Southampton & District Canine Association Open Show Sunday 22nd July 2018 Judge Mrs Linda Cater, Chihuahuas

I would like to congratulate the committee for their efficiency and thank the exhibitors for their fortitude on what was a blistering hot day. Fortunately all the top-quality dogs on show and their owners - and the Judge! - managed to survive the experience.
