Judging Report for Smooth Coat Entry
It was a great pleasure to judge at this show along with James Ferrugia and Nick Ferrugia. A big thank you to the show committee members for putting a very well run show. My entry was, for the most part, of strong type and good construction. Unfortunately teeth (bites) and oral hygiene continue to be an issues that need to be addressed. This judge does not count teeth and the majority of entries appeared to have full dentition.

First Place Diamonchi Mister Moon - This was a happy and promising puppy with good breed type and well constructed. Level top line and good tail set. Moved with confidence around the ring. Really used those flared ears.
