This is what a show dog does before going to the show... lays around in the yard! Matthew is 11 months here and below.
Looking more and more like his grand-daddy Diesel (our boy CH Diesel of Safe Haven) in the face!! A VERY good candid shot of Matthew because it shows his BEAUTIFUL head and his AWESOME pigment!!
He found a hole under the deck and that's where he wanted to take a nap so we let him stay there. Apparently he was comfy because he stayed there for a long time, and let us take pictures without getting up!! Matthew is 10 months here and below.
Close up to show his wide muzzle, and the awesome pigment on his face and feet!!
Wide muzzle, great conformation and awesome pigment!! He is starting to look more like his grand-daddy Diesel! Matthew is 9 months here.
