Minnie from Minnie-sota at One

"Show" side

"You said that I didn't have to be a show dog."

Lovely tail

"Off" side

I find it somewhat amusing that Huxley produced half-masks (or more) when he has been bred to bitches with smaller amounts of white on the head and lovely markings when bred to half-mask Clem. Luck of the draw.

I’m pleased over-all with how Minnie has grown on, though I would almost have thought that she was Wally’s daughter rather than Huxley’s. She is very like her grandpa Carbon in type. Good tail, nice body (with a little extra plushness right now which will be worked on). Clean coming and going, but could use a longer upper arm for more sidegait.

I didn’t have her stacked perfectly, but she did better with me holding her collar and Missy on my camera than she did the other way around.

The report is that she is doing very well in Rally and will be starting on sheep soon.

    I agree that she almost looks like a Wally girl than a Huxley girl. She is a very pretty little lady!

    Dang that half mask! I agree I think she looks a lot like Carbon in type. her off side really changes her head in appearance when there is color around the eye.

    She’s looking really lovely!

    Sometime when I don’t have anything to do want to be doing the things that I am supposed to be doing it would be fun to play with photoshop and see what Minnie would like like with color on both sides of her face.

    I like!! How do you figure out upper arm, is it a measurement you take, or just eyeball it?

    Yup, she looks like a Wally puppy, but that head is definitely from Huxley. Reminds me of Savannah’s head, including the “do I really have to do this” look.

  6. Thanks for looking at her yesterday Carolyn. It’s great to get an opinion on her that isn’t our “slighty” prejudice one. 🙂 Glenn and I just love this little girl and feel so blessed for Garrett to have entrusted her to us.
