I had the great pleasure of being present at the National Specialty 2022 in Oregon both as a judge and as a spectator. I had the honor of being among the three judges of the Top 20. My impression was absolutely positive as I saw good quality subjects, worthy representatives of the breed for such an important event.
On Wednesday I watched as a spectator at the National with more than 70 dogs present and I was pleased to see that the American friends are working hard and passionately to maintain the breed standard. I congratulate you on both the high level achieved in the breeding and the perfect organization of the event. They were wonderful days for me in the company of friends and their beautiful dogs. The winner of the Top 20 is a quality Spinone with breed characteristics, beautiful head, expression, fur, and excellent movement. The other subjects could also be potential winners on a par with Atlas. He was luckier.
Thanks, and congratulations.
