Saturday 10th November 2018

Thank you to the committee for the invitation to judge at this lovely show. It was great to have a

large ring for the dogs to be able to move with ease. The hall was quite loud but all the dogs coped

well. I had a lovely entry of quality cavaliers making the journey very worthwhile . Unfortunately the

Chihuahua judge was unable to attend so I was asked to stand in as the replacement judge. Thank

you all for a lovely day.
