Some of you may know us, we're the proud owners of 2 GSDs, one black and tanned Kailash and one blue Enakai. We live at the moment in France and we wanted to share our pics with french owners of GSDs.

We found a site where we introduced our babies, starting with Enakai, and Oh My God, i've never seen so many angry GSD owners in all my life

We have been attacked very aggressively that Enakai is not a german shepherd, that her pedigree given by the UK kennel club is pointless and doesn't mean anything and more specifically that the American Kennel Cub, Canadian Kennel Club and UK kennel club are even more PSEUDO SWEARING since they don't recognize the international standard!!

And even some members said about our dog that she was ugly and we should be ashamed, etc and the moderators didn't say anything (actually one of them said she was ugly) and when i said it's not right to say such a thing about puppies, i've been told by the moderators to accept criticism then finally blocked our post saying that blue GSDs is a shame and people need to be careful about people like me lying, calling our blue a GSD!!


I remember when I introduced my girl to you guys, I've been well welcomed, no one insulted my puppie and even if some of you didn't agree with blues, which i can understand, then none of you said to me that my girl is NOT a GSD and her pedigree is PSEUDO SWEARING or even that she is ugly!

So can anyone tell me if it's true that the American Kennel Club and Canadian and UK kennel club are actually not recognizing the FCI (international standards)??

PS: by far, this forum is the best GSD forum in the world!!!
Until I read this post I had never heard of a blue gsd and I've just spent some time researching them and omg I'm in love, your Enakai is absolutely gorgeous anyone who says she's ugly needs their head testing, the colour is amazing I've talked to hardcore gsd owners in the past and been told my Jax isn't show worthy because his back legs don't slope, his one ear flops down and even that he has flex of white in him, but I didn't have him to show, I had him to cuddle and go on long walks and to be a companion. They weren't interested.

Kayos and Havoc I used to live in Germany when I was in the Army. We traveled to France several times. We found a lovely restaurant just across the border from the Rheinland-Pfalz area. We loved it! The people were friendly and kind. Went to Paris and the Parisians were very rude. I was nearly pushed off a sidewalk into a vehicle by a lady that wanted by me. But you knwo that can happen in New York too.

I think your dogs are lovely.

Ha, we don't want it either.

Q: How do you get a French waiter's attention?
A: Start ordering in German.

Q: Why did the French celebrate their World Cup Championship in 2000 so wildly?

A: It was their first time they won anything without the help of the U.S.

Q: How did the French react to German reunification?

A: They put up speed bumps at the borders to slow down the Panzers.

Q: What did the French waiter say to the German General?

A: Table for 100,000 sir?

Next time there's a war in Europe, the loser has to keep France.

Tell a few of these on their forum.

I bet there are french people that love americans. After all, they gave us the french fry.

Yes sure but here they're not only offending my dog, they're also denying the fact that she's a pure-bred GSD when she is (she has a pedigree from the UK kennel club) and either her color fits the standard or not, i cannot let this being said on a GSD forum.

Mickeynads Why i do care about what has been said is because I think you can judge people by their actions, their opinions but you can't judge a dog just by the way it looks? I mean Enakai has done nothing than being a happy dog and it will always upset me if someone says bad things about her.

Also thinking of all those blue and white pups that are still being killed over here because of their color really makes me so sad. So i think it's the whole lot that really got me. I might be a bit too much sensitive or idealist but because we have the possibility to stay anonymous on the internet doesn't give anyone the right to be so rude with someone they don't know. I don't think in real life, in a grocery shop or anywhere else, people would insult anyone else that easily. That's my opinion.

As for the french in general, I don't really feel offended by what is being said here. There was a report on our national channel stating that french were the most arrogant in Europe from tourists point of view lol This might be coming from the fact that French are also the most depressed in Europe according to another study.
Also we have a culture that makes french in general quite strict about standards, not only in dogs, but also in jobs, the way you dress, etc. I see that almost everyday with my fiancÚ who can't speak french that well and he always gets asked what's the point of staying in France if he can't even speak the language

Having said that, fortunately not all of us are like that, like in every countries, i guess there are good and bad ones. I personally love America, that much that we're planning on moving there after my PhD.

Now my point was to say that you can be into GSD standards but can't just reject all the dogs that are not fitting your view of standards.

Saying the blue's aren't even present in the GSD lines

Thank you very much Tattersail, that's exactly that They refused to accept she was a GSD. As Lee said, she might have a disqualifying colour but doesn't mean she's not a pure-bred GSD.
