MIDLAND COUNTIES CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW 27th October 2018

Thank you to Midland Counties for the invitation to judge at this show, also to my stewards who made the day run smoothly and the exhibitors for allowing me to examine their dogs.
I thought overall the breed is heading in the right direction, temperaments were good. I noticed small teeth in a few dogs and also dirty teeth in many, bad front movement seems common.
