My Thanks to the Committee for the invitation . A Good entry awaited me, the show was a well run friendly event.. All Miniature Smooths without exception had a good positive attitude ,Mouths were also good . Rib cages did however not prove as positive , there were at least 2 that you could see were Flanged without even putting your hands on them ..
This is a beauty competition in its broader sense and dogs are meant to have fur on them ..
Having said that my winners pleased me greatly, and this must bode well for the future of the breed, I take this opportunity to congratulate the Breeders who have worked tirelessly to put the wrongs right in this breed. Its never easy trying to put a Standard into Miniature.. Thank you to all who entered .
I Was delighted to stand and watch my Best of Breed go Best in Show, also My Best Puppy go Best Puppy in Show , many congratulations to both owners..
