I was delighted to accept this judging appointment and want to take a moment to thank you all for making it such a wonderful experience for me. The venue was perfect, my accommodation and meals were first class as was my very able chauffer and my ring stewards who kept both myself and the show running smoothly. I would most of all like to thank the committee for inviting me to judge your show and all the exhibitors who entered their dogs and accepted my placings so graciously. As you all know, beauty is only skin deep, that is of course unless you are judging Bulldogs. For a Bulldog has a personality all of it's own and is a lot more that just 'SKIN DEEP'. Overall, health, temperament, conformation, balance, condition and movement were very evident on the day and great to see all the stars of the future in the puppy classes.
