Man's best friend
Man's best friend was back in the day of living free......people depended upon dogs. Dogs will keep a bear, wolf, monster from surprise attacking you........the old movie called OLE YELLER or where the red fern grows were great examples as was Rin TIN TIN and Lassie.......back in the good days, TV shows were good for kids.
I have had many dogs----anything from farm dogs, to hunting dogs and the last 30 years---German Shepherds.
The standard black and tan German Shepherd can develop a good nose and will patrol the general property and attack coyote packs and kill them and drag them to your door step....those types generally will smell fear, smell bad people and not like the bad people.......they can put their paws on your shoulders and look you directly in the eye and show their teeth ---telling the bad people---you can not come 1 inch
closer.........those types are OK and great home protection dogs----will travel with you and protect you. Not the greatest around small children and nosy neighbors.
German Shepherds tend to know the property line and not harm what they know you own......while various other small breeds of dogs will try to kill everything no matter what you do to stop them.
Hunting dogs will smell a female dog 5+ miles away, so the males must be kept on strong cables and held by post deep in the ground and even then, they can be a pain over their lifetime......they demand collars with your name and number, but those days are long gone---many people today in the country will take dogs they find or take dogs they see loose and try to sale them.....the days of honesty are pretty much over as America has been overhwlemed with people moving into the country sides.
Black German Shepherds today are also seen with cops as protection dogs and dope finding dogs...so apparently some of them do have a good nose or can be trained to locate a certain smell.
Black German Shepherds are the only breed we have ever raised puppies with----because the boys liked to and the breed is amazingly smart dogs. This breed I believe would live side by side with a human their entire lifetime if they were allowed to.....they are easily trained and want to learn......
How some races can eat their dogs is a bit strange......especially in china where they have a celebration by whipping 10,000 dogs to death, with the belief the extreme Adrenalin makes the meat taste better.....IN AMERICA Adrenalin destroys animal meat---gives it a horrible smell and taste.
People today and their fascination with pet dogs has created a gigantic market for house and purse size miniature mutts. They mix breed and Genetically-Modified-Organisms
them until they are stunted, mixed up and basically retarded and could not tolerate cold weather or survive with out special food....people often treat those dogs better than children and when it comes to herbal use, many will buy herbs for their dogs, but never for their children.
A REAL DOG can easily live outside and wants to protect your house while you sleep.......and waits for you each morning and stays with you as long as you allow---a good dog never runs away.
A good dog would fight to the death for the human...
A real dog is going to be 40+ pounds
in size, otherwise coyotes / wolves can easily get them......it is amazing that with a pack of coyotes---they literally can kill a 80 pound hunting dog----they grab the dog by the legs and stretch in in 4 directions------yet, take a German shepherd that is out to kill every coyote and they will run for their lives... cowards will attack something that is scared, while they run when something is brave---this works with many bad animals, if you show no fear and pretend your chasing them to kill them---they will go the opposite way, even though they could easily kill you.
One thing strange about selling black German shepherd puppies is it takes specific people that desire them----most will travel 100+ miles to obtain one; some will travel 2-3 states away...that also means they believe they are getting a great deal price wise.
Dog food cost so much today, that it is just about as cheap to have a cow butchered to feed a dog.....and today, you can find 40+ different makers of dog foods flooding the stores---proof dogs are are the rise as children are fewer.....that and people are fearful of their neighbors---as people flood into America---people are searching for large breed dogs that live in small apartments........and actually, bazaar enough, it is not country people that seek to own the guns that shoot too many bullets, it is those city people crammed into small spaces and see people that look different than they look and speak differently than they speak and those buying the most dogs today, are people originally from Mexico.....and a majority of the puppies go to the inner cities and odds are they are house dogs..........a few women even say they are looking specifically for the german shepherds because they want them professional trained to kill anyone they sic-em on.
DOGS ADAPT, they will live in a tiny space if that is what master wants of them-----or they will travel Alaska and be fearless of polar bears......
Wildly enough, America's first use of dogs was food---Natives were known to take 20 dogs on the hunt and eat them as food and they could only travel as far as they had enough dogs to eat...........
Dogs are seen as smart, some cats can be very smart; but as well, most all mammals are very smart and many can be trained to even like humans........one of the greatest videos ever made was of a man and his pet gorilla. He raised it in Europe and eventually returned it to the wilds.....far far away.....and up a river far enough where he hoped humans could never find him....he had trained his male gorilla sign language....
5 years passed and the man was missing his Gorilla and wanted to see if he could spot him and hope that he had survived.....as he took a small boat up the river and calling the gorilla's name, not only did he come, he brings his wife and children and they do not seem too fearful of seeing the human man......after all, Dad says it is OK.
Not only did the Gorilla know his human name, he remembers the sign language and the Gorilla loves the man so much
and misses his human----the Gorilla does not want the man to leave and hangs on to him like a long lost child would....
On the bazaar side of Gorillas you can search National Geographic back in the early 1970's and find an area of China that the village penned up female gorillas and have sex with them and have 1/2 human babies.......plenty of pictures.......and noteworthy, Jessie Venturer did a few shows on oddities the gov hides from the public some years ago and down south, he takes the cameras to a facility where they believe they have been raising 1/2 humans, 1/2 apes since the late 1970's---which suggested to me, the moment the gov seen someone was having sex with apes---they had to get in on it and surely the tax payers have been footing the bills....and no doubt the 1/2 apes have better medical and socialism benefits than human children get...........so it is not what you know, but who you know always in life as humans...........the crooks understand how to get those that work, to pay their bills.
This is why today---I bet there are more dogs and cats in America houses than there are humans...
FACT, not many years ago at all---in Ohio, there were more horses than humans........now Ohio is flooded with people that can not speak english and are planted in cities by the gov as colonies----groups taking over different sides of cities. The gov is literally planting and raising humans in city farms....that is a fact everyone knows....everyone knows what side of the cities who lives.
Who will out number who? My bet is the dogs----dogs remain man's best friend and today that goes for women and children because they developed house pets that look like dogs bark like dogs and try/want to speak like humans and sadly enough, some of these breeds are not able to take care of them selves and will walk into walls, walk off cliffs, walk into swimming pools and should and probably will one day be eligible for handicap parking spaces.
ONE REASON people like to raise toy breeds? They eat tiny amounts of food, but sale for more $$$ than the large breeds.
Captive dogs and captive farm animals tend to have defective offspring----animals are created to be free; not caged up zoo specimens.....dogs living in houses end up eating stuff humans eat and then develop human diseases, like cancers....i am sure the number 1 disease house dogs die of is heart disease, kidney failure and cancers.
