Weimaraner - Judge: Pat Butler-Holley

 I was surprised to see how many youngsters showed a little nervousness at first. I hope by myself

Showing a little kindness it helps them going forward. Sadly in some areas of the country ringcraft

Hasn't been able to run due to covid restrictions. Please don't despair and keep up the socialisation.

Delighted with my winners and thank you.
