Belfast Dog Show Society

Breed: Spaniel (Irish Water)


23rd September 2023

Henric Fryckstrand


I would like to express my sincere thank you to the committee of the Belfast Dog Show Society for my wonderful appointment. Judging in the UK and many of the native Gundog breeds is the greatest of honour for an overseas judge. The show was very well run and organized by the hard-working committee. I thoroughly enjoyed going over some lovely dogs. I will cherish the memory for a very long time. My two excellent stewards made my day very easy. I would like to thank the exhibitors for sportingly accepting my decisions.
