My kindest thanks to the committeevof this show for inviting me and for all hard work for this great show. Kay Woodward did such a great job as my ring steward, higly appreciated, thank you all other who worked around, all things were going so smoothly and I had the pleasure and honour to judge so many lovely dogs. Huge thanks for all exhibitors, your dogs were shown in excellent condition and with tender hands. The only note I would like to mention was that many dogs had teeth plaque; white teeth is allways more beautiful view to see. Most dogs shown on that day were showing lovely typical springer temperament, which gives allways smile on the face while judging. Thank you so much, you all made this a day to remember for me!
