The British Bulldog Club 125th anniversary open show
Judge MELANIE STAINFORTH “MELJANE” Spain
Sunday 9th July 2017
First of all my sincere apologies to exhibitors and committee for presenting my critique with such lateness. It has been a difficult few months due to some family health issues.
I would like to thank all the members of the committee for inviting me for such special show. Second to mention how well organized the show was; the whole committee was so welcoming and everything
was perfectly managed- the show ring stewards, the canteen, the top quality food, welcoming free drinks for everyone. The location was quite easy to get to and the show was held outdoors as it
was a splendid summer day. The ring was large and allowed people to have their dogs in their cages under the shady trees where it blew a comforting breeze and the temperature was perfect for them.
The people had the choice to sit in the sun and get a nice tan or, a mild sunburn or in the shade and enjoy the breeze. The atmosphere was wonderful and everyone seemed enjoying themselves.
Despite there was quite a few absentees I enjoyed every minute and thank you to the people that did stay and show under me. My pleasure!
These are my results:
