Thanks to the society for the invitation and their hospitality and to the exhibitors for bringing their lovely dogs for my appraisal and huge thanks to the stewards who went above and beyond to keep the ring running smoothly and to make my day easier. Overall I thought the quality was good but I was disappointed to find a number of undershot bites.
