Breed: Retriever (Nova Scotia Duck Tolling)

Blackpool Champ. Show, June 25th, 2022. Judge; Henric Fryckstrand (Sweden)

My sincere thank you to the committee of Blackpool for inviting me to this smoothly run and very well-organized show. It was a sheer pleasure to be back judging and I thoroughly enjoyed my entry of the high-quality breeds I had been given. I would like to thank the exhibitors for accepting my decisions so sportingly and to my two efficient ring stewards who made my day very pleasant.


I am delighted I had the opportunity to judge the Tollers for the second time in the UK. I was really pleased with my top honours and I was amazed when reading the catalogue to find out the relations between the winners. It really proved a family affair as they were so close connected.
