    Thanks, Tatyana! Now we just need someone to go through and label some of the anatomic structures in "dog show lingo." LOL

    Yes, skimming over it quickly, most folk refer to the metatarsus as the hock (as opposed to the hock joint).
    The forechest is normally divided into the sternum and prosternum as well and some will call it keel. The anterior portion of the chest can also be called the brisket.
    The occipit is often called the back skull.
    Hmmm...anyone else? I'm sure there's more.

    There is a #15 in each picture- one on the exterior and one on the skeleton. Otherwise, it looks like they just number going around the dog.

    Croup, from my understanding, applies to the area of the topline/rump from the point of the hip back to the base of the tail. I grew up with horses, so perhaps this illustrates it a bit better? (Look at the croup only here...the rest doesn't all apply to dog conformation)

    I understand where it is supposed to be, but why on the top picture is the shoulder marked 15? Or is it just my monitor, if yes, what does it say?

    I think you were looking at #13, which I can see why it would like a 15

    Thanks for blowing that up Tatyana.... I think you confused the 15 with 13.
