Richmond Championship Show was held last Friday in glorious weather. Judging Salukis was Mrs Pauline Everton. Pauline had decided this would be her last assignment so befitting this special occasion there was a get together after the show. I understand it was a very nice get together with some of our more senior member of the Saluki fraternity in attendance. From photos, I saw that Chris Ormsby, Tessa Abbot and even the Backstroms were over from Sweden for the occasion.
