SKYE TERRIER CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW 24 SEPTEMBER 2021
JUDGE MRS MONICA BARRACLOUGH (WEMOWAY)
Thank you to the Officers, Committee and Members for honouring me with this prestigious appointment. I was delighted with the entry and thoroughly enjoyed my time judging. Thank you too, to the exhibitors, the ring was not made available for us until 3.45pm which meant we all had to drive home in the dark. I had deliberately avoided involvement with the breed for 3 years, I wanted to see the skyes with fresh eyes. Previously I had concerns regarding height and heads, hoping that quantity would not overtake quality, I was pleased that quality today was oozing, in spades! All the skyes were temperamentally sound, I found no health Issues, well done everyone. Special thanks must go to Robyn, my very able steward.
