Windsor Dog Show Society

Breed: Bloodhound
I would like to thank the Windsor Championship Show Committee for the honour of being invited to judge the Bloodhounds at their 2018 Show. This has always been my favourite championship dog show and I think the committee do a five star job year in year out come rain or shine. Also my thanks to the exhibitors for entering under me and the opportunity to go over their hounds most of them travelling many hours to do so this I really appreciate. I understand that my BOB gained her title today so I can think of no better way than that to bow out at the ripe old age of 72 of show judging and hand over to our up and coming younger Bloodhound judges I hope they get as much pleasure as I have over the years.
