The Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club Of QLD Inc

Sunday August 7th 2016

I would like to thank the dedicated committee of the S.B.TC. of QLD for inviting me, to judge at this wonderful 30th anniversary show, it was a great privilege and a most memorable and enjoyable occasion .

The standard of stewarding was first class, many thanks for making my job easy. I was impressed with the quality of dogs , and how well behaved and well trained they were, the UK could learn from this. Many dogs and bitches here today were shown in tip top condition, coats shining like glass in the sunshine

However there were some mouth problems, with a few exhibits.

I was blown away by the standard of the baby puppy's they were amazing, many will have a promising future.

A big thank you to the exhibitors who accepted my decisions gracefully. I can see how much your dogs mean to you, the love you have for them shines through.
