I would like to thank the committee for inviting me to judge,I thoroughly enjoyed my day
And thank the exhibitors who brought their dogs under me ,and for the help of my very efficient stewards.
Considering the acoustics in the hall which i think escalated the noise level all the dogs coped very well in my mind.
