I saw a K9 demonstration at Spring Spree one year back home and even from a young age i was in awe of the power and grace the dog possessed. Stunning dogs. Them I got to meet the dog and got bathed in kisses. I was sold from then on. Wasnt until after I got my first GSD that I learned my great grandfather (i never knew him) had a GSD at one point. I'd always heard the story of how he made sure the dogs were trained to protect the kids (my grandma is oldest of 9) and how one day he went to spank one of my uncles for something and the dog jumped over the ironing board and bit him because he forgot to put the dog out. Only after my first GSD came home did my grandma tell me the dog in the story was the GSD.
Dont worry! My great gpa didnt fault the dog for biting him. The dog was only doing what he'd been trained to do and great gpa ALWAYS remembered to put the dog outside after that lol. I believe his name was King. I'll have to ask my grandma.
