Thank you to the committee for giving me the opportunity to judge one of my favourite breeds & to the exhibitors for a really nice entry.

I found all your dogs presented in excellent, clean condition – all my entry was a pleasure to judge. Rear movement on some dogs could be better, quite a few moved close behind.
