I was truly delighted and honoured to judge the E.A.S.B.T.C Breed Open show, Many thanks goes to the Officers and Committee for this lovely opportunity and very thoughtful presentation.  I know the hard work and organisation that goes into running a show so well done on running a very enjoyable day for all. Special thank you to my two wonderful stewards Caroline and Steve for their fantastic job in keeping the ring running smoothly throughout the day and for their professionalism and company; I would like to also thank Lesley and Paul for their wonderful hospitality and many laugh and, thank you to Jo-Ann for her excellent photographs xx


My biggest thank you goes to the exhibitors - without your entries there would be no show. I sincerely thank you all for allowing me to judge your wonderful Staffords and accepting my decisions in an honourable manner. My overall impression on the day was that the future is very bright for the youngsters in both sexes as they pushed the older ones all the way. I found a few mouths hadn't got the correct scissor bite but over all was very pleased with the quality presented in front of me xx
