When my dog is in tape and I get a comment, I tend to say that we tape their ears to make them stand up straight. There are a lot of people who will let it go at that because I don’t mention any surgery and they don’t know any better. But yes, you will get comments.

Dobes tend to get a lot...with my grown ones, it’s usually “He’s so beautiful” and almost invariably “We had one when I was a kid--he was the best dog”, followed up by all kind of fond stories. I don’t think I’ve ever had anyone who told me they once owned a dobe tell me a bad story.

And then there’s the side-long glance, the nervous look and the avoidance thing. You learn to have a thick skin.
