"I thank the Kennel Club for the appointment and the exhibitors for providing their dogs in such excellent presentation. Due to only one steward being provided I thank my husband for yet again saving the day for me.
A great deal of extremely nice dogs lost out due to me not being prepared to accept the length, set and carriage of tails. This spoils the whole visual profile especially on the move. Heads were very good and we seem to have lost those dreadful elephant ears. Mouths were average but perfect on the browns as usual. The close movement from behind now unfortunately seems to be the norm. I hope those who did not receive the place they wanted still enjoyed their day."
