My husband loves the floppy puppy ears, but I love the sharp pricked ears of a GSD. Especially fluffy coats and ear floofies.
The first day they are up and stay up is just super exciting. We've had ears up for 3 days now. Makes me so excited.
I'd like to try stacking her just so I can compare her to Ellie. While Ellie has beautiful (IMO) conformation, it's the straight back and straight legs of the Aulte Deutscher (sp?) and nothing like what we see in any conformation ring in America or Germany. I've never stacked her because she'd not look like 98% of GSDs.
Daisy has cow hocks like my Arabian horses did, and loose hips, her trot is very pretty in a loose and flowy way. I keep thinking if she were a horse I'd love her gait.
Love my girl, perfect or not. She's a sweet, sweet puppy who has not attempted to murder or molest any more of my chickens in the past 3 weeks. I think that lesson was learned.
There's a big fireworks display tonight 2 houses over as they close down their gazebo for the winter (NO! Not that word!) so I expect to come home to a quaking Ellie and Daisy with 2 floppy ears again. Glad 2 of my 3 horses have passed on, they were all terrified of the fireworks nuts in the neighbourhood. Used to take it as an opportunity to break out of the pasture and just leave. Pedro, not being a hotblooded Arab, is reasonably ok with it and he can only hobble around anyway.
I'm going to slip some CBD oil into Ellie tonight, hopefully that and some ASMR dog music will take the edge off. I don't want Daisy picking up Ellie's neurosis.
