Did you remove the photo? I can't get it to come up no matter what I do.

rob, he is watching our neighbor in the garden. She brought him some chicken soup last week; I think he is hoping for more!

And its back. LOL Not sure why Photobucket does this to me.

Only negatives that really stand out are a flat withers and very straight pasterns. I would like to see a tighter foot, the croup could be longer.

Failure *is* success, if you learn from it.

Lisa and/or Dianerra-
I'm really curious if this is a good example of where the front bone structure is misleading based on the coat pigmentation. In this dog, it's almost as if you can see the front stand out due to the coloring of the coat. However, if that's the case, then this dog has a very straight front lacking angulation and having a short upper arm.

Now, if the coat IS misleading, then that would mean that the point where the humerus meets the scapula is much higher. I hope Dianerra doesn't mind me fiddling with her photo below. If you read the front based on the coat markings, then it would look like the bottom representation. But if you read it without the coat markings, then it might look a bit more like the top representation.



We often hear of the need to see "beyond the coat" and I suspect this is exactly such a case. Which photo correctly identifies the front structure? Her dog's coat throws me off when I try to read the front end.

thanks wildo that was educational, if YOU have this much trouble getting a handle on it then.....

so what is the problem with high pasterns??

if the dog head/neck is raised at that angle would not the withers have to flatten out???

real nice dog - i know zip about conformation - my boy and yours look like litter mates, mine is just slightly better tho...jk

Me??? Haha- I'm just a newbie trying to figure things out. So I'll continue to have trouble! hahaha

The problem with high pasterns is that they do not allow for shock absorption when the dog jumps (or rather- when the dog lands from a jump).

Personally, I don't think the withers are flat. Maybe I'm reading it wrong. I would think though that it's opposite of what you wrote. If the dog raises his head, the muscles tightening on the top of the neck (to pull up the head) should cause the withers to look more angled. It's when those muscles release, lowering the head, that I'd think the withers could look more flat.

Anyway- I'm still learning. Don't take what I say as truth! haha! That cracked me up....
