I should like to extend my sincere thanks to the Officers and Committee for inviting me to judge at this show. It was an absolute honour and privilege to Judge this breed at their Open Show it is a breed that I follow and hold dear to me. I very much appreciated the opportunity of this appointment to assess some lovely dogs.

The hospitality and friendliness extended to me throughout the day was exemplary thank you.

My gracious thanks are also extended to my stewards Bill and Julie - who provided me with help and efficiency in keeping things flowing throughout the day.

I must also extend my sincere gratitude to all exhibitors for blessing me such a lovely entry and trusting my opinion of their dogs and the reception given to all my winners. It really was a well organised and very friendly show.

1stGarton & Gower STACEARELLA FORGET ME NOT
A dog of 3 year of age, not in the best of coats, but I found him to be balanced and without exaggeration in all departments. Not one that I could refer to as ultra masculine but in no way feminine, just sound and balanced. Pleasing head and expression, dentition, correct, clean and complete, good length of neck into well placed forehand assembly. Muscular loin, stifles well bent, feet could have been tighter and nails a fraction shorter. Moved soundly and accurately.

1stBurchell & Scott TIVALAKE MAKE 'EM LAUGH JW
A dog of 4 years of age looking very mature. Of excellent quality in all areas. A very balanced and typical example of the breed. Excellent head and expression with lovely eye of correct shape and colour. Ears at times were not correctly held almost as if the dog had been distracted BUT when it mattered they were correctly held. Correct, clean and complete dentition. The strongest of necks into textbook forehand assembly. Very good width and depth to chest. Well sprung ribs with strong loin. Very good and unexaggerated hindquarters with good width of second thigh. Quality bone and excellent feet with the shortest of nails. Moved accurately both fore, aft and in side profile, showing good forward reach and drive from the rear and maintaining topline at all times in the challenge for best in show, my deciding factor was that on the day, I felt that he was carrying just of fraction too much weight over his shoulders which slightly detracted an otherwise unblemished outline. Reserve Best In Show & Best Opposite Sex.
2ndNewson TIVALAKE LET'S MISBEHAVE JW
A very well balanced dog of 2 years of age, giving away a lot of maturity against the class winner. Good overall balance presenting a good outline. Very good and true head with moderate stop, flat cheeks and good ear set. Eye of correct colour and shape, dentition correct, clean and complete, well laid shoulder and return of upper arm. Chest of good depth and width, correct rib and loin. Well made hindquarters. Moved well fore and aft and with good length of stride in profile, the tightest and neatest feet with short nails.
