The Midland Dobermann Club Championship Show 15th November 2015

A huge thank-you to the Committee of the Midland Dobermann Club for Inviting me to Judge at their Championship Show and for making me so welcome.
I was bowled over by the overall quality of the bitches and as a result there were some difficult decisions to be made.
I was thrilled with my Final Line-up and eventual CC & Res CC Winners. Special thanks to each and every exhibitor for your entries-it was a Fab day for me-Karen Barlow
