Those are great points Z.
Ultimately though I am not looking to court only expert opinions. Everyone brings their personal experiences and exposures to the table with this game.
I am also looking to challenge everyone to realize there is more common in the styles than many think. Also, that one particular trait does not necessarily belong solely to one style. You can see this in my last one where I posted a very typical American puppy who happened to be very light. Ultimately the American show line did win but it was not a landslide. Sure there are a set of traits that make a style but not just one.
Then if I start trying to define a style, it is somewhat subjective and I would influence people based on the photos I choose. Even in the American show lines there are smaller sub-styles. There can be a noticeable difference in the dogs on either coast as an example. That happens in all styles.
I promise I am not grading this.:wink2:
I am glad it is creating some thought and discussion.
