Pup of the year 2016

2016 CRITIQUE

CHELMSFORD &DISTRICT CANINE SOCIETY LIMITED SHOW 2nd.OCT.2016
How I wish more societies would run Limited shows.They are an excellent place to learn more about a wide variety of breeds and the dogs,especially the younger ones,benefit from the more relaxed atmosphere.Too many new exhibitors begin with championship show entries.Would they start a racing career with the Derby?
As the judge,I was pleased to have the opportunity to assess so many different breeds.Those at the ringside sportingly applauded my winners.Thank you one and all for a memorable day.
