Paisley & District Canine Society Open Show 2019

06 January 2019

Papillon Judge: Daphne Watson (Buoncasa)

Best of Breed: Hill’s Caraideas Spelman

It was a great pleasure to be invited to judge some of the Toys at this well attended show. Thanks to the Committee and my very helpful steward, the show was run efficiently and the exhibitors & dogs were all in good form! I was delighted to see that my Pekingese BOB went on to win the Toy Group under Andrew Stewart, then under Anne Wildman BIS – he really is a stunning dog & a very worthy winner. All in all a lovely day.
