” It was a great privilege and honour to be judging the Bulldog mother club and the oldest canine society in the world.
I remember my first time showing at this club and it still has the wow factor.
I would like to thank the exhibitors for the 134 dogs entered making 140 entries.
My thanks go to the hard working committee and especially the exhibitors who made the journey to the show in heavy snow and difficult weather, I hope they all arrived safely home.
Since my last judging appointment, I can see the improvement in the health of our beloved bulldogs, but we cannot let our guard down. We do need to work on the eyes and the tails.”
