Heywood & Radcliffe Canine Society

I thoroughly enjoyed my appointment at this well run, friendly show and thank the committee for inviting me and my steward for his assistance. I had a really nice entry of quality dogs. Thank you to all who entered and allowed me to go over their lovely dogs. All classes were very strong and I was splitting hairs between placings, especially in the puppy class where I wished I could have placed them all.
