There were many good dogs today and I was very happy with my major winners. For me the best of the entry was in the bitches. The males really need some improving. I was disappointed to see so many high tails, flagpoles, or curled over the back, completely wrong and spoils the whole outline. On the whole temperament was very good, size is still very varied as are head shapes and short muzzles.
