|Thank you to the committee for giving me my first ticket appointment in this breed. As many will have been aware this was a very emotional day for me, as mom, who passed away in 2019, had planned to come and support me ringside. Not having her there was difficult, but with the support of a good friend who accompanied me, my amazing stewards, Bill and Trish Gray, and the majority of those exhibiting, I enjoyed the day more than I could have hoped. Thank you one and all. The quality of the bitches, in the main, was far superior than the dogs. Poor toplines and upright stifles were a problem in many and movement was adversely affected as a result. There were only a few present with the correct coat texture and many were just too soft and silky. I think a few weren’t happy with the echoing effect of the hall and could well do far better in a different environment. I could have had my pick for RBCC but my BCC and BOB stood out as the easy winner from the off.|
