CRITIQUE BY RITA MORGAN ON OUR OPEN SHOW 26TH AUGUST 2007

This show was held in Lochgelly Town Hall, just outside Edinburgh. This is an old mining town which is now being regenerated. The venue inside was really beautiful with a free car park as well, something to be cherished. The entry of 62 quality) dogs was very complimentary and I very much enjoyed my day. Thank you every one for inviting me, we so enjoyed your Scottish hospitality and I also had an excellent steward. .
