Connecting the dots

Sometimes it can be difficult to see where to place the lines on a picture of a dog. I snatched the skeleton photo off the Illustrated Standard for assistance. The triangle should be formed by 1) the highest point of the shoulder blade, 2) the point in front where the shoulder and upper arm connect, and 3) the point of the elbow.

    Inca’s on a diet and thinks she will soon look just like this. Seriously, this is a truly helpful way to visualize the preferred angles.

    Hey, Carolyn, maybe you could add the rear angles and how we get a balanced dog?? 🙂 I was trying to figure out how to go about explaining movement, which is SOOO important to me, but haven’t figured out a good visual yet, other then taking a bunch of videos, which haven’t tried in my camera yet. Someone want to help??
