Thank you to the committee for inviting me to judge . Little did I know this would be my last time at a dog show for a few months .

Stovies were a treat . The dogs were of an excellent quality , thank you for entering under me . 


Hungarian Vizsla 

Puppy 

1st Your Choice Mega Heist By Caorunn , my notes say feminine with substance . Lovely puppy who presented a balanced outline stood , deep through her chest and short in back . Steady and true on the move . Promising puppy .BPIB . Looked well when I watched her in the big ring for best puppy .
