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. When reading the catalogue, I realized that it turned out to be a very much family affair as the dog CC is a son of the veteran who achieved the res CC and the bitch CC winner had three progenies winning their classes
