They are beautiful! Amazing how identical they look... doubt I could tell them apart.

Thanks . If you feel comfortable critiquing, please do. While my ego likes the praise, I don't mind being reminded to try and keep my biases to a minimum.

I'm kinda hard on my own dogs when I evaluate

Since I am in no position to judge the standard to any degree, I look at GSDs and judge them based on the appeal to my set of "standards". Your pups certainly meet and exceed my personal criterion in the aesthetic department....which means nothing in the show ring but they still are beautiful.

If I had to be super critical ( and once again, I have little if any education in conformation judging )..do you think they seem a bit "leggy" in the sense of overall proportions ( mostly the pup in the larger pic) or maybe it is a function of not enough of a deep chested appearance. And of course I have to remember they are only 7 months old which completely tempers my previous rookie critique as they tend to look so "lanky" at that age. All I know is...at their particular age...they look tremendous and I hope you post pictures of them as they develop into full maturity.

More importantly, I would appreciate hearing your critique of your pups ( even though you think it might be "hard" ). If you do give your critique, I bet I will learn something from your opinions as you have oodles more experience and knowledge regarding conformation standards. Oh, one last thought...are you pleased with how they move ?

Thanks,


SuperG
