Manchester Championship Show 2018
Judge: Mrs G Franklin
My thanks to the Manchester Champ Show Committee for the invitation to judge at your show and congratulations on the new layout giving exhibitors more room in the benching area and good sized rings. Not an inch was wasted.
The presentation of the Bolognese isn’t easy, especially in the winter. Having to keep the dogs clean in bad weather can be difficult. The atmosphere around the ring was happy and excited, from both the dogs and exhibitors.
Many thanks to the Stewards who kept everything running smoothly.

All male, masculine head, dark eyes, good scissor bite, good pigment. Shown in full coat. Moved around the ring with enthusiasm.
2nd: 2233 HAIG Mr P A & Mrs G I Aemilia’s Marcus Aurelius
Larger than first. Not so co-operative with his handler when going round. Little more attention to his coat would improve the overall picture. Delightful temperament.
