CRITIQUE: NORTH CENTRAL ILLINOIS PEKINGESE CLUB
Saturday, June 18, 2005 Submitted by: Connie Hayes, Sweepstakes judge
I was honored to judge the Sweepstakes at the 2005 summer specialty. I want to thank all the exhibitors who showed their wonderful Pekes under me. I appreciated your support and good sportsmanship. I want to thank all the NCIPC members for all your help, especially Margaret Myre, the show chair, and Christine Hann, my ring steward.
I want to recognize and thank in a very special way my beloved grandma, Ruby V. Dudley, for all her inspiration and encouragement through all my life. She has shared her experiences and knowledge concerning the Pekingese with me and I love her very much.
