Critique from Wayne Pearson:
"Australian Bred Dog Class
Aust. Ch. Kaparla Nonebut Thebrave
A very well presented dog, shown in excellent condition, with super coat. Well balanced head, lovely expression, although would prefer slightly darker pigment.
Excellent neck into well laid shoulder and good length of upper arm. Strong bone throughout, straight forelegs and good feet. Well bodied, good depth of chest and spring of rib, excellent hindquarter angulation, strong first and second thighs and correct tail carriage. Not as animated on the move, but nevertheless demonstrated true movement with good reach and drive. Well handled."
I am immensely proud of this beautiful 'gentleman', who has all the true golden retriever characteristics and is a delightful dog to live with.
