Judge’s Critique from Mrs Janice Sparks "Darlsett" (UK)
I was delighted with the overall quality of the dogs and bitches entered and shown under me and was thrilled with my final line up of class winners of both sexes whom I felt epitomised true Cavalier quality and would hold their own anywhere in the world. My impressions overall were that Cavaliers in South Australia have become uniform in size, shape and type and close to the Breed Standard and must make for an optimistic future both in Australia and elsewhere in the world.
