|My thanks to the officers and committee for a well run and happy show, also to my 2 excellent stewards who made my job easy with their efficient assistance. My overall impression was that a few of the dogs were carrying a little too much weight which does not help movement and that the breed as a whole is getting larger, movement on the whole was better than when I judged last however some still move too close behind and with not enough reach in front. Eyes and pigment were very good, top lines, tail set and reach of neck also good. Teeth were mixed, but as long as the jaw is broad I can forgive this. I was very pleased with the quality of the exhibits, particularly the puppies which bodes well for the breed and I was able to find what I was looking for in the breed.
