First of all, I would like to apologise for the delay in writing and sending this report. I flew out of the country the day after judging and was away for more than six weeks, returning home with a nasty infection that still hasnâ€™t totally cleared. I enjoyed judging the breed and in some classes the quality was very high. I found quite a few of the exhibits were lacking muscle tone and so that had influence in their movement. There are also still some problems with tail carriage. Temperaments were excellent and only a few lacked the correct width of mouth.
I had some excellent exhibits. Toplines, temperaments and condition were in general ok. Fronts and tail carriage are still a problem, but I was surprised to find quite a few males that looked like females and also a number of exhibits heads and eye shapes were quite disappointing with narrow skulls, long muzzles and small eyes.
