Thank you to the committee for this invitation and the hospitality on the day. I cannot lie, I was absolutely frozen to the bone. But I am a stoic pastoral person and got on with the day. I had an absolute fantastic day, and I cannot thank all the exhibitors enough for their entries. All breeds were well supported, and sportsmanship was wonderful. A couple of grumbles but you’ll get to know I judge the dog on the day and if you want to know why you were placed where you were, come and chat, contrary to popular belief, I’m a nice guy and always happy to chat about my placings.
