My wife and I raise and show Tibetan Terrier dogs so maybe I can answer a few of your questions about what happened to the natural ferociousness that dogs normally show in congested situations.
First of all, if any dog shows any aggressive tendencies at a dog show, that dog would be banned from AKC shows. Rules of the organization forbid aggressive dogs and any breeder who keeps showing up with aggressive dogs could be banned too.p>All show dogs are socialized to not show aggressive behavior toward other dogs. We socialized our dogs by taking them to the local nursing home and other public places so they would get used to meeting strangers. Also, we took them to places like Petsmart, Petco etc. to meet other strange dogs. They learn not to be aggressive toward them. They will, however, be aggressive toward any strange dogs that wander into our yard so they will still protect the home. However, I doubt they if are any good at fighting. That is why we keep other big mutts outside to protect the show dogs! br> — Ken Penner br> Fairfield, Texas /p> p> THE WINNER OF OUR DISCONTENT

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
