Me, too . . . but don't tell the others. And no, I wasn't offended by your question yesterday. I just had to give it a lot of thought so that I could explain how I feel. I hope I was pretty clear, though I know I wasn't yesterday.
When I first started going to training at Rick's field, I always stood off to myself with my dog, and could barely hear what was going on. I would often say (Hey, can you guys talk louder? I can't hear you . . ." because I had a fila and was off by myself. Now, when we are talking, I am able to stand in the group, and Oden hasn't bit anyone yet. I don't encourage strangers to pet my dogs, but if the person is going to be in the dogs life, I do encourage it, though I don't recommend that they do it when I am not around.
