MASTIFF ASSOCIATION CHAMP SHOW

SATURDAY 21st FEBRUARY 2004
Judge: Mr Louis McDonald (Longendale)

I was very pleased and proud to have been invited to officiate at this prestigious show with an excellent entry of 111 dogs, making 108 entries. I was very impressed by the venue and the carpeted ring, with the perimeter enclosed by a recently purchased chain link and post fence. My many thanks to the two ring stewards, ably assisted by Mr Lee Williams and Miss Tracey Jopson, who made my duties more manageable. Also to the committee for providing an excellent lunch for my wife and I and the kind gift which was very much appreciated. There have been many comments recently about the unsoundness and overall quality of the breed in general, but on the day, I found this fear to be unfounded and furthermore if careful and selective breeding takes place with some of the bitches and dogs on offer today, if available, then the future looks quite promising. I found that the majority of the placings in many of the classes, such was the quality, that the seconds and thirds should not be disappointed.
