CCA 2012 Winner’s Dog - critique by Carole Stanley as published in the CCA Bulletin.

"Blu Ridge Make Way: From the first moment this dog charged into the ring he had my rapt attention.
He floated around the ring with his feet barely touching the ground. Reach and drive with no excess
expenditure of energy. He holds his type on the go. His handler gave him the room and the lead to
show off his natural confidence, pride and poise. On closer inspection his head and soft eye captured
me completely. He is masculine but elegant. I knew he was the dog to beat."

"I just love this video- thanks SO MUCH for sending it.  Alex looks so beautifully balanced and poised.  
He exemplifies what I see as a proud, confident, and athletically built dog capable of doing a day's work
and being beautiful while doing it." Nick Joines, Alex's handler
