Damn, this is a tough crew! I think it's time for me to don my tux and take a formal portrait just so you know what I look like when I'm not trying to stack puppies .

Bob, I'll have you know that after 5 knee operations, I'm happy to have legs regardless of how ugly they are .

Remember guys, pay back is a . . .

As Julie says, that freedom in the shoulder is something you don't see much these days, especially in Rotties. It seems to have come straight down the line: Grandpa Rowdy is a lovely mover with excellent reach and drive; Momma Cassidy is also a lovely mover with an even better shoulder than Rowdy; Juneau, her daughter, moves like water flows. No histrionics. Just a smooth whoosh and off she goes .

Her brother Sundance moves like a freight train! But even he has excellent reach and drive for such a large dog. We've always believed both as breeders and judges that you can tell almost everything about a dog's structure by watching it move. Juneau has excellent structure. Now, if she could just get that Championship so she could start training for Agility!

Thanks Julie. Today's weather, sunny, clear, 45 degrees at 8 am.

I know that feeling. Now if Dot will just finish she can start conditioning for that last major on the field!! REAL hard whippet conditioning. All buffed up. I get in trouble for having McGuire in too hard of condition for the ring. He just isn't as smooth looking when he is in hard condition. Though, he has been on rest, so, that is no issue now!

Its cold down there in Sunny Fl!!!!

I know the feeling Jim, I broke both legs (femurs), cut all the muscles in my upper right leg and severed my sciatic nerve in my right leg when sandwiched between 2 cars when I was 15. Thankfully I still have both and they both work, but man they look better than yours!

Hey Julie,
just found this shot of Juneau just before her eyes opened. You can see the reach and drive even this early in her development .

what a cute puppy. Makes me want to get a Rottie.

Hey Jim, didn't you used to have a shot similar to this for your avatar?

Julie,
getting ready to leave right now. Current Brooksville weather: clear and cold, 40 degrees. Brrrr.

I'll have to test my split personality this morning: Whippets and Standard Poodles are both in the ring at the same time. But I'll cover Dot for sure.

Reports later,

Jim

Yes, sir, you are correct. Juneau was my avatar before I changed it to Butthead er, Sundance .

Don't miss anything for paying clients. It is a fairly large whippet entry and she is in open bitch. If she goes WB, get a photo of Grahm telling her she is a good girl. I know Grahm will be glad she is done!!!

If she doesn't, well... there are two more days!
