Good thing we had other
people with cameras planted in strategic locations! LOL! Nevertheless, I
still took some pictures right through them!
IMHO, this just proves
how ashamed these people are of what they are producing! They try to
show off their dogs - standing or sitting - on their websites, but
you won't see people in those pictures (unless they are showing off dogs
that were produced a long time ago while still in the ISSR!).
Their new progeny is hardly ever displayed with a person -why? I guess
they don't want folks to see how small they have gotten - but at this
show they foolishly allowed Michelle to enter Nico! He was the runt
puppy that she purchased from me in 2003! She even spewed forth tons of
posts on our forum complaining about the fact that he was only 7 pounds
at 8 weeks! Yet if you look at these pictures, you can clearly see that
he is bigger than any of the sliver dogs and even bigger than the Kings!
Granted, they did
manage to create some discord among the ISSR LB's back in 2004.
This ended up causing a few of our folks to drop out, but what did they
drop into? We didn't lose any of our good gene pool. Actually, I
had a litter of
Nico grandkids born in 2008 that are turning into awesome adults!
Most of the girls are already hitting (or close to) 28 inches and they
are only 9 months old! I kept three of them here (Stormy, Sheba and
Amber) while the others were sold on c/o contracts! Two of them were at
Homecoming this year and Story did her share of winning! Shawnee
will be coming to the next MAC event and I can't wait to see how big she

Shepherds at our 34th annual
Homecoming - Left - Pet quality Manny with Fred Lanting,
Right - 1 year old Nero with Sarah
Actually, now that I
think of it -- our
small MAC chapter event that was held in Drumore, PA (very close to
Lums Pond) had a much better turnout than what I saw at this "BIG"
sliver show. Anyway, I'm sure the slivers think they are on the right
path now because they assume that by breeding to Nico they may be able
to improve their size. True, but they will also lock in those funky
tails because he has that fault too! That's why we were so careful about
the bitches he would be used with. Furthermore, we selected Maggie
(pick bitch with best tail) to be bred with our REAL "old line" Shiloh
male that did not have a tail problem - or any funky tailed littermates
- and we ended up with an
awesome litter! Now we have to breed these girls to our super
giant males (with good tails) and they will produce the kind of quality
that we can all be proud of.
That's the proper way
of doing things!
The slivers are not
going to improve "their" stock by using a few (former) ISSR dogs because
they don't have ANY quality dogs to breed to! Just look at all of those
small GSD-sized happy hookers that clearly represent the "BEST" LOL they
How can they expect
just one dog (that also has the same fault) to fix their problem? IMHO-
they are just spitting in the wind!
Now that they have
already flooded their gene pool with all of those
56 GSD's they
have already lost any possible chance they may have had of getting some
From the dogs they were
showing (and don't forget they were billing this show as their BIGGEST
event of the year) - like
our Homecoming, I was amazed that they had such a small number of
dogs as well as such a variety of type!
Most of the dark dogs were either extremely fine boned, or very low
stationed - guess Rarities never bothered to read my breed standard
(that he has refused to remove from his site - can't wait to see how our
dream team is going to deal with him!). Obviously he never shared that
standard with his judges either - or maybe they wouldn't have ignored
big Nico while putting up the happy hookers.
Obviously Rarities is
not concerned with the quality of "shilohs" but only entry fees! At one
point (while those folks were standing right in front of my chair) I
walked over to the side to catch a few more shots of them and they
freaked out! John actually ran across the ring to scream profanities at
me. You can read all about it on our
Now take a look at the
pictures that I did manage to get (despite all of the blocking and
screaming attempts they went through to stop me!) Look at them honestly!
I have seen a lot of GSD's that are much bigger
than the dogs they are producing now! Just take a look at
some of the links I have in this

The Shiloh Shepherd is NOT
a LHGSD -- Please take some time to read
On my way home I was
seriously thinking about contacting the right people and working toward
getting the LHGSD recognized as a "breed" -- sort of like the White
Shepherd folks have done! It's a shame that these dogs can't be properly
shown for what they are - a variation , maybe - but there's enough of
them out there and these dogs are being produced by experienced breeders
Royal Air, etc.,
unlike the slivers that have no clue as to what they are doing, while
trying to pass off their dogs as my (Shilohs) in order to get more $$
for their pups.
a bunch of crooked, dishonest losers!

Tina Speaks on
the Important Issues Facing the Shiloh Shepherd Today!
As you can see, the
Kings look a lot more like LHGSD's and could still compete against them
- so why not allow EACH "breed" (or variation) to put forth their best
efforts? If the
slivers had to enter a REAL show against the LHGSD - the Kings - & the
ISSR Shiloh Shepherd, then I would consider it a FAIR competition!!
Let the public see that we are NOT the "same"!! There are MANY
"similar" breeds out there, and there are many variations of the same
breed -- even in the "Shepherd" world, just look at all of these
"shepherd types" -- each has its own standard, and continues to be
easily distinguished as to "type"
sliver dogs that tend to look a lot more like small Husky/Shepherd
if you notice the back of that blue shirt, it's promoting an event that
I have never heard of before, so I tried to find something about it
(hopefully some pix) on the Internet -- my
Google search came up with lots of stuff about shooting & some
Christian archives, but no pictures of this "event"???
may also want to notice that the registry "billings" start with the ISSR
-- is that another one of their attempts to deceive the public?
Obviously the ISSR had nothing to do with this "event" and all of "us"
would certainly not consider entering any of our dogs in such a foolish
fiasco!! I just thought it was another interesting point to mention,
because these folks are such
