Yesterday, we had a local arts and crafts fair called the Double Decker Festival that's held around the square here (Oxford, MS). My wife and I decided to take Butch and the wagon that he pulls with my 2 boys in it. Butch was absolutely PERFECT. He was very gentle, pulled the wagon perfectly and tirelessly, and was very friendly. Dozens of people asked if they could pet him and he loved every second of it. I had several people tell me I should build and sell the wagons next year, but I'm not really interested in that. We had tons of people take our picture and EVERYWHERE we went people were saying "hey look at that" and stopping us and talking to us about the wagon and how wonderful Butch is. I was so proud of him. I really want people to see that a GSD is not a dog to be afraid of just because it's a GSD. I feel that everytime I take Butch out with his wagon we are making great strides towards that goal even if it is only locally. There was one lady who wouldn't let her child pet him, but usually when people see him pulling my kids in the wagon and see the way he behaves and composes himself they realize he is friendly and let the children ask me if it's O.K. I could ramble on and on about this, but I will spare you. I am just so proud of him. If only I could figure out how to get my kids to behave as well as he does.
