Manchester 2013 Judged by Alan Beeston
My thanks to Manchester Ch Show for the honour of Judging “the classic” and I must also thank my three superb Stewards who went about their work most efficiently and made my task so much easier. Most of all my sincere thanks to all Exhibitors who battled their way through what must have been difficult journeys in the snow and blizzards to attend.
All exhibits were presented in nice clean condition with clean teeth and all temperaments were good. There were one or two good dogs who were unfortunately somewhat unsettled on the day which did affect my placings in certain Classes. There were a few variations in size, make & shape in the younger Classes however I was pleased with my overall winners who exhibited strong flowing movement and good conformation to the Breed Standard. The higher Classes had many quality exhibits which it was a pleasure to Judge.
