Fairly balanced female that is a bit heavy. Flat withers, a bit of softness in her back, good croup that could be a hair longer. Good angulation front and rear. She has very good bone, little straight in the pasterns and I would like to see tighter feet. Good color, nice head, dark eyes, dark pigment.

Beautiful dark mask, lovely dark brown eyes, nice thick ears, thick black nails. Fantastic pigment! Flat withers, flat topline, short croup but good angle. Nice rear angulation. Needs a better front. Shorter front combined with her flat withers will probably make her drop down in front with butt high as she gaits. Would like to see her reach. Substantial bone and frame. Nice moderate coat - not too tight. Chest drops low, but it could just be the extra weight.

Sorry to put this bluntly, but she is too fat. She could easily take off 10lbs of fat and put on 5lbs muscle - would make her look so much better to see some definition, ribs and tuck. She is still quite young - keep her fit and lean to avoid future joint issues. Take her hiking, start some regular cardio (running and biking) and cut down the food/treats.

Thankyou both, I agree about the weight (my partner believes she is too thin *sigh*) will decrease her daily intake.

Will try and get movement shots later today.

Failure *is* success, if you learn from it.

Hey thanks- I go to obedience with her and got the idea from there. Think she was around 5 or so months in that one .

Is the movement video (taken today) okay- or is a better video needed?

Anyone else? I have other movement shots on youtube- ?

Can you get a picture in good light of her moving? Just a couple of her gaiting. Try to get one where the opposite front and back legs are moving out at one time. Ex: front left and rear right moving out while other two legs coming in. Not a gallop but a nice gait/trot. That will be sufficient to see movement and reach. The video is too dark to make out clearly, but she does not drop down too much and her movement is fine from what I can make out.

" Needs a better front. Shorter front combined with her flat withers will probably make her drop down in front with butt high as she gaits" which you can see on the video - frame 12 -- Seems like she has a real nice disposition .
