Critique my dog - before and after 9 months

I've had Jerry for 9 months now and I can see a huge difference in him - he's gained about 10 pounds, his coat is shiny, and he has more muscle. I've also gotten slightly better at getting stacked pictures.

Can you tell a difference? Conformation critique welcome, too, of course!

First attemp at stacking 9 months ago:



Just now (still not perfect, but I was doing it alone and this is the first time I've tried in months):









Not a stack, but I just like this one.

Adding a couple more. You can see how skinny and lacking in muscle tone he was when we first got him:



I think his neck looks a little less weird in this shot from today. It looks really thin in all the pictures, I guess because of the angle.

Nice all around. Losing pigment. Nice addition of muscle. I am no expert, just my opinion that he is a very nicely structured male.

Thanks, guys! I love seeing him put on muscle. I really notice it in his stifle/back thigh and his chest; his chest used to be so wobbly when he ran.

I've noticed that he has a lot more tan in his saddle now - it seemed to really lighten up over the winter and I'm wondering if it'll get darker now that summer is coming or if it's permanent.
