7 month hips
These are Legend's hips from yesterday, he was 1 day shy of 7 months, weighed in at 41lbs. The link will load a larger image. Very happy with the results, it's a huge sigh of relief since statistically I feel I'm overdue to have a dog with bad joints. We are clear to start beginner puppy agility.

Congrats! I'm hoping for the same result when we do our xray.....but wont be for a while. At least I have the deck stacked in my favor. Parents are good (one is excellent, the other good), the proper nutrition, and easy on the joints.

I was a little nervous, my puppy has been kind of a wild child (have to really try to keep him from jumping around, I don't encourage it) and he's had a few minor injuries like running into a person (and tearing ligaments in her knee!) and accidentally getting landed on by an adult dog, but I think like human babies they can recover from those things without major breaks or lasting damage. Also being that I own the sire, the hip and elbow production is important to me.

I'm certainly no expert but those look great to me! Congrats!

Thanks! We're not sending them in, as long as things look normal, I just wait for official ratings at 24 months. It is mainly to see whether to pursue sports and more active training or what sort of activity is/isn't appropriate as the dog ages. The vet said they looked "very good" and didn't need a specialist opinion (I like my vet, he will tell me when to get a second opinion).

I'd take those in a heartbeat! Position is good and they look fine! Congratulations!
