This is Willow. Please don't be the slightest bit worried about offending me :-) She is my 10 year old baby girl and has been everything that I ever wanted out of a dog. I think that I can look at her and find many faults, but I appreciate any feedback...it will help me learn and everyone else.

I was told a long time ago that her head went back to a Groenendale that was bred in the DS. Don't know if that's true or not.

Christie,
While waiting for the judge, maybe you could dig around for a nice head (&) profile shot? The thightness of the lips, the cheeks, the shape and set of the eyes, for example, are virtually impossible to see like this, and I am sure she will need to see those. ;)

Tell us about yourself: I am in New York State. Got my first DS about 14 years ago (more or less as a rescue- lost her in Nov.). After years of GSD's, and a few dogs of other breeds (Rotti/Beauceron/Ger. Shorthaired Pointer/ Yorkie and my current Jack Russell) I now have another DS, 4mo female, no name yet, tho I have a few in mind.
Also have a horse-old quarter horse mare-32.
Can't wait for all the snow to get gone! Spring is coming too slow this year!

One thing I have notice is that the breed in general has a lot of east/west fronted animals.(Front feet pointed out to the side instead of straight ahead). Also tails that are carried too high.

Welcome here Alspyce. I did notice that you had a nice write up in your profile, but would you mind posing (that?) to the introduction section on this board? And add a signature to your posts so you don't have to remember to sign every time you post? 8-)
