TM SPRING SHOW CRITIQUE

Tibetan Mastiff Spring Show
Tibetan Mastiff Club of GB
thank you very much to the Officers and Committee for inviting me to judge their open show. What a lovely atmosphere there was throughout and such a nice touch to have a Tibetan Monk to bless all the dogs present before the show began.
