surviving the bite of a king brown is a second miracle in that story.

they can kill a grown man in 15 minutes.

Dobermans!!! They're the greatest dogs - that kind of loyalty is no surprise to me. We had several females when I was growing up.

I'd have them now, except a couple of Dobies in the house is too much for me & I don't like having just one dog. My compromise is to have 3 Min Pins!





PS - reading the condition that poor Dobie was in when she was rescued really makes me want to be violent towards all animal abusers. Very, verrrrrry violent.... slowly.... for an extended period of time.

Dogs are the best animals ever. There is something so special and different about them. I love them to bits.

That is an awesome dog, but see, a Queenslander cat would actually make an effort to kill the snake before it could come in contact with humans.

Also, dogs are rising up against us.

Re: Cats rule dogs drool

Digging claws into the owners face?

That cat wasn't trying to save it's owner, it was trying to save itself (get the fuck up and save ME! *claw*).

Or kill the owner so it could have barbeque.

Sounds like what my cat would do.

Or, what she has done.

I had one (got her from the pound ) and she was a very sweet dog. She was spazzy, but very sweet. I was surprised how many people were sure we would have huge problems with her -- we got a lot of the "she'll turn on you" cautions just because of her breed. Of course it never happened -- she was always a good dog.

I was gonna say they were spazzy but didn't know if that'd go down to well,. They were completely spazzy, especially during thunderstorms, or rain, or just anything really

That seems to be so true of the breed at least from most of the people I've known who have had them. Erika was awful during storms, and if the electricity went off she was nearly inconsolable. She couldn't stand that there was NO noise! And once the battery in a hard to reach smoke detector was low so the detector let out this beep every few minutes. I'm scared to death of heights and it was at the top of a room with a cathedral ceiling, so I just couldn't climb up and take it down. The poor dog was nearly out of her tiny little mind. Finally I did manage to get it down, but it kept beeping, even without the battery (and I didn't have any others of that type). I had to take it and stick it in an outbuilding far from the house before she would calm down. Life with Erika was always an adventure.

I looove Dobies... I want one someday, when I have a house big enough for one. I always wanted one when I was a kid and people thought I was nuts for wanting a "mean" dog

my friend's german shepard is terrified of storms too... he goes and hides in the bathtub and my friend will go sit with him to calm him down
