his critique by Miranda Blake:
Such a beautiful young dog. He exuded class from every pore. I loved his perfect blue colouring; his top-quality head with its refinement, moulding, strong under jaw, flat skull, perfect stop, and correctly sized, placed and shaped dark eyes, giving the sweetest of expressions. He had excellent fore and aft angulation, and was in hard condition, which showed as he moved firmly yet effortlessly around the large ring. To be critical I would like a touch more length of back and a little more of him all over. He has time on his side to mature and improve even more. I was delighted to award him the Reserve CC, and was thrilled when my co-judge agreed for him to be Reserve Best of Breed.
Below his critique from WINDSOR CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW
" wow....what a start to the day, a simply gorgeously coloured blue merle of just 6 months who oozes quality, just hope he makes the size. Stunning to go over, head fits the palm like a glove, the neatest of ears, eyes and expression you would wish to be able to make to order and his shape is totally satisfying and a joy to see. On the move he shows a cadence, lightness of foot and balance which is hard to find on an adult, let alone a minor puppy. I found him totally charming and sincerely hope he continues to grow apace and gain some height. If he does he has huge potential.." judge Albert White....
and his critique from BLACKPOOL CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW
MPD (7) 1 Harvey's Wicani Waltz Of The New Moon, "gorgeous coloured merle, quality in head with lovely eye and ears on top, very correct stop, long neck and lovely front assembly, very good outline, short hocks and in excellent well presented jacket. Best mover in the class and won Best Puppy. Just hope he grows on." judge Derek Smith.....
his critique for DARLINGTON CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW
"What a treat so early in the day to be confronted by a stunning blue who shouts 'look at me' on entering the ring.When this happens it can be a bit disappointing on handling but not with this lad. Alert intelligent expression, good underjaw and rounded muzzle. Movement positive in any direction, finished the day Best Puppy. He just has to mature then watch out" judge Peter Chave.
his critique for EACA CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW 2008"headed a strong class. He stood out for his balanced proportions, clean
head lines & arched neck, level front & solid hindquarters. Would like him
with a little more height. Considered him against RCC winner" Judge Mac Shutt.
