LADIES KENNEL ASSOCIATION
DALMATIANS 15th DECEMBER 2019
Thank you to the society for inviting me to judge, to the ring stewards who kept things moving smoothly and to the exhibitors. The ring was perfect with plenty of room for the handlers to get the best out of their dogs.
I was disappointed with the number of dogs that were dirty and out of condition and this, at times, affected my placing.
