I was honoured to be invited to judge dogs for The North Eastern Chow Chow Club on Sunday 3rd May, 2015. Thank you to the hard working and hospitable committee for making my day an enjoyable experience. I was very pleased with the standard, and quality of the dogs. None were shy, and all moved out with ease. The bitch judge Ashleigh Griffin and I were in full agreement on the final awards, and the referee was not called upon, I think he ‘Harry Newton’ enjoyed his day as a spectator.
