By now it is no secret that Baxi is a very handsome kelpie. This
Sunday we went to Hässleholm, Sweden, and earned our second Nordic CAC (of three). In addition we earned a Swedish CAC and Baxi became a Swedish Show Champion - on top of all his other show titles, including International Show Champion.
Baxi was handled by our good friend Eva to his very best. What would I do without her?!
Rarely do judges speak with the handlers/owners
of a dog, but this time was different. She not only emphasised his excellent looks, but also asked about his background, genetically as well as working.
Here's Baxi's critique (translated
- original in Swedish follows):
6 yrs. Well-moving. Typical. Slightly lengthy male with excellent proportions. Well-shaped head. Well-shaped eyes. Good bite, teeth, ear shape. Excellent
forechest, chest, bone structure, angulations and movement.
