Mirada - 19 Months

Two days shy of 19 months, actually

There are five pictures...three where I've stacked her, a head shot, and another where she's freestacked

I think should could use a longer upper arm, and while I like her shoulder layback, the set seems a bit pushed forward to me.

Do not have the knowledge to critique, just wanted to say she is a very pretty girl.

Pretty girl. Slight over-bite? or small lower jaw?
Long dog, could be a tad over-weight or look that way
because she is so looooong.
Not much angulation up front.
I am not even close to being an expert.
Very pretty dog.

Bite is perfect, lower jaw is weak. I've never liked her head...not strong enough. She's definitely not overweight (ribs are easily seen and felt) She is fresh from a bath though, so the "poof" could make her look chunky, so I see where you're coming from there.

Her ribcage has also sprung, so she is not a wispy looking adolescent anymore.

You're also right that she's a tad too long. You're the first one to tell me she's not got a lot of angulation in the shoulder though.

When you hand stack her, her front legs are under her withers and that makes her lean over in front. When she free stacks, her front legs are in front of her withers, making her look straighter in the front.

What Andaka said.
I just calls em as I sees em.
Abby's rib cage never sprung (much). Was hoping for more.

She's a pretty girl! I like her shoulder better in the free stacked photo on the bottom. I also like her depth of chest. She's a tiny bit long, as already mentioned, but I don't think that's as bad of a fault IMO. Her expression is lovely, too. Personally, I'd prefer a bit more substance to her head. Not much, just a tad. Her legs should spread a bit more and strengthen as she continues to mature. I'm not much of an expert, but this is what I see.

Her actual skull I very much like. That is nicely proportioned...but that weak muzzle...not such a fan >.<

I also love her depth of chest, and her forechest is fabulous <3

Love her markings/coloring.
The weak lower jaw just makes her look more 'girlish' and
if you are not showing her you have a very pretty 'girl' there.
