Crufts Judge: Mrs Kay Woodward

My thanks go to all the Exhibitors from both home & abroad for allowing me the opportunity to Judge your lovely dogs, in some classes more prize cards were needed!! Heads varied quite a lot & we still have quite a few light eyes. Presentation with just a few exceptions was excellent, I thoroughly enjoyed my day.
