Default What is normal development

Just a quick question: when puppies are little, before 8 weeks old, (or even beyond?) is it normal for them to sometimes go thru what appears to be a bit cow-hocked rears? I ask because, at times Agnes (7 weeks) seems to be a bit this way in the rear. Breeder said it's a puppy thing and never produced a cow-hocked dog and that she will develop normally. Parents are normal, so are relatives. She gaits normal...well, puppies can hop around and move funny until they get more coordinated.

One reason we went with this breeder is her lines do have have that extreme rear or any of this going on.

Just curious.

Thanks. I can try to get a picture, but frankly, she will not stand still for a moment...always on the go!
