Thank you to the Windsor committee for the invitation to judge at their prestigious show and many thanks to my excellent stewards for their very professional attentions. On the day, the weather was a real worry for the dogs (and some of the owners too). My congratulations to all of the Bernese competitors for keeping their dogs safe and as comfortable as possible in such extreme conditions. It is such a pity that not all other competitors took the same approach and still thought it reasonable to leave dogs in their cars and vans.
