She has been my loyal companion animal for the past ten years as I have judged alpacas all over the UK and Europe. This weekend we swop roles and I shall be hers.
However I don't remember Shirley ever carrying all the bags? There's obviously been a bit of a rule change now Shirley is qualified. Seems like the 'companion animal' has suffered a demotion to the role of Donkey or the new BAS Judge is pulling a fast one. I'll find out which as the weekend progresses!
