Boston & DCS Championship Show 2022, Pomeranians

Judge: Mrs Nataliya Davey.

I would like to say a huge thank you to the Boston show committee for the invitation to judge my favourite breed at their Championship show. As always, a very well-run event and huge respect go to the team for all their hard work for the show to go ahead in these extremely worrying times.

Thank you to my two lovely stewards, especially Emily, who showed excellent skills and kept the ring running smoothly.

I would like to extend a huge thank you to all the exhibitors who supported my appointment. Very much appreciated. With 50 making 72 entries it was a fabulous entry.

I thoroughly enjoyed my judging appointment which I had been very looking forward to.
