Out of the Blue

On the heels of talking about the dog show, PETA Files Legal Complaint Against Westminster Tail-Docking has word on an effort to end tail-docking... always controversial. I agree that the tail-docking (and it's cousin, ear clipping) no longer have any practical applications (if they ever had any), in spite of owning a dog with a docked tail. Airedales have a few inches cropped off the ends of their tails, and like many breeds where that's the custom, it is next to impossible to find them without this having already been done.

Ok, since nobody else has said it, I will.
I would rather have my tail docked then my genitals.

it is often said by fans of Great Danes that the tail is the most dangerous part of these gentle giants

My dog, which is Greater Swiss Mountain tail is deadly, it has put a hole in the dry wall before. However, he only gets it going like that when I come home and he missed me so much he is just soo happy! It really makes you feel good to come home and he gets all excited like that, so I just adapted and make sure to keep him and myself in the middle of the room when I get home for the first few min.

I do not know what he is mixed with, but he is over 2 years old, over 80 pounds, and yet he still looks a good bit like a puppy in the face, he is ridiculously cute. I swear whenever I walk him women will cross a 4 lane street to come see him! (Which of course I use to my advantage as much as possible, but I got him because I wanted a dog, not a pimp)
