ARCHIVE 2008

Manchester & Counties Limit Show Sunday 25th May 2008 
Judge: Miss Inger Bjorkman (Multums),Sweden.

I had the great pleasure to judge the Manchester & Counties Bulldog Club’s Limit show.
“Thank you” to the committee for inviting me and also a big thank you to the exhibitors for giving me such a big entry, 79 dogs. 
 
The overall quality was good but I found the bitches in general better than the dogs but in my winners I found what I was looking for – standard sized, compact and good moving dogs. 
I had some straight toplines and quite a few straight back ends, jaws were good on most of the dogs and I was pleased with the movement. 
 
I enjoyed my day, everyone in the committee took really good care of me and my excellent stewards made it run smoothly in the ring and easy for me.
Inger Björkman, Multum´s.
