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.
