And here’s Miss S frolicking about on today’s early morning walk. The slide show is a little self-indulgent, but you get a good look at what a pure bred German German Shepherd (as opposed to American German Shepherd) looks like: notice the straight back (American Sheps have been bred to have sloping rears, which is why they are prone to dysplasia).
Her twin-like sister won all kinds of Schutzhund competitions in Germany, but I decided to let Miss S grow up to be a beach-going, footloose and fancy-free gal.
Too bad the rising sun behind her made Miss S’s face look so dark in these pics. I’ll just have to take more, one of these days!
At any rate, I’ve just added a late-breaking bonus video to this post package. Enjoy!
