    Haha you're right, I hate Mondays! LOL

    Hm...

    The Doberman's brain grows larger than his skull, causing him to become vicious. Silliest one I've ever heard.

    Black dogs are more aggressive and you can count the number of times a dog wags its tail in a minute to find out how many years old it is.

    Thanks for making Monday more fun!

  • I'm especially hating this monday - working a 12hr shift!!

    All "myths" that relate to breeds are the silliest I think - such as the typical "Pits, Rotties, Mastiffs are dangerous and eat children" "All Terriers are snappy". Just shows ignorance really.

    Of course the medical "Females should have one litter/one heat before being spayed" "Castration cures all behavioural problems" "Dogs have periods"

    Problems is, if they are said enough, people believe them. I know going out with wet hair wont really give me a cold - but it was drummed into me when I was younger and now I always dry my hair before leaving the house....!!

    just today I read some one say, some one said that dogs with spotted tongues are good dogs ??????????????? WHAT THE!!!!

    Wishnuwelltoo: That is the biggest load of crock I have ever heard. I grew up with GSD's, more then one, NONE bit me, NONE growled at me, NONE attacked any body, NONE were aggressive. GSD's are wonderful dogs. Yours... probably were just not trained

    I've always the "loved" the common (but completely wrong) fake training tip that if you find pee/poo on the floor, run & grab your dog by the scruff & rub his nose in it while screaming"NO! BAD DOG!!!" in his ear.

    Oh, idiocy.

    Black dogs are evil...Fur color makes no difference.

    German Shepherds are good with kids. Actually this stupidity is something my mother used to fall for. She kept buying german shepherds because people told her they were good with kids, and of course they weren't. German shepherds are an attack dog that bites more people than any breed, so I don't know how many of these stupid dogs she bought before she finally got the clue they are not good with kids.
