Thanks, Lisa. I know I'm biased, but I love her looks. I thought she'd be more black with gold stripes, like her mother, but I love her coloring and her face and everything else :yernuts:

I don't think that any of the pups from that litter ever looked like puppies.

Leih,

For a female she is stocky, the other females I have been around are finer built. I also noticed that she has a shorter wheelbase than most. I love her faces on the front pictures, and her color is cool.

Oh...thanks for the definition! I'm very glad to hear that, as the longer backs are hell on agility dogs, and compared to her competition, she's already got quite a long back as it is.

I am going to measure my gals, just to see. In horses, the shorter backs are better too, I would think that would be better in all animals. I was looking at my girls this morning and Sadies legs already look a bit taller than Thalies. It would be interesting to see the different dimensions in them as well. When I did agility with Thalie, I couldnt keep up with her, she was so darn fast.

Oh, I'd never be able to keep up with Geyser, either. She kind of just thinks of where she wants to go and then just appears there :lol: .

Distance handling will be my salvation :mrgreen:
