This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.

A lovely entry both numerically and with lots of quality. Temperaments were absolutely first rate and all of the exhibits were well groomed. Thank you very much to all of the exhibitors and to my great steward, Sharon Rose who managed so well on her own.
