Just a general overview. I was very impressed with the quality of beagles that I was honoured to judge. The majority had lovely shoulders and lovely upper arm length. I saw what I think is a group of people very dedicated to taking care of the quality of their breed including type and temperament, strong movement and exquisite headpieces. I thank you from my heart for having me judge your lovely dogs!
