Thank you!

I didn't really appreciate the breed until I met Mike. IMHO they are definately a whole other animal from most dogs. Very smart, cunning, loyal. Most dogs like everyone, but if a GSD likes you, it is a choice they make to do so.

Cool! It's great to see so many people loving their breed. The more I hang out here, the more I like Shepards.

I had no idea what they were like - the only two I knew were in my neighborhood as a kid.

One was definitely a little schized out because the poor girl just hung out on a runner all the time. So she, of course, freaked out a ton whenever any of us came around - she probably wanted to play, but when you're 40 pounds of kid and 80 pounds of muscle and teeth starts barking at you......well, you get the idea....

The other one.....let's see - the father of the family of this dog told me that "Bruin" could do a great trick. All I had to do was bend down to tie my shoe (I was like 8 at the time). The "trick" was that Bruin then came to attack me! Yay! (Of course, if it was a "real" attack I know I would have been shredded, but the cut across my face was enough.... )

Why are people such assholes? Especially when the dogs are bred to be so wonderful??

Oh yeah - I remember one other GSD that I knew.

He belonged to the "blue-blood" family in NH. Holy shite was their house gorgeous - they lived in New England part time, but they were from the "main line." Don't ask me how I ended up haging with this guy - he was a friend of a friend and definitely slummin' it.

Anyway, his GSD was also schized out, but in an anxious, neurotic kind of way. I asked the guy what was up with the dog and he said, "Oh, he's a little neurotic because he's highly bred."

I looked at him and said, "You mean inbred?"

Needless to say, I was never invited back.

Anyway, looking back, it's no surprise that I hadn't felt particularly fond of the GSD. Thanks for opening me up!

kride, mine is a total freak whenever someone new comes over. And like you had hinted to...she just gets overly excited that someone is there just to see her! Yea, that's how she thinks. After a bit though she settles down, but that's because she's a mellow adult. That first year or two she never ever settled down.

With us around the house she just hangs out and gets in the way when your trying to walk around. She always wants to be with her family. If we are in separate rooms, she sits somewhere in between where she can keep an eye on both of us. Like already said above by others, she's loyal, protective and loves to play. Best dog I've ever had.

My wife wanted a Golden Retriever as that's what she had when she was a kid. I always had dachshunds but wanted a GSD. I put my foot down and when she saw the GSD puppies she was smitten. Now, getting to know this dog, I don't think she'll ever have another dog but a GSD. We both love her to bits.

I know, I know! Guilty as charged... Didn't have any newer than I already put up in my old GSD thread...

We'll be taking Misha over to Tony's tomorrow. Look for pics! I bet his little Himalayan Terrier OWNS her puppy ass, though...

You wanna see fun. Let your GSD play with a whippit. I had one wear my dog the heck out. He'd toy with my GSD, let her chase him till she just about caught him, then he'd pull a right angle turn and go a completely different direction and lay on the speed, then slow down and let her catch up and then do it all over again. That little dog whooped her arse.

"Moochie" the Boxer. Great guy, he now is up to 80 lbs. Sort of like living with Bart Simpson....you never know what he's going to do....but you know he's going to do something outrageous.

Bruce and Denver most excellent pictures!

Jasen I know what you mean about standing sentry. If Mike is in one room, I'm in another and the kids are orbiting, she tries to find the best place to be to guard everyone! But Mike is always priority number one!

Are we counting partial GSD Pups?

This is Cooper. He's been with us for 7 days and has done well.

I weighed him at the vet yesterday at 25.5 lbs.




Wait...that's not right!

This is the one!
Caught him during nap time. Again, I hope partial Germans are allowed.



Here's another my son helped with. My sons pants are "Sunday pants/ Yardwork pants" just for the record.

Partial and non pup allowed. The GSD will be the dominant gene anyway! He's a cutie! Nice touch with the kid in the cage, Mike would have the kid in the cage and the dog out!

I've mentioned our German Shepard / Siberian Huskey mix my wife got us last March before, so here's some shoots. Nanook, "The Beast", or "Nookie" as I call her when we're playing, went from this:

To this 75 lb thing in 10 months:




Now if I could only train the wife and kids, so the dog would act right all the time.

A little less course than a full breed GS, but still thick. When she molts, blooms, or whatever you wanna call it when the fur just drops off in clumps twice a year, it's easy to tell she's a working class dog compaired to our full breed female red huskey,



Btw, their both inside dogs. Talk about dust bunnies from he77.
