Default What kind of dog is that? STORY MOVED

Well its happining again, when i was a boy my first dog of my own was an all white GSD and 9 out of ten people would say beautiful dog what kind is it? My next GSD was black and tan and everyone would say nice looking Shepherd! Well now i have an all black GSD (Bogee check out his photos he's amazing) and here we go again 9 out of 10 people say wow awesome looking dog what kind is it? When i tell them they didnt even know they come in so many colors, im glad to inform them but i guess it just still suprises me with my new puppy 30 yrs later!

As the proud owner of a black GSD, I haven't heard any snarky remarks. GSDs come in all colors so this shouldn't surprise people.

No matter the color, a GSD is a GSD!

I get this ALL THE TIME!

"Is that a Lab?"

"Is that a Lab mix?"

"Is he a wolf or a wolf mix?"

"There is no such thing as an all black GSD, he's a mix, you should inform the AKC that they made a mistake registering your dog."

I've only had one person guess right so far. "Is that an all black GSD? Those are rare. She's beautiful!" Made my day.

Wow. Idiot that person was! People like that, I like to make them feel stupid - do you know how come some people have blue eyes? All black GSD is the same thing, a recessive gene. Besides she's not all black, look at her toes. At which point, they have to get close and Venus can give them a love mugging.

I hear that too! I think my favorite though was when a girl in the drive-thru window said: "Wow, she's so pretty! She looks like a German Shepherd, only...black!" Most people also thought Xena was a "he", until we got her a purple collar, lol.

Well happened again on our morning walk today, a gentleman stopped as he was driving past and asked me what kind of puppy that was and for the first time i responded.... sir if he was black and tan in color what would u think he was take a good look, he did and then said wow a German Shephard! I said u got it what do u think of him? He said he stopped because he had seen us the day before and thought Bogee was the best looking puppy he had ever seen and had to find out what breed he was! Bogee is my 3rd GSD and i couldn't be happier with him he really is awesome so smart and willing to learn , and our bond after only 6 weeks together is a gift from God and i am so thankfull for him. I look forward to many years of love and loyalty with him just as i had with my others!!! Love u Bogee LOL.
