My thanks to my stewards who were very hard pushed by exhibitors taking their time to get into the ring, particularly at the end when PD went missing and failed to turn up. Sorry to gripe but fronts were in the main poor, there were three with poor dentition and trimming in far too many cases obscured movement with coat where it should not be left on. In one instance I thought I was in the Chinese Crested ring and sometimes in the Dachshund classes. May I suggest the DDTC trimming guide as a starting point for a lot of people!
