Lovely quality pepper with an excellent forehand, feminine head with liquid expressive eyes, good bone legs and feet, shapely long body, well muscled quarters. In very good coat for age, and just right in her proportions all round. Defied all attempts by her handler to perform on the move. Litter sister to MPD and as promising too.
