The Red Book enters its eighth year with more photos, more content, and more history for those of us looking back from 43 years in the future.  How interesting but not surprising that the progeny earning points for their sires and dams in 1976 are now, in 1978, top producers themselves: Hawkeye, Hammer, Watson and more. The Red Book has also transitioned from analysis by the Red Book committee about each dog, to owner-provided information including a standardized questionnaire: “My dog produces or improves the following traits in his or her progeny. Please respond after each statement by using words like none, few, some, many, most.”  Each top sire and dam includes several pages of progeny photos, and frequently a photo of the sire or dam as a puppy: Zinfandel at 3 ½ months, Hammer at 13 months, Durango at 9 weeks and 9 months, Jo-San’s Charisma at 8 weeks. This is the history of our breed that exists nowhere else than our historic GSDCA Red Book!
