GSDs 2, Monster 0
This is one of those posts that is too long for my SGADS Facebook page.
So I admit, besides any and all animal books, one of my favorite types of non-fiction books are ones on serial killers and true crime. I just finished Monster, which if you like the genre, is excellent. It's about a truly evil creature named Thomas Luther who preyed on young women (of course ).
Anyway, after meticulous and grueling detective work, this piece of trash was finally caught. Typical of most of these losers, he was a narcissist who always played the victim and whined like a toddler when things didn't go his way.
On the morning of his court appearance, Mr. Crybaby decided he didn't want to leave his cell (sad horns). The judge ordered deputies to get him up to court "any way they had to", so the deputies deployed some FINE persuaders.
That's right. When Mr. Tantrumpants came face-to-face (literally) with a pair of growling K9 German Shepherd Dogs, he quickly complied.
In fact, the deputies got the dogs to bark at him periodically just to remind him who was boss, and the author noted that "Luther would visibly flinch." YES!
The second instance was more poignant. One of Luther's victims survived a horrible blitz knife attack. This brave young lady, although terrified for years after the assault, took action and formed a support group for crime survivors named after her GSD, Heidi. She credited Heidi with making her feel safe again. And isn't that one of the most beautiful things about our breed, guys? Gentle enough to play with tiny kittens but strong enough to make a survivor feel secure--And tough enough to scare a real-life monster.
