"IN DOG YEARS, I`M DEAD"
Sunday, April 18, 2010
Instead I went to dog training.
In the course of the evening the topic of the arguments between the KC and the German Shepherd people came up. I said that a lot of the weaknesses in the breed had come over from Germany.
"Well, she said, there used to be some good ones in Germany, with straight backs and good hocks." She paused and thought. "Hitler had a nice one.
I thought for a bit. This was history in a new light. But I had seen pictures, after all. "Yes, not bad."
"Isn`t that the dog game all over ! Loathe the man, love his dog!"
I felt I dared not add anything to this. I am known for being very cynical about dogshowing, but, gentle reader, some comparisons are best not pursued at all.
