Leeds City & District Canine Association

Breed: West Highland White Terrier

Leeds Ch Show

It was unfortunate that the Southern WHWT Club scheduled their Ch Show the day before Leeds.

The entry was small but the quality in every class was superb. Placings were down to choice on the day and will change at other shows. I don’t like head hair stiff with products, our breed standard says varminty appearance.
