Judge  Gill Pollard

I would like to thank the society for asking me to Judge, always a priviledge. Also thank you to the exhibitors for entering under me. I had a quality entry and was pleased to stay and support my BOB, BVIB & BPIB. Happy to see my Best Veteran win Veteran Group 2 and my Best Puppy win Puppy Group 1. That was the icing on the cake, well done everyone.

Another super young dog 23 months old, again a stunning head with that wedge shape that's called for, he has fill under the eye giving him true Pyrenean expression and super tight lip line, loved his overall make and shape, correct topline, medium angulation.
