We're Getting Better at this Stacking Thing ;)
by DDRCzechFan on 05 April 2012 - 00:09
|Well, we went to the park again today, and took a minute or two to try stacking again.|
Any comments this time, seeing as my dearest hubby angled the camera MUCH better?
Yep, his legs are STILL a little camped out, in the front, but they're a little better, at least.
I also included his VERY FIRST stack pictures I took and posted a little while ago.
I welcome all comments, critques, suggestions, etc...
Thank you for your time, I also encluded a picture of him just grabbing a drink of water from the boat dock :)
First stack shots, taken at 11.5wks old

|He is very handsome I just love the bi-colors.|
Want is his pedigree?

|Thank you Vianden, as YRoT pointed out, my boy appears to be a puppy version of Cuzko. Could pass off as a twin!|
I was rather reluctant about posting his pedigree, because of the reputation his breeder has, however, Beau came to me healthy, well adjusted and structurally sound. He is everything I could've ever wanted in both a GSD and just a puppy in general. He is a pure joy to have around the house. Very vocal, good drives (but not over the top) and a total momma's boy - hahaha!
So, for the first time, I am publicly revealing his pedigree. I don't care what comments may come of it, he's a great dog, and I couldn't have asked for a better fit for me.

|Wow, wow and wow, extremely beautiful, |
Very beautiful rich pigment, dark eyes, good stop, good head size and bones, correct straight front, strong pasterns, correct tight feet, excellent short dark nails and round toes, very beautiful topline, high withers, a bit short croup but beautiful lay and a nice tail set position and excellent straight tail, lacks in rear angulation, Good length of front upper arm but steep, nice shoulder blade lay. Allover a very beautiful bi-color male of nice expression.
In the first few pictures the wood floor is sloping not level which added a bit to his topline slope. In the end " WOW"

|Thank you Ibrahim!|
Nick (husband) did his best to keep the camera even, and I hope we'll improve the stacks furthur in coming weeks/months/years. I hope to get into showing with him, I think he will do fairly well, assuming I get a mentor, as it's been a while since I led anything around a showring.
I wish I had photoshop experience to remove my large backside from the pictures - hahaha. I think I'm going to do training sessons daily focusing on stacking. I already do daily obedience with him and he is coming along just great.
He learned, "Come", "Sit", "Stay", "Heel", and "Leave It". Still working on "Down", "Down Stay" and other basic obedience commands. I plan on doing Therapy with him, when he is old enough to do so.
I have always believed that things in life are what you make of them. Beau may come from "humble" beginnings, but it doesn't mean he won't "go out with a flash!"

|Ibrahim, you are so sweet! You are truly gifted being able to remove people from the background! It doesn't even look all that noticable, either!|
Thank you Ibrahim! Thank you for taking the time to do it!
GSDGuy08 - Well, ya know, you could always send your ugly little munchkin up here LMAO, seriously though, one day, we WILL have to get our kids together. I'd love to see them interact. Two brothers, seperated for a while. Ya know, hubby's a truck driver, it COULD happen sooner than ya think!

|He is absolutely gorgeous! Yep, the stacking is coming along LOL, but he looks great anyhow.|
Ibrahim - very artistic !!
by DDRCzechFan on 05 April 2012 - 22:24
|Thank you Abby Normal, he's a pleasure to interact with, very vocal, handler sensitive but so obedient and willing to learn no corrections are needed.|
Can't wait to see what he'll be looking like in a few months, when he matures. I'm sure I'll be posting all along the way.

A young dog that got a very good head and once the ears firm up,
he will have very good expression.
a lovely pup.

I will post the three pics I have of Cuzko, on the thread in Training and OBedience.... when he was brought home ...HE looks so much like yours it is scarey...
One of the pictures shows his penciling as we long awaited a BI .....every pup we have kept and had we thought MIGHt BE a BI, was merely a heavy black faced BLACK AND RED>>> nothing wrong with that.
