BIS Manhattan 1987

I had never seen Manhattan, who took Best in Show at Westminister in 1987, in anything other than still photos before.

Here he is being gaited to victory by Jimmy Moses!

I know he's not the perfect dog conformation-wise, but he sure was a handsome boy!

Maybe Carmen would like to comment on his strengths/weaknesses?

I’m no expert but I really like him. I remember watching the Westminster show on tv- I was 14.

not bad - not ideal --- movement is loose

but - what is very important to a GSD , who by the breeds very reason to be needs to have a grip -
necessary for control of sheep if needed and for bite work -- ?

this dog has a very poor , weak lower jaw ---

can't be all fixated on side movement

did he make any impact on the "specialty" crowd ? NO

Westminster is all-breed . Specialty crowd gives a fist pump because GSD are in the public eye
generating a brief increase in interest

Other than that it was a shrug.

I saw Hatter in person. Super temperament, gorgeous dog, could have had a stronger head, but what stood out to me were his weak pasterns.



I also loved Mystique and was upset that she never won BIS at Westminster.

I loved Mystique too! I think she is still ranked the top winning show dog of all time. I like Hatter, but I agree about his pasterns.

Yes, pasterns and feet are weak (flat footed). And Carmen is right: he barely made a blip when it came to breeding. And of course, Mystique was infertile. Many people blamed Cheque drops, which were used to keep a female from coming into season when she's being campaigned for the show ring.

Many ASL dogs had/have weak heads. It is sometimes hard to tell the bitches from the dogs without checking the hind end! That's not the way things are supposed to be according to the breed standard.

My favourite ASL dog is Dallas (Kismet's Sight for Sore Eyes.) He actually got a herding degree, as well as being very successful in the show ring and at stud. He's the grandfather of my female, Star.

Yeah, well, Dallas is in a lot of pedigrees. All of mine have Dallas.

My favorite current day male is Fritz. GV Ch Wolf Creek Galaxy of Merivern. Grand Victor from the veterans class at the 2016 National. He’s a pretty cool dog. Masculine. Carly’s mother is a full sibling to Fritz.

Right, everyone has Dallas. As far as pedigrees go, having Dallas is nothing special. If someone bragged about their dog having Dallas, I'd be hard pressed to keep a straight face. If their American show line dog DIDN'T have Dallas, then I'd be duly impressed.

How are the temperaments in the Wolf Creek lines? I've heard/read stuff about a "Phoenix" but I don't know if it was Wolf Creek Phoenix of Merivern. Not enough information to know that it was that dog.

I don’t know anything about Phoenix, but Fritz has a great temperament. Carly’s dam and Carly both have that same even disposition. I know several people with Fritz “kids” and they love them. I was at ringside one time with Sage, and Fritz was rolling around on the ground, playing with Scott’s wife, lol.
