Listen, I highly respect your knowledge but it is way over my head and maybe some other people's too if you discuss dogs we will be looking at in the ring as if they are being seen with x ray vision.
Whether or not there is cartilage or bone matters not to me when I'm looking at a dog.
Sorry, I'm just a high school graduate layman dog breeder.
And to defend myself, I'm not inventing anything to suit my point of view.
The points I post are based on diagrams like the one I linked before, terminology from sources such as the AKC Complete Dog Book and other reference material. I have gone over my posts over again and don't see where you think I'm being so misleading.
