I would like to thank the committee and especially my steward Ian Blackshaw who did a sterling job. I am not a lover of the double shows and today with the very hot conditions alot of the exhibits were showing that they had had enough after the first event. Some of my decisions would have been different in certain classes had the dogs performed differently and presentation is key. It was disappointing to find several exhibits with dirty teeth as there is no excuse for this. Also poor fronts, upright shoulders and short ribbing needs attention especially in the dogs.
