Anna (Anais) has now made her début in the show rings. She has behaved very well, trying to go to any hound or person to say "Hello, who are you".All judges so far and all deerhound people have liked her as much as we do. Her bite has improved very well and her lower canines are going right as they shall now. Her paws are a little flat still after the tooth shedding.
As you can understand we are very glad to have her here and she is so open and confident as we hoped she would be.I have made translations of the written critics from her three shows so far. I am not sure I have the exact shade of meaning everywhere, but it is as good as I can. In all three shows she was awarded special prize and was Best In Breed Puppy.

A very promising 5 month bitch puppy. Lovely head and expression. A trace narrow bite which hopfully will grow better. Large well carried ears. Good neck and top line, good angulation in front and behind. Very well developed body with good forechest and depth. Moves a little careless in front and behind, good from side. A little flat feet, a little soft coat. Very promising.
