Dear Dog Owner

By admin Posted in Club News, Updated posts / Comments Off on Dear Dog Owner

Dear Dog Owner,

This chain letter is meant to bring relief and happiness to you. Unlike most chain letters it does not cost money. Simply send a copy of this letter to six other dog owners who are dissatisfied with the way their dogs are working, then bundle up your own dog and send him to the dog owner at the top of the list, and add your name to the bottom of the list. In one week you will receive 16,436 dogs and one of them should be a cracker.

Have faith in this letter. One dog owner broke the chain…
And got his own dog back!!!

Happy dogging.

Why We Love German Shepherds 
Quanto 060• Written by: PetPlace Staff
It’s not easy to earn worldwide respect and admiration, yet one canine breed has accomplished just that.
Renowned for intelligence, physical prowess, and functionality, the German shepherd has developed into one of the most popular breeds across the globe. This fact comes as little surprise to most German shepherd owners, who’ve witnessed this breed embody some of the most desirable traits any human or dog can offer, including loyalty and heroism.
The German shepherd first achieved international prominence following World War I, when soldiers returned home raving about the intelligence this breed displayed while serving as military messengers and rescue dogs. Since then, this breed has been both purposeful and beloved while occupying roles ranging from police and military service to household protection and devoted companionship.
Here are six reasons we adore German shepherds: Read the rest of this entry »
