Do you  really want the judges to go in the ring looking for a GSD that looks 
like the  one of 50 years ago?



Maybe we need to consider using some of the new  technology.  Why can't we do 
a video tape of the top animals, and  distribute that instead of a 
illustration?  I am not saying the new  Illustrated Standard isn't a good 
thing, but I 
have not seen it, and have to go  with what others are saying.
 
I never saw an illustrated standard before I started to learn  this breed, 
and figured out how to judge a German shepherd by looking at German  shepherds. 
 
That probably explains my judging.  I figure if someone  has to look at 
pictures to learn this breed, we need to use a picture of a judge  to show to.  
 
Education is important but only as valuable as the person  teaching.  We do 
need to know that if we are going to have an illustrated  standard, that it is 
the best that can be offered. I know how hard Lana lee has  worked on this. 
Let's see what there is and then decide what to do with  it.
