The Northern King Charles Spaniel Club Championship show
April 2018 judge Miss T Ireland (Ellemich)
I would like to thank the officers and committee, for inviting me to judge this well run and friendly show. A special thank you must go to my stewards, Ron Stewart and Zach Chapman, my ring could not of been run more smoothly. The show had a lovely atmosphere and for that I must thank the exhibitors, for the sporting way in which they took my decisions. On the whole I felt bitches were stronger in quality, in saying that I had some beautiful quality dogs to award top honours to. It was lovely to see some new faces, and I must say they put many of the more experienced exhibitors to shame with there handling and presentation. I loved my winners and thoroughly enjoyed my day, judging a breed that owns a piece of my heart.
