Afghan Hound Club of Scotland Open Show 2nd June 2019
Dr Kimberley Mackenzie (Eilthir)
Thank you to the AHCS for inviting me to judge their show. Started out damp and grey but
the sun came out just in time for the photos at the end. I had a lovely, and very
international, entry which was really exciting so thank you all for braving the Scottish
summer to come and show me your lovely dogs.
