Judge – Mrs Jane Eyeington (Meadowdale)

I would like to thank the committee for their invitation to judge at this festive show, just a couple of days before Christmas. And to the exhibitors for the pleasure of your lovely dogs. Such a shame we had such a small ring, so thank you for bearing with me whilst trying to give each dog the chance to move. Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and wish you well for the New Year
