Two beautiful males.

1. Williams/Newton’s Ch/Can Grchb/Can/Am Ch. Macduff’s Critical Acclaim (imp CAN). I have watched this dog before at ringside and was pleased that he was brought for my opinion today, the most gorgeous masculine head with melting dark eye and strong muzzle, strength in him from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail, clean, straight front with good bone and feet, lovely depth of chest and well ribbed with short, muscular loin, moved out with power and ease and pleased to award him BD & BOB, he moved well in the group to take WK4, congratulations.
