Crufts

Breed: Italian Greyhound

      Italian Greyhound  CRUFTS

It has been a few years since I last judged the breed as I felt they were so many different types. They have certainly improved and although sometimes I had to forgive some things on the whole I enjoyed judging the breed much more than in the past .Thank you for the entry.
