I would like to thank the committee for the invitation to judge their Championship show, my hard-working steward and the exhibitors for their entries.
I did find a number of scrambled mouths also white of eye seems to be on the increase neither of these should be encouraged, it is lovely to have a high tail but you also need a level topline. I found my dogs more of a type, the bitches were more of an any variety. Having said all that, I was delighted in my winners.
I regret to say that some aspects of the breed I found worrying, i.e. are we seeing the last of the typical broad head & type expression, also level toplines, broad deep chests. On the plus side dentition is improving, also not so many exhibits show white of eye since the last time I judged.
