Leeds City & District Canine Association

Breed: Chihuahua (Smooth Coat)

I would like to thank the exhibitors for their entry, and the sporting way they accepted my decisions. It is a testament to the breed that none of the exhibits seemed remotely concerned by the noise of the thunder overhead during judging. Thank you also to the exhibitor who lent the mat for the judging table.
