View Full Results

Judge : Mrs Vikki Grugan
This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.

I would like to thank the committee for the invitation to judge their Championship show, my hard-working steward and the exhibitors for their entries. I did find a number of scrambled mouths also white of eye seems to be on the increase neither of these should be encouraged, it is lovely to have a high tail but you also need a level topline. I found my dogs more of a type, the bitches were more of an any variety. Having said all that, I was delighted in my winners.
