My thanks to the exhibitors for such a high quality entry. To judge this lovely breed was a pleasure, temperaments throughout were excellent. All the dogs were beautifully presented & sparkling clean. My thanks to my efficient stewards who expertly protected the little Chins from the ebullient Bull Terriers in the next ring who periodically lunged into the chin ring much to the consternation of some of the exhibitors – not that the little Chins were perturbed – but we could see an accident waiting to happen.
