Firstly my thanks to the officers committee for the invitation to judge, a big thank you to Gareth and Ceri for their hospitality, My stewards Richard Stafford and Daniel Lambert on keeping me in order, I enjoyed my day very much, and finally to the exhibitors for many of them making the long journey into Wales. It was an honour for me to be able to go over some outstanding exhibits.
I was extremely pleased with all my winners and could have done with a few more red cards. I do think that some dogs could do with more substance a little light in bone, Narrow in head or too broad and too heavy, poor movement a problem some fronts need watching with many lacking in width and depth of forechest. And I would like more width of second thigh on some of the exhibits, I was asking myself what has happened to the lovely expression and work in the head, Plain heads is not an option they should have melting expressions
Perhaps having the opportunity to go over some of the top winners in the breed would help, seeing is not always what is underneath.
Finally: Most exhibits were well presented and with happy temperament so huge thank you to all of you.
