Bath Ch Show 2018

Japanese Spitz

My first time with CCs for this lovely breed and it was a terrific entry. I have watched the breed progress for many years and I think my lines ups showed the depth of quality in the breed. Having said that, there were a noticeable number of dogs with a lot of colour in the coat. Also, something I have never noticed before, a few dogs with a very marked stop leading to a furrow across the skull.
