I wish to extend my gratitude to the members of the Hungarian Vizsla Club of NSW for the invitationto judge your 22nd Specialty. The entry was most pleasing and I was impressed with the overall quality. I felt the bitches had more depth of quality than the males which is encouraging for the future of the breed as it ensures the probability of compounded quality being passed on.
I would also congratulate all exhibitors present on the evening for your good sportsmanship that was demonstrated. Congratulations to all on what appears to me as being a successful Specialty and thank you for your hospitality.
