I would like to thank the Welsh Society for inviting me to judge at their show and this my first time awarding CCs. I was made very welcome and had an enjoyable day. I would also like to thank my stewards who kept me in line.
I judged the dogs as they were presented on the day; on another day things could have been different. I thank the exhibitors for accepting my decisions. I was looking for a balanced dog with sound movement.
