I very much enjoyed my day judging The Bernese Mountain Dog Club of Scotland's Open
Show at Alva. I must commend most of the exhibitors as all dogs were incredibly well 
turned out and I had some very nice examples of the breed.  Overall I was pleased with
temperaments, size and substance. I thank everyone for their support.

Thanks must also go to my very able and efficient steward, John McNulty.
