It's all good here, 6 months 63.5 lb. female. Training fair, working as hard as I can, for a Navy Sailor Guy, (that's a navy joke we spoke about 3 months ago).

Worked up a good morning sweat, re-hydrating with arrowhead water, looking for some love and acceptance, in this World of ammo, frauds, cons and thieve's. I think for the most part I got it covered... lol

Stay strong !!

IDK, I'm a pet person. I know there are Czech lines, West German lines, DDR lines, Swiss lines, American lines..... I guess I was just assuming there was a Fin line.

Blanketback Thank you for explaining my tail set question, Anne

I have another question, which might seem silly but it's something I've often wondered: I know the GSDs that do win might not be to the liking of some, but what are the siblings like? I'm curious about that, because my dog is SL, and he had a noticeably different shape from some of his littermates. The breeder knew which puppies she wanted to keep back specifically for showing and he wasn't shaped the same way as they were. So, I was wondering if the GSDs chosen specifically for the show ring are truly a representation of what those entire lines are producing - if that makes sense?

There's a few more you left out: Ignorance, mismatching of species, breeding for color, breeding the largest to the largest, angulation preferences, the list could continue but I love my dog, flaw's included. It's not her fault of human intervention. Let's go for a walk, it's daybreak in CA. You know how I know it's daybreak, the bird's outside my window are singing !

Yes, that would be very interesting. Ever since I started looking into purebred dogdom (which has been a very recent phenomena), I thought that the AKC was sitting on a huge untapped opportunity to monetize the data set they currently have, or could dictate receiving as part of the registration process. And, I suspect, if they were to move in that direction, they could off-set their dependence on registration fees which have, IMO, led them down the path of being an obstacle to healthy breeding programs.
