Ayrshire Collie Club
Open show 18th March 2019

Many thanks to the committee for inviting me to judge here today, as always a well run show with friendly atmosphere. Thanks also to my stewards George and Scott who did a grand job and of course a big thank you to all exhibitors who gave me such a lovely entry and accepted my judgements so sportingly.   I had  promising youngsters just starting out on exciting show careers and at the other end of the scale I could have awarded  all the veterans a 1st place.  Exhibits had scissor bites and dogs were entire.
