Thank you to all of the exhibitors for the sporting manner in which you accepted my decisions. I have admired your breed since I first judged them in the Import Register classes. I was pleased with the overall quality on show here today. Movement was, on the whole very good, temperaments were excellent and all of the dogs were clean and in good condition.
