Cause of Death:

Comments: A long backed dog. He doesn't move well behind (too close) but is sound coming to you. He is not a very brave dog. His front is quite good with well-angulated shoulders and upper arms. He has strong feet that could be a bit smaller. While he is not terribly tall, he is a large appearing dog with substantial bone. His head, while not great is not out of proportion to the rest of him. He has the most lovely eyes which his children seem to be inheriting. He is dominant and aggressive with other males. He is a noisy dog often moaning and groaning loudly when he feels he needs attention. At three years old, this dog has finally begun to look more mature with his topline much flatter and his body leaner with more muscling then it was for his first two years. Lovely brindle coloring and bright, clean white markings.

Eldorado's Halcyon (Br/W 01) and Eldorado's Habanera (Br/W 05, AKC has spelling Habawera). Not a truly consistent litter.

Akuaba's Brazen KISA (Br/W 05 OFA-Hips: Good, CERF: (01, 02)). Growth was much slower than my American bred puppies, i.e. ears standing, body maturity. Particularly nice coat colors with big white collars and texture, dark eyes and pigment. The shoulder layback was quite good so they have quite a nice smooth stride. Toplines overall were level, feet were good although some were a bit large. The two females could have used a bit more length of leg. The males had more bone and tended to appear larger than their American counterparts. Tailsets were very good on four of them. All the puppies had sweet temperaments, but were not their brave namesakes. They tended to be very cautious to new surroundings and people.

Both are very nice and sound movers. Both could be shorter in body compared to their height. Nicki is a noisy dog like his dad but he does have a wonderful temperament. He always seems intent on having a good time. Holly is a dominant to other dogs and in people prefers women to men.

Myone Zelda is shorter of leg, but has a nice brindle coat and pretty face. Her sidegait is lovely. Topline and feet are good. All puppies have sweet temperaments and were bolder than the previous litter. We attribute this to their early and extensive socialization.
