MANCHESTER January 21st, 2023, Judge Mr Henric Fryckstrand, Sweden


It is always the greatest of honours to judge the Gundog breeds in their native country. This time I had the pleasure to judge WSS. I would like to thank the committee of Manchester for the invitation and the exhibitors for so sportingly accepting my decisions. I thoroughly enjoyed the judging and was spoilt for choices. WSS is a lovely breed with an attractive balanced outline and the beautiful coat and colour plus the smooth movement makes a wonderful picture. I was delighted to see my BOB being short-listed in the Group.
