Driffield Championship Dog Show
My sincere thanks to the Committee of Driffield for this invitation. Having had my 2020 Appointment cancelled due to the Covid Crisis I was very fortunate that I had already been invited here for 2022. I have been looking forward to it for a long time and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. The entry may have been small but the quality was there in abundance. I really did enjoy judging your dogs and thank you all for bringing them forward for my consideration. It was a brilliant start to what was a very busy day judging.
