Firstly may I thank your Club for allowing me the opportunity of judging your dogs at your Championship Show. Also, the great sportsmanship that all the exhibitors accepted my decisions today, I thoroughly enjoyed the assignment.
Collectively, your dogs have good bone, feet, colour, coat, pigment and dentition. There are some with varying differences in the balance, the angles, the movement and expression. There were some instances of slightly higher tail sets than I would prefer.
However, I was extremely impressed with the consistency and depth of quality of your breed an you are to be congratulated.
