Its been quite a few years since I last judged this variety and I haven’t been around the ring much recently. I was pleased with the quality of the entry, bitches as always were much stronger than the males. Pleased to say none were too thin, a couple could lose some weight to advantage. I had a few over 11lbs, especially in males, and this was certainly taken into account when making placings. Only 1 bad mouth, with both lower canines inverted.
I had a student judge, my thanks to all exhibitors in their cooperation, and allowing him to go over the open entries and for allowing me to show coats on a couple of others.

Really promising pup, just raw at the moment. He has v good proportions and moves with a free stride. Masc head, dark eyes. Lengthy neck. Well laid shoulder ribs go well black. Super rear. Good coat. Not quite the confidence of the bitch pup, when he gets himself together should do really well.
