Malcolm is one of those boys that is hard to say anything bad about. In the show ring he has exceeded all expectations with limited showing, turning the heads of judges time and again with his beautiful balance and breed type (along with an occasional happy jump or flip thrown in for style and fun). On stock, he is a talented, biddable and enthusiastic worker.  He is also proving himself as a sire of beautiful, correct, puppies with lovely personalities, strong stock instinct, and performance ability.  But it is Malcolm the family dog that I am most proud of really. His happy and confident temperament shines through in all he does. He is the ultimate “new dog tester” who brings a confident sense of balance to every situation and new pack member. He is the dog you can never have a bad day around because his joyful approach to all he does is infectious to those around him…two and four legged alike.
