I was wondering if you all could critique my baby for me
He's 6.5 months old in this picture...and it's the first one of him I have been able to get where I didnt have to hold him in place.
And because I always like to know how wrong I am I thought I would let you all know what I see...and then tell me what I am seeing right and wrong.
What I like the most about him is his head, his movement and his rear end. He's got great expression and I just adore his back skull and ear placement...I think he is going to have a very manly head when he gets older. Good pasterns, good angulation in the rear, and when he moves he trucks
- very forward movement, usually at the end of the leash usuing alot of rear end to propell him forwad...it's just a very powerful trot. His rear legs are very straight as well...wheras Ruby is just now starting to loose the narrowness in her chest and rear end (maturity is coming! Slowly...but surely!)
What I dont like is his pigment (not snow nose, but it could be better), his shoulder is a little upriught, his topline isnt as good as Ruby's and his tail set is a little low.
His schnoz is a little long right now...he's got that kind of wonky growth spurt where things are growing and the rest hasnt caught up O.o
He's a cool little dude though - lots and lots of drive, he should do real well in SchH
Here's a recent pic (but not a great one) of Ruby...she's in heat so she's looking a little blah and a little nekkid, but because of a recent gromming job her topline is pretty obvious
I usually like to look them up for comparison because I see alot of what she has a problem with he improves on and vice versa.
