@the people that take offence at the use of the word stupid.
The word I need in welsh is 'TWP' which is a way of saying someone is 'stupid' but also in an endearing way, not just as a derogatory comment.
Daft, goofy, um, foolish I don't know ffs.
If I had put 'twp' you may not have understood what the hell I was saying, or do you use the word 'twp' also?
Maybe these links will help:
Dobermans are generally naturally obedient to the point where it could be viewed as stupidity, they were bred that way in order to override the instinct of survival when faced with a personal protection scenario.

copy and paste the words between boxes a few times and you will see it becomes gibberish in no time.
and: twp - Wiktionary
The welsh word for stupidity in the bad sense is 'hurtrwydd' stupid is 'hurt' or 'dwl' depending on what you are saying. Google Translate
That welsh actually means 'Dobes sometimes do silly things because of their natural obedience that can make them seem daft'.
Bear in mind that every translation is ,um, proper (formal) welsh not really spoken welsh as such. Which makes it even harder for me to get my point across typing written welsh in that translator mostly comes up with gibberish.
Although I speak English on a daily basis and have done forever I think in Welsh. Welsh is actually very hard to translate into English with exactness of meaning because the structure is completely opposite and has many less words than english.
It's getting harder all the time because EVERYONE speaks welsh where I am living now (6ish years) to the point of militancy i.e they won't speak in English unless they really have to.
Indeed why should they?
Which is fine until you have to get precise and technical about things, which is also why sometimes I have to put just plain blunt sentences one after the other which some people seems to take offence at.
When I think of dobermans in this way I think they are 'twp', in my head which a literal translation is 'stupid' but has more uses than the derogatory 'stupid' so although it translates to stupid it means 'daft' maybe daft would have been a better word then.
Personally I have no problem with the word stupid, it means nothing bad particularly to me because stupid and daft/silly have similar weightings for me.
Sorry if I offended you it certainly wasn't my intention.
Oh and you may want to look up the word 'coegni' for the bit about my dobermans.
