Condition overall was excellent with mainly super
coats. Occasional overweights but no thin dogs. Feet left something to
be desired with amazingly long nails on some. I'm not a mouth fanatic
but there were some scissor bites with five lower incisors.
Temperaments were basically OK--maybe some jitters on the table but
cheerful on the move.
