In the beginning
Began showing as a schoolgirl as my mother was a successful breeder and exhibitor of Pembroke Welsh Corgis. In1970 started breeding and exhibiting Salukis under the Mabrooka kennel name and have won over 100 CCs and owned/bred 13 champions in this breed. Bred my final litter in 1999 and retired from exhibiting in 2007.
I have been judging all breeds at Open shows since 1964. Nowadays I judge all the breeds in the UK Hound Group, 2 Pastoral, 2 Utility, 1Toy breed and BIS at General Ch Shows and regularly judge all- breed Champions/Veterans/Puppy Stakes classes at these shows. I judged the Hound Group at Crufts in 2009 and am honoured to be chosen to judge Best in Show at Crufts 2020. I've judged at Ch level in the USA in California, New York & Florida, also in Australia and on numerous occasions in Europe.
I have been a Trustee and past Convenor (chairman) of the Scottish Kennel Club, a Board Member of the Kennel Club, Vice-Chairman of Crufts and Chairman of the KC Judges Sub-Committee until my retirement from office this year. I am Chairman and a founder committee member of the Hound Association of Scotland and President of the Scottish Kennel Club and was recently elected an Honorary Life member of the Kennel Club.
