JUDGE: MR A GEDDES

 

With English Springer Spaniels having been a centre piece in my life for so many years all the memories the friends the Heart breaks when you lose one, the special days when puppies were born, the first CC, the Field Day Qualifier, Parcel opening on Christmas morning, watching your favourite Oldie watching and waiting for their parcel.

Memories I have been very lucky which is why I found it such an honour and a privilege to judge the breed at Crufts Championship Show and I thank all the Exhibitors and Handlers along with the Ring Stewards and friends and family for giving me a day to cherish and remember forever.

 

I really feel there was some beautiful Springers on Show today and they did themselves proud they were a credit to the breed and a credit to their Mum’s and Dad’s as well
