I was thinking about showing once I get a Golden and Rough Collie. But I might stick with UKC since I would be doing it for fun. Now I am having second thoughts.

I have to say that I think the GSD's looked better this year, but still not what I would consider "good".
I was about to say the sables hind end was awful.I mean you can't get more cow hocked than that.And one of the others was pretty weak too.Even when they are not stacked they are pretty low slung down there.

I have a feeling that if more working lines join the show ring, we'll get a new breed from the AKC lol. That's what it looks like happens to all the other "related breeds" then there will be saddleback/sable/black GSDs as seperate breeds. Like the colored and all white bull terrier...are they really seperate breeds?

No comment on the GSD, but does anyone know why the Tibetan Mastiff wasn't in the group ring. Ch. Drakyi's Golden Moment ("Midas") took BOB but I didn't see it on TSN during judging.

aren't they supposed to be working dogs?

I mean that they are shown under the "working group" and yet working lines do not do well in the show ring so they need show lines. Something seems wrong here to me.

ok...but isn't my point still valid? Herding is work. Just seems like the original purpose of the breed has been subverted. And I don't only have this complaint with gsds.

How do you believe that the original purpose of the breed has been "subverted"?
