We arrived at 10:30. The car park was practically impassable then. Luckily we were at the back of the car park and at 4pm all we had to do was to reverse back 20 meters on to the hard surface.
The benching was in 2-3 inches of water and the rings were not much better. This was challenging for little white fluffy dogs. Our judge Rita Morgan was outstanding. When we arrived she was judging King Charles Spaniels, then Min Pins and eventually the Coton de Tuléar. She did this without a break! Her sense of humour did not desert her in spite of the wet and the cold. Thank you Rita for making a miserable day most enjoyable. Congratulations to the stewards as well who continued cheerfully throughout.
