This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.

What a privilege to judge this wonderful entry and thank you to all exhibitors who brought their dogs under me. I love this breed so much and was delighted that the temperaments were all fabulous and presentation and handling was of a very high quality. Thank my to stewards, Dorothy McIntyre and John Willett, who stepped in at last minute and carried out their duties with professionalism and humour.
