I thought this was a good quality entry, most being of good type. Temperaments were excellent. A few were short of coat, which I largely ignored, and quite a few absent for that same reason I gather. On this entry the breed is in good shape. The breed scored Group 3 in puppy, veteran and special beginners – well done to all.
