For fun - critique this shepherd

German Shepherd Dog Club of America Online Store for Logo Items, Videos, Publications

Thought this might be interesting. What does everyone think of the GSD on the GSDCA Christmas ornament? Does this dog exemplify the standard? (If so, which one? eg AKC, FCI). What sort of activities would a dog with this structure be best suited for? What structural traits does he possess that might be detrimental in terms of speed, athleticism, and ability to leap over tall buildings in a single bound? What structural traits does he possess which are beneficial in a working context?

The dog looks ASL in my opinion. I would think that agility or herding may be suitable for this dog. Personally, I don't think this dog would be very suiybable for working.

Just for fun, let's bash the show lines.

Tomorrow, we can bash the working lines.

We don't even need to use real dogs. Let's use some artists depiction of a German Shepherd.

I have a bajillion GSD figurines we can bash if we get bored.

And then we can start on my GSD t-shirts. And then we can do the calendar.

I have a little stuffed guy that sways back and forth and sings some Stevie Wonder Christmas tune we can bash if you like. I can tell its a GSD puppy, but it certainly wouldn't be put up at any dog show.

Maybe ya'all have run out of putting up pictures of awesome dogs working, so you need to spend your time bashing other lines.

I feel sorry for you.

It's a pretend dog. How can a person critique a pretend dog?

Don't worry. We're just pretending to critique it.

Thank you, Sue. My thoughts exactly.
Hey, if you guys want, I can post a photo of my AKC Grand Champion pointed bitch and everyone can critique her. Should be lots of fun. Not.

Seriously, can we just lay off the show lines?

well actually the illustration for the GSDC of A is being changed from an extreme to a more 1970's balanced type .
What you have put before you as ideal that is what you tend to strive for . (you being the universal you)
