Judge – Mrs Jane Eyeington (Meadowdale)

I would like to thank Jackie Lane and her hard working team for the invitation to judge this fabulous breed. It was a real honour to have the privilege to judge such a super entry both numerically and in quality. A huge Thank you to the exhibitors for making it a special day, with your lovely dogs. The weather was mostly kind to us, managing to get to Limit bitch outside in the pleasant sunshine before the heavens opened. In a matter of seconds, we were all rather soaking wet and had to move into the cattle shed to finish judging.
