Cookie

Cookie is a 10 year old female that my dad bought from an ad in the paper by an individual when Cookie was 6 months old. I have asked about Cookie's lines before and from what I was told she's American line, one person said maybe a bit of working line too.

Re: Cookie

I'm not very good at 'critiquing' dogs, but I just wanted to reply because she looks so much like my dearly departed boy!!! She's beautiful

Funnily enough, I thought she looked more German Show line.. Maybe American Show/German Show. Does her tail always curl up at the end like that? If it does, that is what would be called a 'gay' tail. My boy had one too I believe it's a minor fault, but I think it gives them character!

Re: Cookie

I'm not a professional, but I wanted to say that Cookie is very pretty and sweet looking. She looks way younger than 10. And I love her name!

Re: Cookie

Thanks. I really enjoy her. Cookie's "breeder" was most likely a BYB and I don't support them anymore, but I wouldn't trade her for the world.
I am planning being a reputable breeder in the far future, but of Collies and Shelties instead of GSDs. GSDs are one of my favorite breeds of course.

Re: Cookie

A picture of Cookie from February.

She was pretty overweight back when this picture was taken, but she has lost weight since.

Re: Cookie

Anyone? I very much appreciate all the nice words about her, but I'd also like to hear how she fits the standard. I know she doesn't fit it all that well, but I'm curious.

Re: Cookie

I'm not an expert critiquer or anything but the way your dog is standing, it's hard to tell her body angulations without her being properly stacked. This isn't a perfect stack, but his feet are in just about the right places:

Re: Cookie

okay, i'll bite.
i wont be too technical because i'm far from qualified...

based on the first set of photos...
in my opinion her overall conformation looks good and solid but even being 10, i'd take about 10-15lbs off of her. (not just for looks, excess weight is super hard on their joints). her saddle is pretty faded, so i'd say she could have better color.
a gay tail which i dont mind at all since my female has one...
she's got a nice feminine head and expression, great teeth (esp for a 10yo) and most importantly, she looks like a happy girl and thats what you want!

trimmed her down, and get a better stacked photo - will do wonders as far as the critiques you receive.

KEYSTONE: Male: Sable: DOB: 2/11/13 55lbs of Go!!!!!
