she doesn't need improvement, she's much too nice to rearrange ..."

Look at those trunks (centre photo) of legs at 4 months! I love her bones! And no other cocker that I have seen has such a strong back as Bling-Bling! And it stays firm no matter how ...

many rounds,
I love that too. Let alone her posture ... but more than anything I love her ATTITUDE!
