Possible critique for Piper please?! :)

Hey everyone, my girl Piper who is a long stock coated, red pattern sable, is just over a yr old now and I'm wondering if I could get a few critiques on how she looks. I may end up with nothing since my threads always seem to turn up with a lot of people looking but not commenting. I think she's a beautiful dog and have compliments on her quite a bit too. But is there anything a more "trained" eye could see about her conformation that I being biased will not notice? I'll add just one pic of her at 13 weeks old the rest are all very recent..from 11 and a half months until she's turned a yr old. Thanks in advance for all your help..this is the same thread as the one in Pictures, Pictures, Pictures..I didnt know there was a critique page..silly me..

Very nicely pigmented female with a deep brown sable color. High withers, but they could blend into the back much more smoothly. The back in all of the pictures looks soft and a bit stretched. Good placement of a croup that should be longer. Good angulation front and rear. I would like to see tighter feet. In some of the photos she stands straight in front and in some others she is toeing out.

Thank you for the critique..Since shes still growing though, could her high withers even out as she grows? You would call her pigment a deep brown? I have always thought of it as a deep red..her father was a blk/red so I figured she picked the red up from him. Also will you please explain to me what her back looking soft and streched means? Is that bad? Most of the ones I've got of her she stacked herself so that could be why her back feet toed out a bit.
