" The most typical, beautiful head of the show. Wonderful expression, well proportioned, superb ears. Neck is absolutely correctly set into good shoulders. Ribbed well back, good topline, and correct length of loin. Could do with a little more width through the stifle, and a touch more angulation front and rear although he is well balanced. Correct set of croup. Standing looks the part, and certainly the most stylish in this class, but would prefer a little more reach and extension on the move though he is sound as a bell all views. A lovely hound." Unfortunately the IWADV does not offer a class for Best Head, but it is gratifying to know he would have won it had there been one.
IWAGS 2008 Specialty Judge Jim Behan described Moa thus:- "An excellent young dog with a head of correct length and good strength of muzzle. He carries his lovely ear well up on the head. I like his arched neck, and it blends nicely into a shoulder that has enough angulation. Although his topline is level his croup is nicely sloped. He is a free mover, with drive form a nicely angulated rear."
It's now official ! Moa is #4 Irish Wolfhound in Canada for 2008 !!!!!
