South Eastern Pyrenean Mountain Dog Club Limit Show 6/10/2019

 Judge Dawn Cochrane.

Firstly I would like to thank the committee for the invitation to judge, I had a lovely day with some quality exhibits and an excellent entry. Thank you to the exhibitors for accepting all placings with good grace and admiral sportsmanship, overall it was an excellent day in a lovely setting with a fantastic breed to appreciate, well done all!

All exhibits were within the height standard for the breed, had correct dentition and the necessary double dew claws.
