Steel and Flames





Have to share the photos I took of Kohlman today. I had him and Butters all groomed up intending to get photos of them and when I went outside it had began to snow. So I ended up putting them on the front porch for the photos. They turned out very nice.

Kohlman is an easy dog to shoot. He baits and holds a pose so well. I think he got that from his sire,, CH. Denian Deuce's are Wild, the dog I showed last year to number 5 sheltie for owner Karen Ferraro. Deuce would bait and hold his stack till given a signal and sometimes hold it so long that he would finally just bark at me as if to say,, "come on,, give it up!". What a show dog.
Kohlman has that certain something about him. He is as stunning in person as in his photos. On top of that, he has a remarkable temperament. Pretty much bomb proof. What a dog. I can't wait to show him.
He was awarded best expression and best outline and best rear at the Tom Coen virtues match this last August. He is pictured here at 13 months old. I would say he is coat factored!!
Enjoy the photos of Akadia Chandelle Steel and Flames.
