My sincere thanks to The East of England officers and committee for such a well organised show. One of the best I have attended. Thanks to my stewards for their hard work and keeping the ring moving. A huge thank you to all exhibitors for such a wonderful entry! A great privilege for me to judge.
Temperaments were excellent and I was pleased to see some promising youngsters coming through.
Generally however, dark eyes are still not as prominent as they should be and there are too many exhibits ‘upright in shoulder’ with little or no angulation. High tails are also something to be aware of. Apart from a few cases of ‘Dally Rash’ which did influence some of my placings, I felt that the breed was looking in fine form.
There were several very close decisions and I was delighted with my winners and top placings.
MIN PUPPY DOG. Ent 6. (Abs1)
1st. Mr J & Mrs K McCarthy – Kilndandy Old Copper.
Good to see new puppies with such potential.
This L&W boy is so full of character. Well constructed with good rounded bone. Super bend of stifle and top line. Good shoulder angulation, thus moved with drive and maturity for one so young. One to watch out for.

Promising B&W youngster. Good construction, standing four square on tight ‘cat like’feet. Lovely head and correct ear carriage. Super dark eye. Excellent top line and tail set. Moved out well but lacked the drive of 1 to day. Should do well.
