    I have 2 questions maybe you can help me:

    1) what does stiffles mean?

    2) and what does muzzle means? (I asked a lady who said it was referring to her head/ jaws/ nose area where she should have been broader.I myself thought it was referring to her whole body because she has walked with a limp for 1 months. She has only been well for 3 weeks.
    Stifle is a knee-- if a dog has good structure, it will have distinctive 'angles'.

    Muzzle refers to the nose and mouth area. Judges like a lot of cush in that area.

    Thanks a lot, that makes sence. She is a bit 'narrow'.
