Thank you, Cliff (:
I don't view those people as a reason to stop learning (though they sometimes do make me lose my enthusiasm for a few minutes... I bounce back fast). It usually just makes me want to learn more so that when someone else is trying to learn, I can help them and be one of the people proving that you don't have to be a snood to get involved in show

You sound exactly like I did when I was your age The people you described in your previous post are why I try so hard to be kind to those trying to learn.

Also, a snood is what you often see dogs like Cockers and Basset Hounds wearing at a show. Keeps the ears clean

LOL! I've never known that! Everyone in my family has always used it to describe snotty people Or as my mom says, "Snoody."
Too funny

I believe the term is "Snooty"! A "snood" is what you see Afghan hounds wearing around their ears. A "snoot" is on the other end of the leash.

Pimg also has nice tight feet. You can see her rear toes are held tight in the stack picture above, and in this picture below- you can see even when her weight is on them, she still holds her front feet tight, not splayed out all over:



As to faults- Pimg is flat withered, has a pronounced T11 dip (break in top line), has a short upper arm, and is very poorly pigmented.

she is a nice dog, i just had my dog mate with a female the same color and cant wait for a black and red puppy she didnt have any white, i see your dog does have some white on the chest.

Not just having a nice head or earset or even a full dark mask. I like a "strong" looking muzzle (not sure if that's the best term?) without the head being overdone (like some of the bear-heads the WGSL have now) but I like how the expression kind of balances it out, the dog looks powerful, noble, and gentle all at the same time.
Looks can be deceiving . Yes this dog was kindly and gentle - but he was a protection dog for one of Canada's publishing / media barons!!

That's what I mean. I don't think a top protection dog should look gnarly and wolfish or have a crazed expression.
