A really hot and humid day but because it was so showery judging took place in the very good hall. I’m sure many of the dogs would have moved with more enthusiasm out on the lawns. Without exception all temperaments were excellent. I found just one bad mouth. Thank you very much for the sporting manner with which you accepted my decisions. I very much enjoyed the day.

Black and white, very typey with a pleasing head and kind expression. Strong neck and good depth of chest. Compact and very well ribbed with strong muscular arched loin. Shown in hard muscular condition, excels on the move with a free flowing driving action from the rear and he looks so typical in profile. I truly had no recollection of judging him before but I see from my records that I gave him BOB from a good entry at Southampton in 2008. Best Dog and Best in Show.
