LKA championship show 15/12/13.

My thanks to the officers and committee for the invitation to judge at this show and for the hospitality my family and I received on the day. I have always loved this show as it breaks up the hustle and bustle of the period leading up to Christmas and it gives us all the chance to enjoy a last outing before the festivities start. I would like to thank all of the exhibitors for their entry. Overall the quality of the entry was very high and I am pleased to say that I found no major faults when going over the dogs though some were lacking in muscle tone which is very important in our breed to allow for correct movement. Presentation as usual was also to a very high standard and I had some very tough decisions in the higher classes where I am sure places will swap and change in the future. I was very pleased with both of my line ups and which had a great depth of quality and some very promising youngsters in them.
