                                                                    2021 Championship Show Critique

                   Sep 26th 2021 - The Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cheshire Border Terrier Club Championship Show

                                        Venue: Longridge Civic Hall, Calder Avenue, Longridge, Lancashire.

                                                                       Judge: Mrs D Bullen (Fevstone)


I would like to thank the officers and committee for the hard work and smooth running of the show. I would also like to thank my two stewards for doing an excellent job. The exhibitors seemed to enjoy the show judging by the popularity of my top honours. Unlike one particular exhibitor who needed his teddy putting back in his cot judging by his unsporting behaviour. 4 were found to be unspannable with a couple of bad mouths, also some were far to thin, which is unacceptable and one or two could have smelled a little sweeter. It's all well and good getting dressed up, you are letting your dogs down if they pong.
