Judged by Mrs E Rushton
I was honoured to be invited to judge this show and delighted with my entry. It was a great pleasure and privilege to go over so many beautiful Chins. In several classes I was spoilt for choice and could have done with more than one first place.
A few exhibits would have benefitted from carrying a little more weight; a well-covered, well exercised dog portrays the attributes of this elegant breed most favourably.
I felt that quality in all the puppy classes was excellent, and this can only be good for maintaining the future of the breed.
