I asked for a critique a few times before but she's older now, yay.

these aren't perfect, someone mentioned that the front legs need to be under her more and she's really out of coat O: almost like a short coat right now lol, oh and sorry about the harness.

Very balanced female with an ok withers, good topline, slightly sloping croup that could be longer. Very good angulation front and rear though her upper arm should be longer. Good feet and pasterns. Very feminine head. Good pigment (black mouth, black around eyes, etc) and dark eyes, but I would like to see a bit richer color.

I no expert, but she's very beautiful! Based on my VERY novice opinion, I like how see appears a modest, non-extreme structure. I could see this girl working all day, trotting along sheep or jumping obstacles or sniffing a trail. She's a girl and looks like a girl, so that's good, and I love her legs. Particularly her back legs. Maybe it's due to the angulation (novice) but I see a lot of dogs with seemingly long back legs that don't seem to fit under them.

I'm reading Ihzcth's critique and I think I understand everything except the withers. For some reason I can't seem to wrap my head around what people mean when they talk about shoulders =/

the increased length of upper along with correct angle arm provides a provides the correct reach required for a balanced and effortless gait. it also stops them from falling on their upper arm on a fast gait.
