My thanks to West Midland for inviting me to judge at this prestigious show. I can say that the day was well run and the standard of exhibits pleasing. My special thanks go to my stewards, Jo and Graham who kept things running smoothly. After attending this show for many years, I feel that I should comment that this was a very good venue. It was nice to see exhibitors having space to set up and also have slightly larger rings to show your dogs properly. Hope we are coming back.
