Darlington Championship Show

15 Sept 23

 Thank you to the committee for inviting me to judge at your show and thanks to all the exhibitors who entered and came under me and accepted my decisions. I had a lovely time.

 Hungarian Wirehaired Viszlas

I had an excellent entry for a mid- week show and enjoyed judging this lovely breed again. Since I previously judged them, coats have improved tremendously with true wirey textures instead of the fluffy coats I had found previously. I was delighted to find out after I had judged that both my CC winners were made up on the day and most of the exhibitors showed good sportsmanship and appeared to have approved of my decisions.
