I don’t think I have ever been to a show with a better atmosphere than the South East & East Anglian Tibetan Spaniel Society championship show at Newmarket Leisure Centre. Exhibitors had obviously come to see their friends & have a good day out & it appeared that they did just that. I was grateful that so many spoke to me during the day & were so friendly. This approach comes from the officials, of course, & I have to say that I saw that lady of many parts, Jane Lilley, in a different light. I admit that I usually tease her disgracefully but this time I was in awe of her excellence as a chairman. Perhaps we should persuade her to conduct seminars on the subject!? It was good to see the retiring sec, Miss Maureen Sharp, looking much better & to meet the new sec, Mrs Alice Riley, full of enthusiasm for her new duties. I was told that the treasurer, Mrs June Tomlinson, has been sitting on various societies’ committees for 45 years. She still keeps all the breed’s archives & is vice-president of this society. The president is Mrs Ann Wynyard & it was good to see her still so interested in the breed — indeed I notice that her Braeduke affix figures in the breeding of many of the top winners.
