I would like to thank the club and committee for inviting me to judge the show and extending Linda and I such fantastic hospitality a big pat on the back for a friendly show extremely well run. A big thankyou to Ken and Clair Green and Helen Merry also to my Stewards Kay Woodward and Sandy Hall for their assistance. It was an absolute privilege to have such a lovely entry of quality dogs a big thankyou to the exhibitors for travelling so far for my opinions and showing such good sportsmanship in accepting my decisions. I found the breed consistent with the majority showing correct balance, lay of shoulder, and dark almond eyes divided by fluting giving the head such softness and true Springer Type. I would have preferred a much larger ring to see the dogs get into stride, generally movement was sound and gait correct Springer. It was certainly a most enjoyable day.
