I have been your representative for the last few years and I have enjoyed keeping you up to date with all the wins in the UK dog show world. I have had some great successes with my showteam and within the world of dogs and I have achieved far more than I could have dreamt possible. However, after some 40 years of showing dogs it is time to retire. A new and exciting chapter is opening. I wish our new breed note writer all the very best and wish them much happiness in the role.
