The Northern Cavalier Society Championship Show
3rd August 2019. Doncaster
First of all, I would like to thank the Committee for inviting me to come over from Sweden to judge the Special Award (SAC) classes at their 50th anniversary championship show. I also want to thank Gordon, my ring steward, for his help in the smooth running of these classes. And of course to the exhibitors for giving me such a great entry and some really lovely Cavaliers to go over. Always a pleasure to come over to your country where I find a friendly atmosphere and great sportsmanship. I had a lovely day and enjoyed every minute of it.

Dense pigmentation. Well set, feathered ears. Super balance with a lovely shaped body. Well angulated front and rear. Lovely coat and colouring and shown in tip top condition. Moved so well and carried himself with grace around the ring covering the ground with ease and accuracy. Just loved him
