Open Show 17th October 2015

Judge Ms Sonja Nilsson (Roseridge)

The Southern Rhodesian Ridgeback Association Open Show, 17th October 2015

 

Thank you all exhibitors who so showed their dogs for me in the bitterly strong wind! I do hope you donít blame my Swedish origin for the cold weather!
Otherwise I had a lovely day at the Open Show and noticed especially the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. All of the dogs were easy to handle Ė I had none who was shy or aggressive and all displayed the lovely hound mentality that we all love.
