Never even consider breeding to Cyrus . Very poor protection, no expression. Very disappointed.
Where are dogs like Chacco, Fred, Ober, Marlo, and some others ?

Nevertheless , let us also keep in the forefront of our thoughts and minds : These VA GS are Sch 3 ....and they are supposed to be THE BEST representation of the GS in Show Lines and THE BEST representatives of the WORLD'S SL GS . So I lean to the viewes of Old Shat' , Apple and Gustav, in the way these dogs represent the GS as a Canine. Yes their structure is superb , but IMOp that alone does not make the dog . BOTH Structure and Performance go hand in hand and IMOp are equally significant to the total make up of any animal . Again I qualify my comments : Repeatedly I have had some of the best wl and sl the breed and the world could offer . So for me this is critque as opposed it being critism . I personally have nothing to gripe about . . And that is what these people cannot get through their biased , self serving philosophies through the decades. . IMOp , I think the word farce is accurate and quite descriptive. And I cannot begin to express how deeply , quite deeply, this saddens me having had GSs my whole entire life , going back to the late 60's to the present .
Goodness gracious I have had and I still have GS that can take bamboo hits ..and for a dog to chase a guy running away out of a blind... well even half baked dogs chase people and cars .. just saying...

My comments have no reflection on Ms. Kusnetsova and she is generous in sharing the videos and has the perfect right to enjoy and participate in the German show dog world. Centurion, you mentioned Emoryg being kind, but you are too kind in saying the VA dogs have superb structure. IMO, the conformation ideal of the high lines interferes with function, and with all the dogs being black and red, they are cookie cutter dogs. Here is a link that speaks well to what many have been saying here.
