The Standard

pawrul1a.gif (939 bytes)

General Appearance:
The first impression of a good man is that of a strong, agile, well muscled human, alert and awake.  He is clean cut, shaven daily and with harmonious development of the brain muscle and body mass.  The man is taller than wide, hard bodied, and presents and outline of smooth lines rather than bulbous belly.  He looks substantial and not portly, giving the impression, both at rest and in motion, of muscular fitness and money, without any look of overindulgence of beer drinking or soft living.  The ideal man is stamped with a look of quality and a large savings account, difficult to define, but unmistakable when present.  Secondary sex characteristics are strongly marked, and every man give a definite impression that he is the hottest thing that has walked the earth.

Character:
The Male has a distinct personality marked by direct and blank, but not dead, expression, a masked insecurity and a certain aloofness that does not lend itself to immediate and indiscriminate commitment.  The Male must be approachable, quietly standing it's ground and showing willingness to take direction and orders without itself making them.   It is poised, but when the occasion demands, eager and less obnoxious, willing to meet overtures and itself extend them to each member of the Female it sees, and must never be less than willing to serve in it's capacity of mate, lawn mower, car fixer, appliance repair or household cleaning, whatever the circumstances may demand.  The male must not be timid, shrinking behind it's buddies or remote control; it should not be nervous, looking about or upward with anxious expression or showing nervous reactions, such as stuttering, avoiding eye contact or leaving the room during romantic movies.  Lack of confidence under any social pressures is not typical of good character.  Any of the above deficiencies in character which indicate shyness or Neanderthalism must be penalized as very serious faults, and any Male exhibiting pronounced indications of these must be excused from the house to the garage.  It must be possible for the judge to observe the wallet and to determine that both testicles are descended and in direct contact with the brain.  Any Male that attempts to lie to the judge must be disqualified.   The ideal Male is a working Male, with an incorruptible character and ability to hold a job for an extended period of time and follow the rules, which constitutes it's primary purpose.

Head:
The head is noble, cleanly chiseled, strong without coarseness, but above all not fine, and in proportion to the body.  The head of the Male is distinctly masculine.   The nose is aquiline, the lips soft and sensuous and occasionally dusted with a growth of coarser hair, to be kept neatly trimmed.  Seen from the front the forehead is only moderately visible, with hairline not receded.  Jawline is firm, and sharply defined and strongly developed, and could also be presented with a growth of clean and trimmed coarser hair
Ears:  Ears are moderately rounded, in proportion to the skull, open to suggestion and conversation and not closed to criticism nor inquiry.  The ears must not be large nor presented in such a manner as to give the impression of wings.  The left ear may be adorned with a small ring or diamond stud.  Adornment in only the right ear must be excused, showing preference for a mate of the same sex.
Eyes:  Of medium size, soft, lashed darkly and with length, set a little apart but never so close as to appear evil.  Any color is acceptable, but must show depth and understanding rather than a blank stare.  The expression is keen, intelligent and composed.  Eyes must not be prone to wandering.
Teeth:  30 in number - 16 upper and 14 lower - are strongly developed and meet in a level bite, with a slight overshot being acceptable.  Complete dentition is to be preferred.  Any missing teeth due to injury or accident must be replaced or capped, with the exception of the molars.  Full dentures are a very serious fault.

Neck:
The neck is strong and muscular, clean-cut and only moderately long, proportionate in size to the head and without loose folds of skin.  When the Male is at attention or excited, the head is raised and tendons and arteries may be seen; otherwise typical carriage of the head is straight and well above the shoulders, particularly when awake.

Forequarters:
The shoulder blades are large and not angled outwards, and softened by a good covering of muscle.  The clavicle is prominent and well defined, and the upper arm joins the shoulder assembly at about a right angle.  Both the upper arm and the forearm are well muscled.  The forearms, viewed from all sides are straight and the bone oval rather than round.  The wrists are strong and broad, and may exhibit a tan line from a watch.  Any large adornment other than a watch is to be heavily penalized.

Hands:
Hands are larger than small, palms broad and moderately thick and firm, fingers longer and well defined without heaviness in the knuckles.  Nails should be strong and kept short.  Adornment may include one ring on each of the hands, but Males exhibiting adornment or showing an obvious indentation on the third finger of the left hand should be disqualified.

Proportion:
The Male is taller than wide, with the most desirable proportion as chest 10" to 14" larger than waist which should be 32" to 34".  The desired height for Males at the top of the head is 5'10" to 6'3", but deviation from this may vary slightly without penalizing if proportioned.  The height is measured in stocking feet.

Body:
The whole structure of the body gives an impression of depth and solidity without bulkiness.
Chest:  Commencing at the clavicle, it is well filled and muscular, without undue roundness and carried well in front of the belly, with the pectoral muscles showing ahead of the upper arms in profile.
Ribs:  Well sprung and rounded, neither barrel shaped nor too flat and, carried down the sternum to the belly, which remains flat and hard.  Correct ribbing allows the elbows to move freely when the Male is in motion.  Too round causes interference and throws the elbows out; too flat causes loss of proportion and depth of upper body.   Ribbing is carried well up so that the waist is moderately long.
Abdomen:  Firmly held and not paunchy.  The bottom line is always tucked into the belt, never hanging over it.

Backline:
The shoulders are higher than and sloping into a straight back.
Back:  The back is straight, very strongly developed without sway or hunch, and only moderately long.  The desired long proportion is not derived from a long back but from overall length with relation to height, which is achieved by the neck, torso and legs, viewed from all sides.
Waist:  Viewed from the front, trim and tight.  Viewed from the side, trim and tight.
Croup:  Long and gradually sloping.  Trim and tight.

Tail:
A Male with a tail must be shown in the primate classes.

Hindquarters:
The whole assembly of the legs, when viewed from all sides, is broad, with both the upper and lower leg well muscled, forming a strong and muscular appearance.  Trim and tight.  The metacarpus, (the portion between the ankle and toes) is long, strong, and tightly articulated.  The size of the feet and hands must be proportional to the height and body, and directly correlates the size of other body appendages.

Gait:
A Male is an upright being, and it's structure has been developed to meet the requirements of its work.
General Impression:  The gait is outreaching, and seemingly without effort, smooth and rhythmic, covering the maximum amount of ground with the minimum number of steps.   At a walk it covers a great deal of ground, with long stride devoid of shuffling.   At a jog, the Male covers still more ground with even longer stride, and moves powerfully but easily, with co-ordination and balance so that the jog appears to be the steady motion of a well oiled machine.  The feet travel close to the ground on both forward reach and backward push.  In order to achieve ideal movement of this kind, there must be good muscular development and ligamentation.  The hindquarters deliver, through the back, a pleasing picture from behind.

Transmission:
The typical smooth flowing gait is maintained with regular exercise and good diet.   The ability to perform tasks of strength encompasses the entire musculature from the legs to the arms, through the back and loin.  Chores of lifting, pushing or pulling necessitate the back to remain firm, without sway, roll or hunch.  To allow for cuddling and hugging the shoulder should open to it's full extent, and the upper and lower arms strongly encircle.  Faults of gait or inability to perform chores or other duties are to be considered very serious faults.

Color:
The Male varies in color, and most colors are permissable.  Pale washed out colors are minor faults, and should be touched with a shade of tan.  A white male with a black nose or a black male with a white nose should be disqualified.

Coat:
The ideal Male has a number of coats.  The outer coat can be of any material deemed desirable or necessary for the weather, and lack of coat shall only be faulted if left in the closet on a cold day.  Clothing can consist of any kind that is suited to the work the Male does, however, a pair of well fitting jeans accompanied by a clean white T-shirt enhances the appearance of the Male in leisure time.  Loose baggy or torn sweatpants and stained sweatshirts are serious faults.  The Male's under coat can vary in texture and thickness, and some chest hairs are not to be faulted.  Hair covering the back, the tops of feet and hands and protruding from the ears, and lack of hair on the head shall be considered serious faults.

Disqualifications:
Overly protruding or pointed ears
No jawline
A tail
Males with noses not the same color as their bodies
Any Male which attempts to lie to the judge
Currently married
Unemployed
