East of England 2017 Judged by Miss Fiona McVicar
East of England Agricultural Society

7th July 2017


I would like to thank the committee for inviting me to judge Dalmatians at their show. It was a lovely show and the beautiful weather made it more enjoyable. I would also like to thank my very efficient stewards for their hard work on the day.

I was disappointed to see some exhibits with severe Dally rash, which obviously had to be taken into account. Also, some dirty exhibits and dogs in poor condition. However the quality in the higher classes more than made up for this.
