"never let the truth get in the way of a good story "
the only time i have heard of a german shepherd attacking anyone other than the standard police dog type carryings on, was someone's german shepherd nailed a kid in a batman suit with big ears. it wasnt nasty but could have been. they reckoned the dog took the ears as a threat. and from having observed my neighbour's shepherd when i have been walking it, the ears are definitely very expressive and she uses them alot. as a breed they prob bark more than bite. the grand babes prob also dont need the trauma of gramps blowing away a dog with a handgun at close range. it is seriously not pretty.
I ordered You Are Your Own Gym, and it came in this weekend. Wifey got her mits on it and read it before I had the opportunity... then she had the audacity to mark up the exercises SHE liked... in MY book! lol
I read it last night... holycrap.... that guy is one sadistic SOB! Some of those exercises are nigh impossible (for my weak, fat self)!!!
so how did wifey's exercises compare to what you could do? we also never found out which is his hardest bending exercise in YAYOG. does he has a progression after one legged warriors with a weight? if he does it that is. maybe you should buy wifey BBY?!!
i am 1/4 irish and we also have dubious latin blood so it pays not to piss me off either on the family front. i have seen a dog shot at close range and it is ugly. i doubt a shepherd would maul your grand baby. it would prob just grab the chicken and run. as i said before, it was just being a dog. it is not its fault the owner sucks. problem avoidance in these situations is so much wiser than getting all stressed out.
i had dog induced rotator cuff issues. i got some clubbells to fix it as i figured i have to make it stronger to prevent it happening again.Yes, I probably should buy her BBY... Wifey has had rotator cuff and carpal tunnel surgeries over the last several years, so her strength is somewhat diminished. She had some significant heath issues a little over a year ago that left her very weak. Her shoulder and wrist problems make it difficult for her to lift her stand mixer (which she uses all the frikin time!) or 5 gallon water jug etc.
