I was impressed with the quality of the Mittels exhibited today. All were well presented and temperaments were excellent – they were a pleasure to judge. My apologies for the brevity of the report. I was conscious that with a 10:30 start I had 145 dogs to judge and at 2.5 minutes per dog that would have taken until 4:30 pm and I didn’t want anyone to miss the group.
