I took Gunner to the park for a walk this morning. While we were strolling around the playground area, a little boy came up and wanted to pet Gunner. He was calm and asked politely so I let him. While he was petting Gunner, his Mom came up. She was friendly and commented on how calm Gunner was being. Then she asked what breed he was. As soon as I said "doberman" her whole attitude changed. She quit smiling and said, "Oh. Well, he's sweet now but just wait until he's grown." I said, "What do you mean?" She said, "Oh you know how those dogs are...they get mean when they get older." This obviously ticked me off but I stayed calm and just said," Well actuallly that's not true at all but you've obviously already made up your mind about the breed." With that, we left. Sometimes stupid people seriously drive me crazy. How do you respond to breed predjudice?? I really wanted to tell her off, but I could tell she wasn't changing her mind and I didn't want to stoop to her level.
