CRITIQUE

First of all I would like to thank the TM committee for inviting me to judge the club show, also big thanks to my two stewards who made everything hassle free and easy, but the biggest of thankyous to everyone that entered and accepted the places of the dogs graciously. I was looking for balance without exaggerations and was very pleased with what I found.
