Judge: Mr R Blomme (Belgium)
My thanks to the City of Birmingham committee for their hospitality and for having invited me to judge on this special 75th anniversary show. Many thanks to my ring stewards. Many thanks to the exhibitors, for having entered their dogs which I really have very much appreciated. I am very sorry not having been able to spend more time and being more extended in my critiques seen the late start of my judging but trying to get everyone in time for the group judging.
Only one dog and one bitch entered which is a pity as this is a great breed and I do love this breed very much. Found both were of excellent type and very good examples of the breed.

A very nice young dog of excellent type and excellent proportions. Masculine head and nice expression. Only needs a little more length in muzzle and a little deep in lip in my opinion. Excellent angulations, body and forechest. Good reach of neck with nice topline and croup with good tailset. Nice curled coat of good structure. Moving very strong, well going and coming and showing good temperament and attitude, with reach and drive when seen from the side, head high and correct tail carriage. Best dog and Best of Breed.

A very nice type with such and excellent and so beautiful very feminine head with correct proportions and expression. Nice compact body, good bone, prefer a little more angulations. She could be a little more level in topline. Nice curled coat of excellent structure. Nice temperament on the move but needs more drive from behind and rather narrow. Could be a little more regular in front movement. Best bitch .
