Bernese News 24th May 2017


I would like to thank the West Of England LKA for inviting me to judge this year and thank them 
for their excellent hospitality. Also to my exhibitors for their support. I feel that the breed is 
moving in the right direction with many dogs of good breed type here today.

Veteran Dog  (1 entry)
1st Wakeland's Ch Collansues Building Bridges At Bramikdel JW.

bone and substance.  Masculine head, good length of neck. Strong topline, moderate hind 
angulation. Moves well in front, closer behind.
