A pleasure to see well filled classes with a depth of quality. Puppy bitch with 11 made my day and bodes well for the future of the breed. Also a chilly day made warm by the wonderful atmosphere around the ring. Perhaps more breeds should take note of the evident sportsmanship in the breed. I could of had several more in the top prizes and all classes decisions came down to little niggles. I look forward to judging them again in the future.
