Manchester Dog Show Society Champ Show, 20.01.2022.

I enjoyed my day on the 'woolsack' at Manchester Champ Show. Nice start to New Year with a couple of pleasing Breed entries. Thanks to the Officers & Committee for the invite and to my Ring Stewards, Preston & A Hoffenden, who did a stirling job on the day allowing me to concentrate on the job on hand. To the exhibitors, thanks for the entry, I enjoyed your dogs.

Ladies Kennel Association. 10th. December 2017.

Well what can one say, what a day. A n early snowy drive in, snow all day and snow all the way home. Not just the exhibitors deciding to stay at home, or stuck on the way in, but Judges in the same predicament, A nightmare for the hard working Committee who must be congratulated on pulling out all the stops on the day.
I was present at the 'Great Snow In' at LKA way back in '89 when exhibitors ended up spending the night tucked up on the benches.
I was scheduled to judge the Scotties and a nice entry awaited me. Ended up judging the Lakies as well for Rachel Pearce was snowed in.
Thanks to all who braved the weather, and the long wait juggling the rings.
