18th April 2015


Thank you to the exhibitors for a great entry with lots of quality dogs present. There were some
very competitive classes with always the thought of more awards, even grading would be good to
let people know, in my opinion, what I thought of their dogs in a really strong, well-represented
entry of this lovely breed. I enjoyed the sporting atmosphere and wish more success with your 
dogs. The breed is being well looked after by the breeders and I congratulate them. I had some
hard decisions for the top honours in both dog and bitch challenges, with strong junior classes
looking good for the future. Congratulations to all.
