Samurai: Dots Connected

Lines connected point out 
back-to-front relationship.

First off, if you look at the pictures below, you can see the points on Samurai's front above have been adjusted from the points we indicated on his photo below. The yellow ones are more accurate to what is really there on the wind poofed Samurai photo we've been working on.

My initial thoughts is that he is pretty well angled, back to front, overall. He's a little steeper in the front, though he's well angled enough to provide nice extension. Angles in the back give him the ability to get his hindquarters underneath him to accelerate, jump or turn.

He has a 39 degree slope in his pelvis which is over the 30 degrees that is desirable for a performance dog. 

I was afraid he might be over-angulated in the rear, but that seems to be ok, according to Helen, and the overall balance of the angles is nice.

I'm waiting now to get input and will hopefully continue to post updates on my blog.
