Thank you, that makes me so happy to hear, especially coming from you. Because you (hopefully) know how much I value and respect your opinion and expertise!

You're the first to explain that to me This is why I love this forum. I learn in person, yes. But I also learn a ton from everyone on here. And yall don't give me dirty looks for getting it wrong or asking questions
Oh, Jackie is the BEST

She has been teaching me to "talk Shepherd" for the last 4 years and still counting. She has never lost patience with my stupid questions, never been condescending, and always has genuinely tried to help me to the best of her abilities.

When it comes to learning about conformation and structure, I really appreciate how willing people like Jackie, qbchottu, Lisa, and Carmen are to share their knowledge.

I agree! I usually don't have to ask all my questions because other members do, but I love how when I do ask questions there isn't a single person who ridicules me. At least not in good humor

Update on the pics of Koda's dad- The breeder DID respond. He sad he'll have some pics of mom, dad, and the grandparents on each side for me within a few days. So hopefully he'll stay true to his word and send some. I'll post em if he does.

Kymmey, getting it wrong helps you to get things right! It's hard when you are wrong, but it's part of learning.

So you can see what I was talking about, here are two pics of Mirada as she started going stagey.

Mirada when her rear went nuts:


And when she got wicked long and went soft:


You can also see how down she was on her pasterns. They did come up, but are weak.

I see... They look stronger in the second. But she doesn't look as stable as some of the other dogs in the thread or that I've seen.

This is so exciting! Learning I mean lol. Not her pasterns being low

Are you kidding? His coat is perfect. Maybe even a bit TOO plush.... look at that brush of a tail! I love the way a well-groomed plush coat looks, but in practical terms, a nice tight stock coat is so much easier to care for.

He looks GREAT! Perfect weight, I think.

The dog just posted is the same dog I posted on page 1 So you can see how much they change.

Even better, here's a photo I meshed together the other day.

Top photo is her at almost 3 years of age, bottom photo is her at 15 months

WOW! She looks so different! If you hadn't told me, I would have assumed it was two different dogs xD

Yup Big changes. BTW, her color is the same as it was when she was younger. She is unbathed in the top photo, and it was taken on an overcast day. The bottom photo she was fresh from a bath, and it was bright out.

:O I will never cease to be amazed by the effect of bathing, wet vs dry, and lighting.

She's a pretty girl though. Doesn't look quite as long in those two lol! I'm in LOVE with that mask
