Many thanks to The Dobermann Club for inviting me to judge their show at their lovely show ground in Digswell, also for their wonderful hospitality given to me and my husband Dave. Not forgetting my two very efficient stewards for their hard work. Thank you to the exhibitors for the marvellous entry given, sadly many very good dogs and bitches having to go cardless.
