My sincere thanks to the Officers and Committee of Blackpool for the opportunity to judge at their show. The grounds were fabulous with large well laid out rings and luckily, we missed the heavy rain shower.
Massive thankyou to my stewards – you simply can’t do the job without them.
Before my judging it was bought to my attention that “predictions” were circulating by some people. Well, you don’t have to be a Mistic Meg to know that my winners would have breed type, good construction and be able to move round the ring with little or no effort, but more about them later.
Some were, however, very sluggish on the move and some just didn’t want to raise their tails, frustrating for both handlers and judge and in some classes, this made a difference to the placings.
I would like to thank Boston C S for the invite to judge and for their hospitality.
My gentlemen stewards were brilliant.
The breed has some stunning dogs and bitches and today I was privileged to judge such exhibits, who have both beauty and are fit. No matter how beautiful the coats are dogs still need muscle and this only comes from exercise. They need to be able to move soundly, sadly this was not the case in a few exhibits.
Thank you for our entry and I wish you all well for 2017
My grateful thanks to the Offices and Committee of this fabulous show for the judging invite.
You really are looked after very well by them. Really enjoyed the whole show.
Many thanks to my stewards for their help.
