Results & Critiques

Having had a ‘soft spot’ for Buhunds for many years, and having owned them for over twenty-five, it was an honour to award CC’s to this lovely breed. This was my first time awarding CC’s to the breed and I was delighted with my entry, both in terms of quality and quantity. Thank you to the WKC Committee for this opportunity and to the exhibitors, all of whom took my decisions with great sportsmanship  –  it was lovely to see enthusiastic applause in every class.
