May I start by thanking the SKC for offering me this wonderful appointment and allowing me the opportunity to further my interest in the breed. Thanks must go to the exhibitors for allowing me to judge their dogs and take placings in a decent sportsmanship manner of support for one another. Thanks must also go to my 2 stewards of the day Joy and Dianna who despite being fairly new to stewarding did wonderful job of keeping everything in a timely manner.
