City Of Birmingham Canine Association

Breed: Finnish Lapphund

A lovely breed to judge. Although we were second in the ring and judging didn’t commence until after lunch a lovely atmosphere prevailed throughout. My excellent stewards made the day so easy. A carpeted ring always holds smells that dogs find more interesting than the task in hand! Minor points separated the winners and some dogs were not in such good coat which made some decisions easier as the coat description is important. Temperaments were excellent throughout.
