An enjoyable if rainy day in Exeter where I was honoured to officiate at this prestigous show where I had judged golden retrievers many years ago. Thanks must go to the excellent Committee, my exemplary stewards Clare Hill and Debbie Stansbury and of course most thanks must go to the exhibitors who afforded me the privilege of assessing their quality dogs.
