Judges Critique

I was thrilled to be asked to judge this show; it is always a pleasure to judge this breed. Temperaments without exception were absolutely charming, the veteran and vintage classes were a joy and demonstrate that the breed can last well into old age. I was pleased to have such good representatives of the breed to go over and some strong competition in the both the d & b challenges gave me food for thought. Movement was on the whole v good, the only thing I feel is worth watching is that in some dogs the croups seemed to fall away giving a lower tail set. Thanks again to the sporting exhibitors and hard working stewards and committee to make this a most memorable day.
