On second thought

On Turkey Day, go to the dogs

Dog shows, I suppose, aren’t true sporting events, even though there are winners and losers and the competition looks ferocious, especially so when the TV camera zooms in on that total psycho stare of a German shepherd. Gives me the creeps.

Maybe I misunderstand the breed, but I know the German shepherd is the dog of choice when cops want to control crowds, catch robbers, and chase down drug dealers. So just how much am I misunderstanding about these sweet, adorable pets?
