Critique - Judge Sean Rose

Firstly thank you to the committee for this offer and opportunity to judge these breeds. It was a lovely show and very well run and organised with space in the rings for the exhibitors to move their dogs. It was a lovely venue and well laid out. Secondly, thank you to the exhibitors for their entry and presenting their dogs so beautifully for me to judge. I had a thoroughly enjoyable day and even though neither of my best of breeds were placed in the group I was happy with my selections.
