The custodians of this breed have work very hard to keep them in good health and safe, I wish them continued success. In the early days I was invited to carry out Kennel Club Good Citizen Bronze tests at fun days and the first show where the distinguished Mr Terry Thorne officiated. My thanks for your generous hospitality. Judge Janet Kay
