I took my dober-boy into Petsmart the other day to look at pet beds (and also because I like showing off how pretty he is). Anyway. So, as I'm checking out a man comes up behind me with a mastiff.
Me: "Oh, I love that breed, they're so strong looking, but so cuddly at the same time!" Him: "I had a friend who had a doberman once, brain kept growing after it's head stopped. Thing went crazy mean." Me: "...."
I heard the same thing tonight from some drunk girl on my daily walk with my pups. "Oh my gosh! Do you know why they're so mean?" Me: *sigh* Drunk girl: "It's because they're brains outgrow their craniums."
How can people believe this? If their skull stopped growing and their brains mashed into it they'd hemorrhage and die, not go crazy. Idiots.
I invited a good friend of mine over today to hang out and she told me that she wouldn't step foot in my house because she had a friend who had a doberman and the dog attacked a baby and they had to shoot it to get the baby's head out of the dog's mouth. Right. Right I kind of blew up at her and said that she could just forget about it then, because we don't have any guns to shoot my dogs with if they happen to try to swallow her head.
