MANCEHSTER DOG SHOW SOCIETY 17TH JANUARY 2019 JUDGE VIVIEN PHILLIPS

FINNISH SPITZ. THIS WAS ONCE MORE A SMALL ENTRY BUT I FOUND IN MY MAIN WINNERS A BETTER QUALITY THAN LAST TIME I JUDGED THIS BREED. THE HANDLERS THOUGH WITH SOME EXHIBITS DID NOT MAKE MY JOB EASY! I HAD TO WITHOLD 3RD IN OPEN BITCH AS I WAS UNABLE TO GET MY HANDS ON ONE OF THE BITCHES.
