Some people just don't realize how big of a chunk of our hearts our dogs possess. They are family, not just pets.

GSD Fanatic 101 I have only got one comment that made me angry and that was about a year and a half ago when Kara was still in training. Other than that I get mostly good comments. I usually get the comment about her being a mix because of her coloring. There was one woman who said she thought she was because she had a bigger smile than the average shepherd? :P I do get the "Can/will she bite?" or "Is she aggressive?" question. I always say no but my smart mouth always tries to get the better of me :P. I have gotten the service dog question from time to time because Tokara wears a backpack on our trips to the corner store or when going on hikes. I take that as a compliment though

Witz My dog is a sable so I have heard, "he's a wolf cross" or "he's not a purebred because he does not have a solid black back". The best was when he was profiled as "that dog attacked my friend on the trail the other day", number 1 we were never there "that day" because we never go to "that" trail. For those who were confused over the many coloring types, I tried to explain. For the loon who implied the attack, I told her we were never there and then told to her that she would make a lousy witness. I could see and hear the fear and anger in her tone, so we just walked away. Those GSD's just draw a lot of attention.

petite It doesn't really make me upset but I do think it's hilarious to be asked if my puppy is a "Police Dog" nervously. I also had a man talk to me for ten minutes about how epic his "GSD/Dobie" mix was and I was lucky to have one before I politely mentioned she's a bi-black GSD, no "epic mix" here.

PoukieBear Hubby and I made the 6 hour drive back to Toronto for the Easter weekend, and of course we brought the dog to meet everyone for the first time.

Hubby's best friend has an opinnion about EVERYHTING and I absolutely hate it.

Lako Jumped out of the truck on command, peed on a bush and laid down in the shade while we stood around talking.

Hubby's friend told us we should muzzle our dog, because he looks threatening....ya, as he's sprawled out on the grass, sleeping with his tongue hanging out. So threatening...

PoukieBear I had a guy yesterday try to convince me that Lako was part wolf. LOL, this is the second time this has happened.

Needing Advise Thank you for your kind words Freestep. I've been quiet & in tears for almost 2 months. I can't wait to tell the whole long story, it's a nightmare. I will be posting some pictures when I can figure out how to do it.

BTW this is when they released him to me. Two other Vets saw him & both knew instantly the Vet that Volunteers for the Humane Society did not diagnose him correctly and operated and gave him antibiotics that did nothing for the infection he had. BTW this was suppose to be a No Kill Shelter that seized him along with 38 other dogs & puppies. They wanted us to pay $800 for his Vet bill, while advertising his bloody face & ears on their website begging for donations.
I am so glad that you found this forum and are speaking up. Many of us have been following this story and we can see that there was something fishy going on with this seizure from the start. I am so glad you finally got your dog back, and I'm sorry that this happened to you. The truth will come out.
