My thanks for the invitation to judge this breed; my last CC judging appointment (having decided to retire gracefully !!) 

Also many thanks to the committee, and especially Fay, for the surprise party –a most generous and appreciated gesture. The icing on the cake was the visit from my husband who really enjoyed himself. Well done the Midland. 

Round eyes are creeping back as is weak rear movement. Bone was good throughout; teeth were clean. 


Vet Dog (2) Two lovely old boys enjoying their day out. 

1-Presnails Taree Useless Loop. Balanced head; well placed shoulders into good ribbing and short loin. Kept a level topline on the move.Best veteran 

2-Corners Holrick Mr Mischief. Thirteen years of age and enjoyed his showing. Not the movement of winner.
