I have been waiting this day since I was invited 3 years ago!!!
It is a great honour to judge in such BIG event and in such important show, the Championship Show of the Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of Great Britain!
And with an entry of 209!!! When I was told I didn't know what to say. I was so happy to have had one of the biggest entries but in the other hand I was so scared, it was going to be the first time I judge this big number in one day!
Again Rachel Olive has taken care of me during my short stay in Birmingham. Thank you darling! Everything has been perfect.
My nice hotel, just 5 minutes walk from the NEC
My huge ring at The Kennel Club Building, a dream for lot of dog shows lovers.
My table for some hours, and Ann, one of my stewards, organising everything.
Andy Geeves and Anne Defaye, great stewards who have helped me a lot preparing the dogs and documents.
