Actually, the bottom one was taken on June 8th, the top was taken on July 25th after putting her on a diet. I have to really watch her, Dixie will pork up very easily. I just got these off my camera, finally.
Also, the bottom one, (June) she was just starting to blow her coat.
I had Dixie looked at by a handler at about 8-10 weeks old. At the time, I really didn't know what he was talking about, but her made a comment about her front paws and how it affects her gait. Now, 2 years later I see what he means. She walk like a horse!!
