Critique GSP Bitches

My thanks to the Officers and Committee of the Northern HPR Club for the invitation to judge at this lovely show, and to the lovely people who brought some absolutely super girls for me to judge. Also huge thanks to my lovely efficient steward Carolyn . Really pleased with my entry and some difficult decisions. Absolutely thrilled to learn on arriving home after 5 hours driving, that my BOB Bitch had gone BIS, and my BPIB had gone BPIS - definitely the icing on the cake of a super day out.
