We have been scrutinizing the litter closely and have narrowed it down to two boys and two girls. The pick girl will be staying with me, and the pick male to a show home in the US. I think we have made our choices, but would love to hear what you all think, to be sure there is not something we have missed. Following are videos of the four- 2 of each puppy.

I certainly cannot judge movement - leave that to the breeders on the forum. Just wanted to say they are all beautiful puppies, but I gotta love the blacks!

Not a gait specialist, but of course I have an opinion, ha-ha! Le Bron, for the male because he has more of the "Look at me, Here I am!" attitude that is important to a show dog. I like Presley because she has a bit more spring to her gait and also recovers more quickly from "strange, new" things in her world.

They are all beautiful. It is a little hard to evaluate since they are on uneven snow and I do like to see an angle more straight on from the side - but that being said, I prefer Beckett’s movement for the males and Presley for the females. I could expound on my reasons if you want to hear them. At any rate it will be really fun to see who your keepers are!!

Sorry for the double post. I wanted others to view and cast their vote and for you to reveal your expert selections. I thought Beckett and Presley both had the “Look at me” charm.

Mfmst, Presley has really beautiful body carriage, doesn't she? And I'm still in love with Beckett's personality and his beautiful movement with powerful hindquarter drive.

Come on, we need Chinchillafuzzy, Mysticrealm, Johanna, etc. to weigh in :D

It was so much fun to watch those puppies move. Thank you, Cherie, for sharing! Selling steak and the sizzle with movement - Becks and Pres, sold me! I have a very amateur eye, but I know what I like:)

It is very generous of Cherie to share these with us. I remember years ago on the Maltese forum a breeder showed us four videos of her Malts moving and asked us how we would rank them. Then she told us how she ranked them. It was a fun learning experience.

LeBron and Presley for me. LeBron has that "look at me - wow factor" and Presley same. They are all absolutely drop dead gorgeous, but those two strut their stuff in a really nice way. I wonder how much the hair factor plays into this as well. And how much you can tell from the puppy fluff how the adult hair is going to be...

So sorry Cherie! Haven’t been on the forum been such a crazy week. But I am obviously not a super valuable input here as I haven’t evaluated puppies personally and am still learning myself. But I do find it very fun to watch puppies and look for the differences! Thanks for sharing these with us and I will try to get on later and re watch them and add further comments!

Qualifications to comment: none really. However, I do love to watch a beautifully moving dog. Back in the day when I was competing in agility with aussies, I spent many hours in the stands watching dogs run courses. Some dogs just have such graceful style and are a joy to watch. Others are a bit more plodding, like me. :)

Here are my picks for movement:
1. Lebron
2. Luna
3. Presley (so beautiful, I placed her third because I thought I might be influenced by color)
4. Beckett

Lovely, lovely puppies each and every one.
