NATIONAL WORKING AND PASTORAL - 2017

Steve Clark

I was very pleased to be asked to judge PMD again after such a long time with no judging appointments.
Thanks to Sue Garner and Mrs Ann Arch for a lovely day at NW&PBS. I was very pleased with entry of 40 dogs of good quality although some were out of coat and some may have been under weight to breed standard i.e. 50kg for Dogs and 40 kg for bitches. Thank you to all the exhibitors, I hope you enjoyed your day as much as I did.
