Durham County Canine Association

David Robbins, Judging Critique Durham County Canine Association - 15th July, 2018 I was asked to stand in for Jen Davies who was not too well and our best wishes go to her for a speedy recovery. Having been associated with this show since its inauguration, whilst exhibitors enjoy the superb layout, large flat rings, etc etc, I am sure that most do not appreciate the work behind the scenes over several days, in arranging such a spectacle. It really is a marvelous show and surely the best venue I have ever seen over 50 years of showing and judging, with large flat rings in beautiful surroundings. Well done to everyone concerned. Thanks also to my very efficient steward. HOUND GROUP Min. S/H Dachshund Special Yearling (9) 2 absent 1. Cumberland MUMYSAMI CLICALICIOUS FOR YORAMI 18month dog.
