I really enjoyed my day amongst sporting exhibitors and the atmosphere around the ringside. There were some superb quality dogs which made for some close decisions. I tried to keep the classes flowing so that the dogs were not getting bored. Unfortunately some had to go home without prize cards, thank you for accepting my placings with good grace.
