Driffield Championship Dog Show

Breed: German Shorthaired Pointer

I believe there were murmurings around the ring on why I did not send the BCC winner through to the group, as the DCC winner's breeder was judging. I always believe you should send through the one you think is BOB on the day irrespective on who is judging the group.
