Has anyone had a topline that looked good at 8 weeks go completely wonky and come back and be OK?

How old?
It could be musculature.  Maybe more exercise...

She is 5 months now. It is looking better now. Just not as nice as it did at 8 weeks. I think it has to do with how fast she is growing. I was just shocked when we took her ears down the first time at about 12 weeks and she was all roached. She get plenty of exercise so I do not think it is muscle related.

Oh yeah, top lines can go crazy as puppies are growing, IME worse in kibble-fed pups. They generally settle down by 12-18 months, sometimes a bit later.
