This was the final Barbados Kennel Club’s All Breeds Championship Dog Show for 2018.

A first time visit for the judge, Ben Reynolds-Frost who seemed to enjoy himself and said he would love to visit again for another judging assignment.

More dogs and more breeds were at this show than the 2018 October show and a Terrier breed, The West Highland White Terrier was introduced to the show ring in Barbados. I believe this is the first time we would have seen this breed in the show ring.

Puppy. No 27. Empire Of Titan’s Nia (Imp) I excused this puppy as in my opinion she should not be shown. She is totally deformed in her front legs.
