Thank you to the Officers and Committee for inviting me to judge at this well organised show and for the wonderful hospitality. Many thanks to my two super stewards for keeping things moving so efficiently and to the exhibitors for a fabulous entry of 88 dogs, the great sportsmanship and friendly atmosphere around the ring made for a very enjoyable day.

Lovely masculine head, with good pigment and correct shaped eyes set fairly well apart, good pigmentation and width and depth of chin with correct length to muzzle. Well laid shoulders and hare feet. He maintained a level top line on the move with a well carried tail. Sound and positive movement. Best Puppy Dog and Reserve Best Dog in a lovely line up.
