  Weimaraner Club Of Scotland Championship Show - Sunday 10th November 2013

 

I would like to thank the Secretary and the Committee of the Weimaraner Club of Scotland for inviting me to Judge at their seasonal Championship Show in Lanark and for making it such an extremely special and memorable occasion for me, and of course my lovely stewards who kept the ring flowing so professionally and in particular the ‘piping in’ and the Remembrance Lament by Stuart Coleman.   Not forgetting the wonderful entries to whom I am truly flattered; you brought me some wonderful dogs, with super characteristic heads, great length of ear, fab knuckled feet and excellent muscular movement for an indoor venue.
