Hi Torgny,

Sometimes we "dog lovers" get wrapped up in our friends and forget they are dogs. Such is the case with King. We originally got him for my son, for his 33rd birthday. Then his signifigant other (my daughter-in-law) became pregnant, and within a few months, we took over the care of King. They already have a two year old boy, and my son works six days a week, so a dog was too much. He is very happy here with us and will be forever.

He is actually two dogs-- an outside dog and an inside dog, with individual personalities suited to each environment. We've had dogs before in our life together, but never one to make such an impact as this one. He is very smart, and trying to avoid being "trained" by him is difficult. Sometimes I think he is part wolf in that regard. Thank you for asking, and since this is a photography forum, here are a couple of pics..:-)

Eight weeks old...



Three months...



Eight months...



Seventeen Months...



Sorry to have gotten so long-winded... Robert

I almost forgot his breed, he is a German Shepherd...
Robert,

Thank you very much for your pictures of your wonderful Schäfer and thank you for the thoughts on dog's individualities and that we shold never forget that they are dogs, not humans

Personally I find dogs more interesting than people, they are less predictable and they don't destroy the planet

Thanks, Robert

Torgny
