Thank you for a good Friday entry of 67 dogs. I would not want to comment on the breed as a whole based on this entry, but I was gratified to find that it contained greater uniformity in type and size than on the last occasion I judged the breed. I was particularly pleased to find that my bitch line-up was, at least in my opinion, very even in size and type. I found no major failings, although mouths remain a challenge, and all the exhibits were presented in good coat and condition. I did not encounter any small or pinched nostrils. Several dogs did not appreciate the thick, damp grass in the outside ring.
