I do however believe that the Cavalier should be added to that list. No Best of Breed winner should be allowed to go on to the next stage of judging for the best in the group unless they have a MRI certificate.
To bring about change in our breed health needs to be as important as beauty in the show ring
Cavaliers......Faith, The Ginger Tank and Woody.
Japanese Chins.... Dandy, Benny, Bridgette and Hana.
Remembered with love......... Tommy Tuppence and Fonzi
