Natalie today...and show shots

Natalie showed this weekend and took reserve both days to her breeders very beautiful Corona. Corona is 8 mos. older than Natalie and as you can see Natalie (in front) looks like a baby compared to her but we were happy with the reserve to such a lovely dog. Natalies time will come I am sure of it. In some ways I like Natalie better she has a better rear I think than the others but she has some maturing to do....

Just for some size perspective ... the first shot is of Natalie and my friends full grown flat coat... Natalie never looks big to me until I see her next to other dogs... it really puts into perspective that retrievers aren't a large breed but rather a medium breed...





Today we took some shots of her practicing her stacking and obedience as well as just some pretty shotso f her face.

First she practiced the walk around for beginner novice... she is ready for the ring if she doesn't decide that she refuses to sit like last time.... wolfhounds have their issues



AND she was not at all happy about practicing her long downs... I am pretty sure that whatever she was thinking was not polite ... One thing about natalie is that she has a very expressive face... you always know where you stand


We worked on stacking for a bit


and decided to just take some shots of her adorable face, ya just gotta love the ears

She is a beautiful dog. I love her sweet face. I have a friend who has a 16 year old Wolfhound and she's still going strong!

Way to go Natalie!! I just love the look on her face in the 4th pic, reminds me of a very cute pouting 4 yr old child

Natalie is a beautiful girl, I love her "tude" on the down stay, lol. Corona is quite stunning, will Natalie fill out and build up like her?

There are two styles of wolfhound... a more elegant type and a heavier bodied type... this is pretty common in giant breeds as you have to keep breeding back and forth between the types in order to maintain the size and not get either to small or end up with a dog so huge they can't support themselves. I am not sure where Corona fits into that... in some ways Natalie is better than corona, rear and topline particularly but Corona is 8 mos. older and that makes a huge difference in bulk and coat... Natalies chest should drop like Coronas and she should bulk up... I waited a long time for Natalie (close to two years from the time we committed to when we got a puppy) but my breeder has absolutely stunning wolfhounds so when she tells me that natalie is immature I believe her... She also told me that she was a bit worried that Natalie would beat Corona on Sunday (the handler moved her a bit faster than she was moved on Saturday) and it made a huge difference in how she stretched out. Natalies time will come... I am sure of it
