Judge's Critique

Judge :     Mrs M Sparks

I always consider it such an honour to be ask to judge our lovely breed, firstly I would like to  thank you  all for entering and allowing me to go over your beautiful dogs and not to forget the dogs for all the waggy tails and kisses and to you for so graciously excepting my placings, I found all dogs to be happy , outgoing and of good temperament, unfortunately some coats were suffering from dallie rash and I noticed a lot of high tails which really does spoil and detract from the outline of this lovely breed, but on the whole the breed is looking sound. I was very pleased with all my winners and some of my placings were very close and could change position on another day .  I was delighted when my BOB was awarded Group 2.   I had a really lovely day judging at Bath and for that I thank you all.
