Judge : Mrs Jackie Bowns
This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.

I would like to thank Boston C S for the invite to judge and for their hospitality. My gentlemen stewards were brilliant. The breed has some stunning dogs and bitches and today I was privileged to judge such exhibits, who have both beauty and are fit. No matter how beautiful the coats are dogs still need muscle and this only comes from exercise. They need to be able to move soundly, sadly this was not the case in a few exhibits. Thank you for our entry and I wish you all well for 2017
