ALMOST a stack... LOL

Well, we TRIED! Couldn't get a free stack of this dog to save my life. But, anyway, any comments would be great! She is almost 11 months. I realize the stacking isn't great, but I think I did pretty well for it just being her and I!

Did two shots of each position in different light.

No expert critique here.
I like her topline, her head, her ear-set, her feet, her length, her rear angulation,
her pigmentation, her depth of body.
She looks a little east-west. In some pictures she looks very slightly down
on her pasterns. Forearms look a little short. But I am FAR from an expert.

Can you explain the "east-west" thing to me? As in she is too long in compared to north/south? LOL! Sorry, new to this aspect.

Also, she is short... bahah. She is only 23" at the withers, I'm hoping her legs will grow a bit more.

It's her front feet. They go out to the sides instead of being pointed forward.

She has very nice color/pigment but I think her head could be more feminine.

East-west means her paws point/face outwards, not directly to the front(msvette posted at the same time). This is Abby at 4 months. She is east-west (still).

Interesting! Thanks for that. She tends to look much thicker with her mouth open but probably could look a little more lady-like... though I like the look of a thicker shepherd so I'm okay with her looking a little bit masculine

Thanks everyone for the compliments too! She is a great dog.

I'm no expert. I'm sure others know much more than do I!!!
And I also like the look of a thicker dog, too

I like a doggy bitch. My dog's head is feminine and I wish it were more masculine, after all, she isn't going to be shown.
