We got it wrong.

Last night my son came home and told me one of his friends had taken him to one side and told him (completely seriously) that he was concerned for our safety.

Apparently, it is a known fact that aged 8 a Doberman has this bone that grows in his skull which cuts into his brain and makes them turn on their owners.

And there I was under the impression it was their brains that grew too big for their skull.

Doh! we got it wrong guys.

Run for your lives!!!!!!

Oh I think Thor started early, he likes to TURN over while he lays ON ME for a belly rub. I didn't know the bone in his skull was responsible for that. Good to know.

Age 8? Oh crap, Griffin is turning 8 sometime this spring. I don't know his exact birthday, either, just his shelter intake date.

I'm living with a ticking time bomb.

Don't be alarmed. Griffin's birthday doesn't come along till after the world ends on Dec. 21 this year . . . so neither of you needs to worry. Nor do any of the rest of us. Phew!

I had someone tell me the same thing, no age was stated. I just looked at her with a blank stare. I always think nothing will surprise me, it always does.

You should have your son tell his friend that you are concerned for *him* because it sounds as if his brain has already outgrown his skull, and you don't think they should be friends anymore... lol

My supervisor and I got into an argument with some old guy we work with because we both have dobermans and he rudely told us that we were foolish for owning such a vicious breed of dog and that they shouldn't be trusted because they always turn on their owners because they aren't smart and don't know better.

Actually, there is a problem/disease with the size of the brain/skull size in some breeds of dogs, Syringomyelia (SM) and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel .... If you really want to see how bad things are in some breeds,, watch these videos Pedigree Dogs Exposed | Watch Free Documentary Online

Oh Burns - that made me giggle!! Toby'shuman gee - I was under the impression the brain outgrew the skull, too - and at a lot younger age - I thought it was 3 or 4... well, Willie is 9, so maybe he is an anomaly. Annie, at 3 1/2, has a little while before we have to panic. Oy, really, the things some people will believe, against all reason.


their pawprints in our hearts never fade

It's true! But, if I remember aright (don't have the time to watch the video again just now), it causes the dog a lot of pain, it doesn't send him/her into a murderous rage.
