Michele, you just reminded me of the security guard at the B Match that I took Piaget to on Friday. When he saw Piaget he said, "I had one of those," and I just smiled at him. He added, "and I bred it to a Bulldog... and you know what I got!" and he started roaring with laughter. He thought he was so funny, so I just smiled and continued on my way. It took a bit before I realized what he thought was so funny. Doh.
And yes, I love how our dogs almost always bring smiles to the faces of other people. It makes the world seem a lot friendlier and less harried.
Amanda, unfortunately, there is a lot of truth to that history. It was that way in Cuba and several other parts of the world. If I recall correctly, parts of Europe lost a lot of their dogs too. People couldn't afford to keep them and used them as a means of survival for themselves.
