South Wales Kennel Association 10th October 2019
Held at the Royal Welsh Showground, Bulith Wells
I greatly enjoyed my day and hope all that entered did too, in the higher classes of both dogs and bitches I was really spoilt for choice with some lovely dogs going cardless. I was surprise to see a few upright in pastern, but tail set and carriage needs urgent attention it spoils the whole presentation.
