Judge: Mrs C G Brace
Thanks to my two excellent stewards who were extremely efficient and the exhibitors who managed to be cheerful in spite of the storm raging outside the marquee.
I found temperaments to be excellent . Mouths were all good and all had clean teeth. Some feet were not wonderful and some nails could have done with a trimming. Coats and presentation were a credit.
