2 Year old Sable Critique
 
Hey! So Piper will be turning two on January 16th 2014. I would like to know what people think of her as she has been maturing. The last 6 months she has really filled out quite a bit but can definitely see it in the last yr!. Please critique overall dog conformation/structure. :)

13 months (Last Feb)

My sable looks black and tan in the right light. She looks like a very nice dog to me.

I don't have enough to critique. I will take a stab but take it is me being on the learning curve.........in some pictures the pasterns look a little down to me but not in others and not that bad if they are. Perhaps a bit too heavy after 20 months. But again, with the coat it is hard to tell. BUT understand I do not consider myself "qualified"

Thanks. She is definitely a pattern sable but I have had people question me on weather she is sable or Blk/red. Her mother was faded sable and Pipers father was lc blk/red. In looks and mostly personality she takes after her father.

She seems to get quite a bit darker in the winter than in the summer. She looks heavy but it IS all her hair. She is a ideal 84.6lbs last time I weighed her about a month or so ago, she is a big girl anyway though. Thanks for trying

She's gorgeous! I know almost nothing about critiquing, but her pasterns do look a little low. Overall she looks great!

Piper'sgrl 01-06-2014 05:35 AM

Than you very much. Her pasterns being a little low..would that effect her range of motion or what...is there anyone on here who can give me somewhat of a critique on her or am i out of luck...Do you need different pics to give me a critique

jocoyn 01-06-2014 07:32 AM

First of all, I am not really sure on the pasterns myself. It seems that way on the log picture and it may have just been from balancing on the log. Hope someone else will play in with more knowledge. I think your pictures are good. Just a matter of timing. Sometimes folks don't play in as much on the weekends.

Piper'sgrl 01-06-2014 11:42 AM

ya I figured lack of people due to the weekend. As far as her pasterns, the log pic is a fallen down tree. she does have to balance a tad on it and its not as level as ground would be but she stacks herself real nice when she is up on it! lol

MichaelE 01-06-2014 12:12 PM

She's filled out nicely. She's so beautiful too.

Sure is pretty! Reminds me of my dog Stahl; my first long coat. If you feed her with the bowl elevated it will strengthened her pasterns! Bill:)
