WINDSOR, July 2009 (Janet Biddlecombe, Tanje)

Outstanding young male who I have admired since I first saw him as a puppy and his whole demeanour as he entered the ring today certainly caught my attention. Beautifully balanced head with super expression. Medium eye of good shape. Small ears used constantly. Excellent proud neck carriage which is accentuated when he tucks his chin in and looks down his nose. Balanced angulation, short hard back and good underline giving such a harmonious picture. Nice neat feet. In excellent coat and condition. Very steady mover, a little narrow in front at this stage, with beautiful side gait. Excellent temperament. Well deserved CC
