Senior Citizen Critique Needed

forgive the crazy hair, we'd just gotten a bath.

*Pounce!*

"Oh, stand still. I knew that you youngin'."



Head shot... "Aren't I just gorgeous?"


These were my failed attempts at a free stack with a impatient senior.

Re: Senior Citizen Critique Needed

Is her chest too deep? She is NOT fat, far from it, but I believe it makes her look overweight.

Her breasts are also hanging low, making her look about 3"-4" thicker.

I loooooooooooooooooooooove that chest! It is something lacking in the American dogs. Justin's chest has been mistaken for fat!

Lovely bone, and I love that grizzled old face. Nice turn of stifle. Her pasterns look like the held up...maybe a little collapsed due to age.

I think she held up rather well! How old?

There's nothing more beautiful or perfect than a senior. I couldn't find fault with her if I tried. She's gorgeous!

Re: Senior Citizen Critique Needed

It's like hugging a teddy bear with her, except they don't usually rub their eye boogies on you.

Her pasterns were held better and a younger age, but have never been the best. I never bred her, my parents did... I would not have, but non of her pups had bad pasterns.

Thank you..
She is 14.

Re: Senior Citizen Critique Needed

Many senior dogs get deep in the chest so, no, her chest is not too deep. She could have a bit more length of leg, but a beautiful old girl overall. I love old dogs.
