A big thank you to the committee of the Northern Newfoundland Club for a brilliant show, great venue, large ring and very relaxed and friendly, I had a fantastic day, judging superb quality dogs. I thank everyone who entered under me and allowing me to go over their lovely dogs. It was nice to see some promising youngsters, will watch with interest how they develop. If I were to make an observation, it is that exhibitors should not confuse "power and strength" with speed. Good construction and fitness will drive you around the ring.
