If it were jumping, wouldn't both feet be on the ground, and both paws be off the ground?
Its a moment in the stride cycle.

That and it's cute
Well, I guess my dog does not move properly. I have never seen him hold his paw up like a stop sign.

I think she's looking at the back feet....should they be off the ground or pushing off with the toes.

Well we are being very critical of the sculpture now, lol

I think the dog is in flight.. So There is a point of contact with front foot...

The back feet are not in contact with ground...
Gut I guess the sculpture cant fly...

I think your artwork is beautiful, and I love the models you did of the GSD. But, I'm not a big fan of the running position you did. If you would to do one next time of a German Shepherd either standing, sitting, or just in a stack position, I would totally buy one!

I take a gazillion pictures of my dogs. I recognized the position right away.

I really do take a gazillion pictures. It's sad, really. I have no life.
