Windsor Dog Show Society

Breed: Beagle

Thank you to the Windsor committee for inviting me to judge, it was a real honor to awarded CC’s for the first time in my breed at this prestigious show. My stewards were awesome so efficient and kept me so well organised. Thank you to the exhibitors for your entries and sportsmanship, it was a privilege to judge your hounds. Mouths were a concern; I was disappointed to find three incorrect bites in the younger hounds which led me to wonder if people are checking mouths regularly.
