It was very nice to be here. Here is many nice dogs. They don't have undercoat today, and I understand why. They move quite well. Some have upright upper arm, and little bit steep croup. We have this same problem in Finland. You have nice coat texture and nice heads, many dogs need much much stop. Some dogs moved very well, but they didn't have the coat today that I wanted. The temperament is much nicer than in Finland and it's enjoyable to judge.
