I’ve had the honour of judging this dog previously but this was some time ago, I just can’t believe he is now a veteran especially the way he moved around the ring, not exaggerated in anyway, I was pleased to award him the RCC along with Best Veteran In Breed.

Black spotted male of correct height, in lovely condition and showed to his best advantage unfortunately missed out on first position due to his rear movement.

Another dog that I have previously judged and he has many qualities but unfortunately I felt that he is starting to show his age.
