KidneyStone: Gig103: I hope Eddie doesn't suffer from PTSD and bite a child or end up homeless.

A lot of those dogs DO come back with genuine PTSD.  Not to mention their handler changes every year.

I met a retired military dog that had been in both Iraq and A-stan.  Poor thing is all sorts of messed up in the head.

Can't hold a job. Gets in fights. Abuses alchohol and pain killers. Collects far too many weapons....

Breygon: Martin The Mess: See, this is why you use a Malinois, not some stupid cocker spaniel named Bullwinkle.


can a Malinois find a body part that rhymes with "peered senis"?

Benevolent Misanthrope: Good advice for any dog, actually. I always ask the owner/handler, "May I pet?" before reaching.

I had a little kid (5, 6...maybe 7 years old) ask me "Does your dog bite?" He doesn't, but I figured that no one's ever been sued because their dog DIDN'T bite someone. So I tell the kid "Yeah, he bites." The kid reaches out to pet Buddy. So I said "Hey! He bites!". The kid hesitates for half a tick, then reaches out again, to pet my dog. At that point, I snapped at him "Are you learning impaired! I JUST told you he bites! What is wrong with you???" His dad starts lookin' at me like I'm the asshole...

Another time, I took Buddy to a local diner, so I could get breakfast. I had Buddy tied up outside, about 15 feet from the front door. As I'm eating my hash browns and whatnot, I look out the window, and see some random dude and his girl walk up and just start petting my dog. Good thing Buddy doesn't bite, but THEY didn't know that. They just approached a strange dog, and shoved their hands in his face. He didn't bite 'em, but if he had, I'd blame the person assaulting an unknown dog, before I'd blame a dog for getting defensive when approached and handled by strangers.

This hero tag is so overused the stories are not worth clicking on any more.

It's a dog.
