I've been trying to get her to lift her head and keep her neck straight, but right now we'll take what we can get. LOL. She looks thinner in the second picture, but she's actually gained weight, so I think it's the lighting.
Is she too far stretched?

Yes, she is over stretched. Have someone just hold a toy or treat and don't try to draw the head out or up. Let her carry it naturally. Adjust the height of the lure to get the look you are after.

How old? OK withers, good topline, croup is slightly steep and could be a bit longer, but it is in proportion to her body. Sufficient angulation in front, her upper arm should be longer. Very good angulation behind. Good pasterns though she toes out slightly. Her feet could be tighter. Her weight looks really good and she has extremely dark color and pigment. She looks to be going into the gangly teenage stage.

Her coloring reminds me a lot of Ember, she was really dark with a lighter neck/eye patches too.

I still can't believe she's two... XD She looks so puppy-ish. Pretty girl though, I love the dark sables. : )

We've gotten Zee enrolled for DogSports training beginning the end of the month. I'm excited!! I've got high hopes that she'll be a great dog for our farm!
