2007 Championship Show
I was very honoured to be asked to judge the first ever championship show which was one of the friendliest and well organised shows I have had the pleasure of judging.
I found only one dog with misplaced teeth, I found no bad feet, no badly carried tails. I found correct shaped eyes, one or two nervous youngsters and saw no aggression of any kind at any time which has to be top marks and gave me a doubly enjoyable day judging a breed I have adored for many generations.
BIS was Ch Zougani Zamba; RBIS, Ch Hayawani Kamamba Rangi To Faahac; and BP, Veldtkammer Face Bovvered.
