At the IX Center, dog show today, herding group

No German Shepherds in group, but what was weird was that the Australian Shepherd, the Rough Collie, the Smooth Collie and the Sheltie were all blue merls. (So was the Australian Cattle Dog but you kind of expect that.)

Do you suppose that maybe the person or persons that judged Collies, etc. could have been partial to the Merle?

Well, they must've been good Specimens because the Aussie and the Sheltie took two of the group placements as well.

No GSD. There was longer coated red sable Malinois though. I thought that it looked like a cross between a malinois and a dutch shepherd because of the coat and the color, it just did not look like any malinois I ever saw. I am sitting there thinking, if they claim that is a GSD, I will walk out of here.

Was it a Malinois, or a Tervuren? Malinois and Tervs don't come in sable

They said Malinois. I saw the Tervuren and the Belgium, both were the proper colors scheme. The malinois looked like a red sable shepherd crossed with I don't know what. It did not look like a malinois. It did not have the tight coat, it was loose and heavy. The tail only came down half way between the ground and the base of the tail -- above the hock. Skinny but not extreme. Smaller than a GSD, that is why I thought may be dutch shep, but they said Malinois.

How strange....lol! Sounds like an interesting Malinois (and a very dark one)!

I talked with some people with some malinois that I saw that looked like what I think of when I think of malinois. They said theirs were rescues. They said the dog that won group probably had an undercoat, that they should have an undercoat, like the ones they had did not.
