|Sales ad picture - Dec or Jan|
Very few ribs visible, but also a kind of dark picture
|Feb 5th - the day I brought him home|
|April 5th - drying after a bath |
Not at all flattering lighting or position here, really emphasizing the ribs
|April 9th |
Looking much better than only 4 days prior... think that was a lighting trick again
|May 10th |
Shot from further behind him than any other picture, making him look a bit downhill
So my attempts to be objective are a complete failure without pictures taken from the same angle with the same lighting with him standing on all 4 feet.
Lesson learned. Now that we're settled at our new place, I'm going to attempt to take monthly comparison pictures. At the same time of day, from the same angle, stood up in roughly the same position. I hesitate to call them progress pictures because I do want to try to be objective about the effects his diet, work, and other factors (massage, chiro, turnout etc) are having on him. I don't want to again assume that I am helping improve him when that may not actually be the case.
