Development over a year

I have a few photos of my dog and would very much like to get a critique of her development

Here she is just over 13 mnt old.

Here she is 16mnt old.

At a Show when 19mnt old.

And this is taken yesterday. 2yrs old. (sorry about the crappy photo )

Free-moving this summer.

And one where she is just standing there not stackt.
19mnt old

She has a steep shoulder and a fallen cross. We always get that on the critiques

Re: Development over a year

BTW: She is 5 weeks pregnant in the 2yr stack photo

Her breeder met her yesterday and said she never looked better.
What the crappy pic dont show is her sparkling coat and strong color (strong for a female anyway) (which is why we bothered stacking her for photos in the first place *doh*)

Re: Development over a year

She is quite square, and as you said, steep through the shoulder. I'd like to see her a little bit longer AND with a little less leg. She's long in hock, which admittedly doesn't help. I'd also like a more correct topline (she's a bit roachy over the loin). Chest is nice but a bit overdone for me. Would like tighter feet and more angulation in the pasterns.

Color is good, nice parallel planes with her head, bone matches her substance, which is always appreciated (I hate fine boned bitches, just because they're girls it doesn't mean they're frail ). Nice length of neck, decent wither, a little flat.

Her croup should be longer and a bit less steep, it throws off her tailset, which appears to be the slightest bit high (my male has the same issue).

She's a pretty thing either way
