I'd like to thank the Club and it's members for extending me this invitation to judge the Open Show. It is an honor as an owner/breeder/exhibitor to judge my heart breed in its country of origin. The hospitality of the club was excellent, my stewards kept me on track, the atmosphere was top notch and it was great to see old friends and meet new ones. I thoroughly enjoyed my assignment and thank everyone who showed to me.


A few thoughts on the entries. Overall, I found the entry to be of excellent quality, with very few exceptions. Most of dogs presented to me were "fit for function" and in good condition. I found most of the dogs/bitches had substance without being coarse, better fronts, heads and shoulders than in the past and much more correct double coats. That being said a few were not in condition at all, lacking muscle tone and far too thin. I did notice some coats that were not up to the breed standard lacking the proper double coat this breed should have. A few dogs were not as spannable/compressible as I would have liked and some dogs were not gaiting freely (did not like the mats? New handler? being naughty?) making it difficult to assess movement and some dogs that had poor rear movement. was very pleased to see the junior handlers showing both in the junior handling class as well as the regular classes. They are the future of our sport.
