(Not bad!  I bet Jeff came up with this one all on his own!  LOL!  We actually have a new clue word today.  It’s a little ironic that we haven’t had it before, but it’s also very appropriate for a Jumble clue word, in that it’s kinda . . . element-ary.  Of course that word is “matter”.  Also, the jumbles for “exotic” and “prior” were new, to me.  The answer letter layout is brilliant, in my opinion.  I’d guess that, if you are not too familiar with breeds of dogs, some of you may have had some difficulty in solving this one.  But, I thought is was pretty easy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
