WINNERS DOG -
Grandgables Let"s Show Off —As an athlete hopes to
peak for the Olympics this dog peaked for the National.  He has beautiful
head planes, correct corners, proper depth of skull, good finish of
muzzle/underjaw and beautiful ears placed perfectly into the rough. His eye
is of correct size, not too small, and set properly into the skull. All
of the above combine to give an exemplary Sheltie expression.  He has a
delightful temperament which is inquisitive, intelligent and all male. He not
only “asked” to be Winners Dog he almost demanded it! As a matter of fact
he grabbed the ribbon out of my hand when I awarded it to him.

He doesn't have a big white collar, which one doesn't  notice, as his neck is
the proper length,beautifully arched and well placed into the shoulder. He
has a strong short level back and his overall length as measured from
Withers to the Ischium as compared to the Shoulder Joint to Ischium
presented superior balance resulting in an outstanding outline. He has a
long tail that is placed properly into the croup. His correct Femur, Tibia and
well let down Metatarsus provided him with a strong correct rear. His front
was correct with his Withers to shoulder joint to Elbow joint forming a 45-
degree angle and his elbow joint is equidistant from the ground and from the
withers. The combination of this correct structure supported unrestricted
movement. This dog could Herd sheep all day long and walk into the
confirmation ring at the end of the day ready to compete.
April 2007 Dallas was shown by Tracy Tuff  under Judge Daniel Wheatcroft at
the 2007 ASSA Nationals in Albany , Oregon Taking Winners Dog.  Below is
