  Good to see so many different exhibitors showing this breed here. Since the last time I judged proportions seem better, less short legs, and fronts seem to have improved, or maybe those entered reflected what I said last time. However, heads and ears are not as good as previously and are an essential part of breed type. So now get the heads back and keep the fronts and proportions!
