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
