British Utility Breeds 2007 Judged by Chris Oatridge
It was an honour to judge at this show and such lovely dogs to go over. Thank you to exhibitors for a super entry. There were some excellent youngsters in the early classes which bodes well for the future. The quality in the higher classes, especially the bitches, made decisions very difficult at times, and some dogs that I regard very highly had to go cardless.
