James Newman’s Critique from May 2014 Championship Show

It was a really huge honour for my to award my 1st set of CC’s at the Scottish Pom Club a show which I have very fond memories over the years, I felt breed type varied a lot on the day with unsound movement and side profile movement was poor many poked and lost the classic pom shape on the move and correct mouths were a huge concern for me a day with many undershot A special and sincere Thank you to Kay Mc Dowall (Secretary)  and her fantastic committee so making me feel so welcome and of course the exhibitors who took my class placement in such a sporting manner.
