The guy died, the expert. Dr. Gardinia. He knew how the dog needed to be laid, legs spread out as far as possilbe, to get the right shot.

Sorry, but were at a 45 degree angle, not flat to the table..And there straight back, not fully extended outward..

edit: See how the leg bone touches the pelvic bone. It should be away as far as possible..

Huh?? I think the position is pretty darn good for an OFA view.

Can you provide a picture of how you think they should be positioned? I am not understanding what you are explaining.

OP. I would bet they go Good, maybe excellent, even, nice full coverage.
