JUDGE MR. KEVIN TITTLEY (GARWSTAFF)
I would like to extend my gratitude to the committee for looking after me in the show today and a special thank you to my steward who made my job easier so I could concentrate on the show. I had a large entry and I must thank the exhibitors for travelling long distance at a time when money is tight. It meant a lot so Thank you!!
Owners had put time and effort into getting their dogs fit and the winners that I picked & placed are great examples of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier. I had the pleasure of judging quality dogs and had a few difficult decisions to make because the standard was so high. I had a really enjoyable day so once again Thank you!
