It was a great pleasure to judge one of my favourite breeds and thank you for the lovely entry. The weather was perfect for the dogs but a little chilly for us mere humans. We had a good size ring so everyone could show their movement to best advantage. Type seems to be improving since I first became interested in the breed quite a few years ago. Head shape and especially ear carriage needs improving and I did find a few with upright shoulders and short upper arm. Round eyes are also spoiling the expression. I did find that temperaments were as usual lovely and friendly and hind movement was quite good with driving action from the hocks.

Open Dog (3 entries, 1 absent)
|1st||Harding & Whitehill NAROD THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM|
His countless wins in the breed speak for themselves. I cannot add to his many tributes only to say that he still looks so good standing and moving. He can still teach the youngsters how to move with flowing rhythmic movement and he did the breed proud in the Group ring. BD and BOB.
|2nd||Roffey NAROD JOKER JACK|
7 years old. Still enjoying the show ring. Moving well and retaining topline.

A difficult class to judge all exhibits were of a different type so could change places many times. Winner won with her breed type and best head and ear carriage. Moved well although she was carrying too much weight due to a false pregnancy.
