I would like to thank all exhibitors for their entries and to the society for inviting me to judge this prestigious show .It is five years since my last PMD judging appointment in this country and I was delighted with the standard of the exhibits. Generally a great improvement in head type with many truly lovely one piece heads and expressions derived from having correct eyes and fill. I found, without exception, temperaments to be perfect and dentition very good with only one example of a level bite. Pigmentation is also very good. All dew claws were good, well-formed and properly connected. I was also pleased to see many animals with the correct length of leg and hock. Feet could do with a little more attention as some had good feet with an excess of hair which spoilt their shape. I was a little disappointed with movement in general, accepting that it was a hot day, many dogs cannot move in a straight line and tend to crab with little drive and extension. Many dogs are too narrow in chest and lack width both coming and going. Again, thank you for your entry, it was a pleasure and honour to go over your dogs.
