I would like to thank the committee for asking me to judge at this show, the exhibitors who came under me and showed extreme sportsmanship to one another, and to my stewards who kept everything running smoothly. I had a most enjoyable day because of this.
The dog judge, Mrs Janet Forsahaw, and I were in full agreement that that my CC winner JONES. CHKORIFEY TREASURE JW Sh CM, should win BEST IN SHOW. We both decided that the BEST DOG winner was to go RESERVE BEST IN SHOW & BEST OPPOISTE SEX, REID. CH KORIFEY BRAVE AI JW. I judged him when he was only 7 months old and said then that he was one to watch in the future.
BEST PUPPY IN SHOW was the Dog Puppy EVANS . KITADO’S VEGEANCE IS MINE. BEST VETERAN IN SHOW was the Bitch. INGRAM CH TRONJHEIM BELLADONA FROM JOJAVIK JW Sh CM, who in 2012, I gave the CC and made her up.
