Dendrin will be 11 months on the 15th, but I decided to take a few quick snapshots of her today! I am just head over heels for her, I LOVE her drive and she will be out with Boozy this summer running some HT's. I know her faults, BUT I am addicted! lol lol :laugh: Feel free to critique, her good and not-so-good points I like getting feedback. Thanks for letting me share!

She looks lovely but I have to say that she looks really overweight to me. Whenever the belly hangs lower than the ribcage they are definitely fat (except a girl that is pregnant!). My breeder friends sometimes keep puppies too fat and I can always tell by the "belly hang"!

Thanks - that is what I was thinking too. She is a lovely girl, but looks older to me than her 11 months due to the amount of heft she is carrying.

Thank you all for your posts. Yes, Dendrin has gotten a bit pudgy over the winter, her spring training will have her whittled down in no time. She will turn 11 months on the 15th, she was born March 15, 2008. Poor girl just looks at her food and poof she's a pound heavier, that and we have really slacked off of our training this winter.
I was hoping to hear a bit more, especially for you that compete in the ring about how you thought she was put together. I am guessing she is fine considering the only comments have been about her weight. ;)

Thank you again for your kind words I hope each of you have a Happy Valentines Day!
Tina and "kids"

I agree, she is a beautiful girl but definitely too pudgy. Try cutting back on her kibble and adding some green beans to fill her up. How many times a day do you feed her?

Tina I didn't realize you were looking for a conformation critique. It is hard to really see her since she is so overweight but that said I like that she is balanced and short coupled with a tail right off her back - she looks like a good sized girl too. I would like to see a better topline however that could level out with less weight (I see that a lot of dogs deposit their extra fat right over the croup and in the front). She appears to have a good front and good rear angles but I would like more thigh. She has a short neck but I believe again that is the appearance because of the weight. It's common for people to mistake weight for substance.

To me she looks far too fat, I wonder what her topline would be like if she was not overweight? I love her front but she has no neck.
