CRUFTS - 6 MARCH 2015
Judge: Mrs. Gill M. Barker [Startrek]
"I would like to thank all the exhibitors who entrusted me with the privilege of going over their dogs in an excellent entry and for making the day so enjoyable. The atmosphere was terrific, friendly, sporting and a credit to all exhibitors. It made me proud that there are so many people in the Newfoundland show ring who obviously care deeply for their dogs - I had a wonderful day and thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity to assess so many quality dogs, many of which were unfamiliar to me since I am currently not involved directly in exhibiting or breeding Newfoundlands. However this actually made my job easier since I had very few preconceptions about the dogs entered and was in a position to be completely impartial in my choices. I thoroughly enjoyed examining my catalogue at the end, wondering which dogs I had placed well.
