Judge: Melanie Mann (Melangel)
Firstly a big thank you to the members of the Scottish Papillon Club for the invitation to judge their December open show. This was my first Judging appointment in Scotland being able to get away from home for 3 whole days spending Saturday in Edinburgh and Monday at the Kelpies & the Falkirk wheel made the weekend really enjoyable.
Many thanks to the Committee for their very well run, friendly show, my able steward Nicola Pitcaithly for guiding me through the classes, of course, the friendly Exhibitors for their entries and sporting way they took my decisions. Having recently become Deputy Rescue Coordinator of the Papillon (Butterfly ) Dog Club , it was great to see so many rescued Papillons & their owners joining in the fun at lunchtime and made the show feel really inclusive.
I was delighted with my final line up – quality Papillons and so similar !
