|Thanks so much to the Society for the invitation to judge this wonderful breed. Big thanks also to my stewards who ran the ring efficiently, and of course those who entered under me, and appreciated my placings with good grace. I had some lovely dogs to go over: all exhibits had great temperaments, were well presented and some could have swopped places on another day. There are some great puppies coming through which hopefully will stand the breed in good stead. I found there were a few exhibits out at the elbow which does have an impact on front movement. I was glad to see many dogs with the correct head to tail balance, something which for me is just as important as movement, and sets our breed apart from other Tibetan examples. Please never let us lose this breed-specific point!|
