AOTEAROA  EMRYS CHADWICK "Chad" at 9 months, Mati's son sired by Can.Ch. Aotearoa Manuka 2nd  

First Senior Puppy Dogs, regular and sweepstakes classes. IWCC Quebec Regional Specialty May 29, 2004 

Judges' critiques: "Lovely wheaten brindle of 9 months old, with a pleasing head and expression, nicely folded ears, good forechest, lovely outline and curvy rear. Correct rise over loin, moved out and used all he had while moving round the ring."   Puppy Sweepstakes breeder / judge Emma Ross.

"Light brindle 9 months old, lovely head with hardly any stop and a nice rose ear. Good length to height ratio, long ribcage with correct tuck-up. Strong rear, hocks well let down. Good confirmation resulting in correct movement." 
Specialty  breeder / judge Ika Peiler.

 

Chad's Head from a different angle

Mati winning the AOTEAROA  Trophy for Best Head  under Emma Ross.  I think Chad would have given her a run for it if I'd had him entered.

A real thrill to win my own trophy, which I offer at both the IWCC National and Quebec Regional Specialties to emphasize the importance of typical heads

as a distinguishing feature of the breed.  Also most rewarding to be able to be able to prove I can practice what I preach.
