Breed: Retriever (Labrador)

Border Union Championship show 2018

Labrador Retrievers

I would like to thank the Committee for giving me the opportunity to award my first set of Challenge Certificates at their show. Being the first judge from Northern Ireland in 40years to award cc’s in the breed it was a great honour and privilege to accept the appointment.

It was great to be able to get hands on so many quality dogs, and some that I have admired from the ring side. I would like to thank those exhibitors whom entered under me and accepted my decisions in a sporting manner.
