NOVA SCOTIA DUCK TOLLING RETRIEVERS. CITY OF BIRMINGHAM JUDGE VIVIEN PHILLIPS 2/9/2018

I WAS DELIGHTED T O JUDGE THIS BREED AGAIN. HAVING SPENT SEVERAL YEARS COMPETING WITH THEM IN IMPORTED REGISTER, I HAVE FOLLOWED THEIR PROGRESS WITH INTEREST.. I FOUND IN MY WINNERS GOOD TYPE, PLENTY OF BONE WITHOUT BEING TOO HEAVY AND IN THEIR MOVEMENT I FELT THEY COULD DO A DAY’S WORK AT WHAT THEY WERE BRED FOR. SOME EXHIBITS LACKED BONE AND NOVA SCOTIA DUCK TOLLING RETRIEVERS. CITY OF BIRMINGHAM. JUDGE VIVIEN PHILLIPS. 2/9/18

SUBSTANCE AND I THINK THIS SHOULD BE WATCHED FOR THE FUTURE.

EAR AND EAR SETS WERE CORRECT. SOME RATHER ROUND AND LIGHT EYES ( NOT JUST IN THE YOUNGSTERS) ONE LEVEL BITE.

I SHOULD LIKE TO THANK THE EXHIBITORS FOR THEIR LOVELY ENTRY AND ALSO THEIR ENTHUSIASM AT RINGSIDE. SO NICE TO SEE.
