First of all, I would like to say thank you to the Northern Bullmastiff clubs, Officers, committee and their wives for making this a most enjoyable day for me. I felt honoured and privileged to have been asked to judge your championship show and award C.C for my first time; I would also like to thank my stewards Dave & Janet Parry who were so helpful on the day.
I found the Dog and Bitches to be of good standard I hope everyone enjoyed their day as much as I did, and found the new venue alright.
