Last night at club training USA Judge Bill Szentmiklosi was singing the praises of two young ladies he had the privilege of judging over the weekend. Bill is not an easy man to impress, and when he returns from judging assignments he rarely, if ever, speaks of the competitors' performances. Yet last night was very different. He said from start to finish their trial decorum was exemplary, from the way they reported in to the handling of their tracking lines, and the professionalism with which they presented themselves throughout all the trial procedure was above and beyond what he normally observes. He said he wished he had a video recorder to capture their performances so everyone could see just how handling a dog in a trial should be done.
Hats off to Lily and Rosellen Westerhoff!
