Judge George Farmer (Sangria)

I would like to thank the committee for inviting me to judge at this extremely well organised show. The atmosphere was extremely friendly, and I was made to feel very welcome by everyone present. Thank you to my able steward Mike Rowley for his professional manner and organised skills. Lastly thank you to the exhibitors, for allowing me the pleasure of judging their dogs. I have been judging this breed for many years now and my impression of this breed, which I love, is that there have been many improvements, noticeably in soundness across the board, but very much so in show temperament.
