Judged by Lynn Crane
May I convey my thanks to The Japanese Chin Club for their kind invitation to judge the Special Classes at this prestigious Memorial Show. Also, thanks to the exhibitors for their lovely entry and their sporting acceptance of my decisions. Without exception, the dogs were all very well presented and I had some lovely exhibits to assess. Thank–you for a very enjoyable day.
