Many hours have passed since the last photo record.
The profile has been built up towards the Collies top line and also much of the abdomen is in place, and the thorax out towards the keel of the chest.
Some fine tweaking has happened to the Shoulder and you can see a piece of wire resting in the place where the back leg will be.
A life sized print of a local collie helps inform this stage - a beautifully well behaved obedience trained dog...but he has more coat than Ruswarp so we shall have to find a dog closer in appearance.
JOEL is studying the video footage of Ruswarp and the skeletal structure of dogs, especially of the shoulders.
