A most enjoyable day, and indeed a great honour to judge the breed for their first time at Crufts. A nice entry to go over, but perhaps split classes plus a puppy class would be greatly appreciated next time. Coats generally were good and the majority of dogs were spannable. They were a happy lot and seemed to be enjoying their day.  A few did seem a little overcome by all the noise and lights, with one in particular letting his lady owner down by neither settling nor moving anything like his true self. I judged to type with the standard in mind, it is the blueprint for the breed and on this point feel that both ears and eyes need to be watched.
