It was a pleasure to accept an invitation from this friendly society, held in such a stunning setting. Thank you to my stewards who kept the ring running so smoothly.

All dogs had clean feet and correct dentition. Pasterns have improved significantly since dewclaws have been left intact. A lovely entry with some top quality exhibits.
