Glorious show with the Papillon Dyan taking Best in Show at Birmingham National Championship Show held at Stafford. The weather was cold but dry after the few days of continual rain that everyone had experienced. Papillons were ringed in the Prestwood Centre a spacious ring was laid out with easy access to the main hall. Once again the committee of the show made sure all was ticka –tee- boo and the exhibitors were catered for in every way.
The trade stands were both on the upper gallery and spread out down the main walk way outside. There was a good variation of stalls making sure everyone’s needs were catered for.
