With a good entry & fine weather it was a pleasure to judge the breed at this level. Overall I found only two with borderline dentition but it was disappointing to find so many with such bad tarter coating their teeth. I was also very surprised to see so many that while looking good standing when asked to move dropped their tails & rear ends completely spoiling their movement, showing a timidity I did not expect within the breed.

a very mixed class of youngsters at different stages of development, some rather timid which affected the quality of their movement, winner having a pleasing head, intelligent expression & good dentition. Nicely built with well placed shoulders, balanced ratios & a pleasing outline both standing & moving, good bone for his age & strong feet. BP
