Open Dog (2, 1)
1 Mikolazcsak Riverside Song Pledging My Love 3 year old sable dog loved this boy when I saw him in the ring, he has a nicely balanced head with the sweetest of expressions, nicely placed ears, he has a good depth of chest, well sprung ribs a good length of back, I could not assess his movement properly, as the hair on his back legs was a considerable length and made his back paws slide on the mat, such a shame as he was presented beautifully apart from these finishing touches.
