Your comment about putting a disclaimer in Wegman's book reminding
everyone that Weimereiners are not for everyone makes me think of the
Good Dog Carl books...about a Rotweiller who is put in care of a baby by
the mother as she leaves for a while. The books are always the
same....she gets ready to leave, tells Carl to mind the baby, while
she's gone they have a RAUCOUS good time together, doing all sorts of
mischief, and then halfway through the book, the mischief ends and Carl
puts everything away, makes it all normal again. Mom comes home and
sees the baby asleep,everything just like it was, and she pats him on
the head and says "Good Dog, Carl!" The last page has Carl with a "S"
eatting grin on his face....yea, what an angel. I wonder how many
people bought Rottweillers because of that book, and of course, 1001
Dalmations saw the increase in Dalmation demand and a lot of those dogs
are hyper and ended going back to shelters too.
