The Northern King Charles Spaniel Club
Championship Show 16th April 2016
I was looking forward to Judging the 130th Anniversary Show in 2017 , but it was rather unfortunate that the judge elect Ros Baker (for this year 2016), had an accident which prevented her from judging today, so I would like to thank all exhibitors for accepting my placings in such good spirit.
Please do not blame me for some of the name mis-spellings, Ihave to take what is printed!
In general all the dogs were clean, well presented and typical of the breed. It has been 4 1/2 years since I last judged and I feel that the breed is holding it’s own.
