I love Mira, have I told you lately? :::swoon::

Here is Arnold:


Feel better Boo? Ozzy?



(this looks better)


Humorously he's eight and truckin' pretty well considering the hell we've put that body through. I would however not recommend it in retrospect.

Boo is very cute, and yes, very straight in the rear. I agree that if you keep her weight good, and don't overdo anything, it probably won't matter.

I learned a lot from that site, it explains a lot of details. Pitties, but it applies to other breeds too.
I had a lot of fun with that, if I knew how to stack my dog and better where to put the lines it would probably be even more fun... Squashie is kind of a mess in some areas and looks good in other areas. Also, he is struggling with those last few pounds.

I'm sorry that I don't have much to offer as far as Boo or Cohen or any of the other dogs, but I like this thread! And especially the pictures with the lines on them.

I've tried to learn, but I still suck at pointing out structure/conformation flaws and assets in my own dogs sometimes (nevermind other peoples' dogs). I know I think Ripley is straight in the rear and I don't like Dance's hocks and I don't care for any of my adult dogs' toplines, but that's about as far as it goes haha. The front confuses me more. Both Dobermans have weak pasterns, but I can't tell you a thing about shoulder angulation or anything. I know what I think looks pretty and functional (or not) when I look at a dog, but that's about as far as it goes. I really want to learn more and understand the more technical terms better.

Oh I put the point of his knee WAY too high, didn't I? And shoulder blade too far back on his back. Whoops. ANATOMY FTW.

I'm an acupuncturist, I'm used to FEELING for landmarks, not VISUALIZING them.

Can you go into more detail (if you have time)? I'm finding this thread really fascinating!

I should try to find some stacked pics of Web and Kim, especially Web... Webby is creatively structured
