21 FEBRUARY 2016

My thanks to committee for a well run show.  Also to my stewards Richard and Sue for their hard work.    My thanks to Jenny and Richard’s granddaughter for her help.   Also thank you to Mr.  & Mrs. Finch for donation of the lovely rosettes.

And for the wonderful entry of quality Beardies.   Many I’m afraid went home without prize cards.

I found temperaments fine, all  Beardies were clean and very well presented.  There were some dirty teeth with a build up of plaque.  I was also disappointed in the lack of muscle tone in some.   Beardies are a working breed and I feel they should be in a hard condition, it’s not just coat.   Lots of promising dogs in the younger classes.   Puppy classes in particular.  Lots of up and coming stars who will challenge each other many times in the future.   I shall watch with great interest.
