|yeah but the clippering involved in an airedale! you might as well go for a standard poodle. And the constant wet beard in your lap.
my in-laws have an airedale bitch that loves to greet you by first taking a big messy drink of water, trailing the drooly drops across the stone and wood floor for everyone to slip in, and then plops her soppy mug right in your lap and insists on being petted.
I have noticed that GSD owners around here seem to have a sort of self oriented perspective on life. It not that it's regimental, it's just they're family first, career first, king in their own castle sort of people.Unless the dog is a service dog or a police dog, GSDs are the sort of dog you get when you are living the american dream. Falling into that category specfically, the sort of people that drive a 3-5 ton diesel dualie and never go out into the country. If I ever saw a hippie in a hemp sundress and driving a smart with a GSD in the passenger seat, I think i would just bust out laughing. the farmers I know have all sorts of mixed breeds and herding breeds, and the hunters all have sporting dogs. I'm not saying GSDs are a city dog, but it seems that those of them that own them and happen to be in the city are that way.
I don't know what it means not to be a GSD owner in your area, but I might ask people to clarify. The truth is that you just love the dog you have. I don't look like a chihuahua person, but i am. It just took owning one or two to fall desperately in love with the breed, and I think it's that way for GSD too.
