It always cheers me up to see positive comments about a maligned breed (Doberman) or type of dog ("pit bull"). Luckily the term Doberman did not become part of the English speaker's lexicon.Thank you for the blog pointer
Love this. My Pit is a superdog! and wears a cape. (sometimes)
Great post, and thanks for sharing these links--yep, stereotypes of all sorts annoy me no-end. Unfortunately it doesn't stop there. Stereotyping produces breed-specific legislation, and ends with unnecessary cruelty. Thanks for raising awareness!
