Critique: 1 Haighs Satchmo Von Lowengarten Mit Leonbeck [imp]
Impressive for size and strong in body and bone, this boy has a pleasing head shape and is most definitely masculine,
dark eye and good mask,
he tends to stand a little close in front
in very good coat with a well furnished tail of the correct length. I think he will finish up a very nice dog,

1 Haigh's Satchmo Vom Lowengarten Mit Leonbeck this very handsome chap was in the best of coat conditions and his expression had that glad to be alive, go anywhere look!
He possesses a very good head for skull/muzzle ratio, the whitest of teeth in a good mouth, strong neck,
well ribbed and the smoothest of backlines over a supple loin.
Moved out steadily with such an even stride.
Judge: Mr A Wight
Nando celebrated his 5th birthday on 31st March. 12 months ago we were unsure whether he would make the day but again he surprises us with his determination to overcome his problems and his sheer joy in life.
Sadly 3 days before his brother Duke had to be put to sleep with Lymphatic cancer which is what took his father a few years ago.
Our thoughts are with Christine and her family he was a much loved family pet.<p> It was lovely of Christine to come up and see us on Friday, 24th April.
We went out for a lovely meal and she stayed overnight with us before setting off to see family in Chester.

Lukas placed 1st in PGD under judge Hedd Richards. Critique reads:
"Very pleasing outline with great strength of head of good length and correct eye. Beautifully held head on noble neck of distinctive arch. Mature through chest and corresponding strength of bone moved very well on moderately angulated limbs. Still has some maturing to do and the potential is very promising.
Thank you Hedd Richards for this wonderful critique.
