Throwback?

My dog looks so much like her 'grandmother' .... what is the likelihood of that with all the other genes in the pool?

I seem unable to post pictures, but the album might count.
The picture of her grandmother looks more like her than the pictures of her.

399? You must have run out of fingers and toes.

Said it before and I'll say it again, you have a great looking dog.
Love it when people have albums.

According to my SIL whose Phd is in some type of genetics, grandparents genes usually have more of an impact then parents in the more deeply set traits. I had an article on it somewhere but it is on my old computer which is in the intensive care hard drive recovery place. So, very understandable.

I look like my grandmom and my sister looks like my other one. Neither of us look like our mom....my daughter is a mini-me. And my son resembles his fathers mother(poor kid!)

I look very much like my maternal grandmother, not so much like my mom. My sheltie is the spitting image of her grandmother, right down to the expression in her eyes.

If the forum is broken so you can't post photos, please notify the admins/Mods with exactly what's happening so we can fix it. This is an issue that won't just affect you but others....

Have you found this helpful? https://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...ures-site.html

All you have to do is right click on a photo in your album, select 'copy' and then paste in the thread you want. I have no idea which photo you want up but here's one of them...
