Thank you to the committee for asking me to judge today. This my first time awarding CC in Miniature Wires. I was very impressed by the quality of the exhibits, some coats were a little sparse but the time of year and the fact that Crufts is on the horizon I took this into consideration, teeth on the whole were good, some could be cleaner, temperaments were wonderful. I was looking for a Standard in Miniature which I think I found in all my principle winners.
