Bulldog Club Of Wales

Breed: Bulldog

I wish to thank the committee of the Bulldog Club of Wales for having invited me to judge their show and going all out to make it an enjoyable event and for their lovely thoughtful gift ,also to my stewards who organised a smooth transition from class to class. Also I thank the exhibitors who travelled from all over the UK Italy and Spain on one of the coldest mornings this winter to participate with 102 dogs of the 138 that had entered and making 141 entries, with the exception of one individual , appeared to accept the results in a sporting manner but although this habitually vexatious exhibitor expressed his frustration in and around the ring in an attempt to influence my judging he failed to do so, as I am too long in the tooth to react to such tactics however it did later provoke an altercation outside the ring with a fellow exhibitor which caused me to suspend judging for a short time and this unacceptable behaviour by disgruntled exhibitors must be nipped in the bud. as it not only intimidates novices (and possibly future judges) but could cause the loss of hard to get venues by bringing dog shows into disrepute and at the end of the day ours is supposed to be an enjoyable sport. . I found a few unsound mouths, wet eyes, heavy tearstain , extremely tight tails or no tails and several with straight hocks with some timidity creeping into the breed who all paid the price in such quality company.
