Thank you to the Committee of the above show for the invitation to judge some of the Toy Breeds. A lovely well run show with true North East hospitality! I must also thank my Steward, Barry, who on the day kept everything running smoothly, but importantly I mustn’t forget the exhibitors who brought along all their lovely dogs for me to judge so a big thanks to them too.
