Hi, in reply to your question, as the judge on that day I can only say that I try to be as fair as possible and there were different dogs entered into each catagory and therefore the choices on 1st, 2nd and 3rd places were entirely different, as each catagory did not contain the same dogs. There were so many deerhound x's entered that were not put in the main over 23 rough dog, plus there were bitches entered too.
Hope that this makes it a little clearer and answers your question satisfactorily. Its a hard job to do, as you can never please everyone, but like I say, I always try to be as fair as possible when judging as I have been in this game for over 20 years and have judged shows all over the country.
