So…how do you know what kind of head and body your pup will have?
       And how do they look as they are growing up?  A picture is worth a thousand words:

Im going to start with Lamby because I have a lot of photos of her up to 1 year of age.

Lamby is a Harley Sr. daughter (Chesty, my new sire, is her full brother) and she was a somewhat leggy pup…remember, these photos weren’t picked for cuteness, they are to show specifics in head and body morphing.

At 1 year Lamby has her adult shape but still hasn’t developed her head and chest to maximum width…

That gradually happens from year 1 to year 2…she ended up a with a gorgeous feminine head and very wide chest.

I hope to get a few photos of her as a 2 year old soon…watch for posting

Tootsie is very short backed, flat faced and barrel chested

This is Rosie…she was very long and narrow nosed with virtually no wrinkle as a pup.  She was also a long-legged and narrow puppy…Rosie, at 2, remains very athletic and still jogs 2 miles a day with her owner:
