    We have parties with Ziggy being present. Normally, she is the center of attention (which she loves). But she usually calms down after a short while and goes to her mat and snores away. Usually that is..... Not so today. We had a Worldcup Final Breakfast Party this morning.... People arriving at 4 am.... Well, Ziggy didn't calm down. She was going from one to the other with a madly wagging bum, her tail was doing circles, and woo woo wooo This went on for the whole match with breaks in between when she was working on her kong. Sooo funny! I guess the time of the day confused her a bit

    My Ziggy loves parties too, always someone to get pats from. But I can understand you don't want Tyson running around. I think you are being very accommodating for your friend, I wouldn't even dream of asking someone to hide their pets away. I can't believe she wanted him gone completely, what's he going to do, chew through the door just to bite her?

    Its always been a very "love me love my dogs" kind of house with me. I mean we minimise the number out when we have guests, but they are always there.
    I am fully awear of some peoples dislike of the dogs but I have a dog couch and human couches and the dogs all know the boundaries. The human can sit with the dogs if they would like or they can sit on the human only couch and tell the dogs to go away, which they usually do. If it does get a bit crazy they just go outside to play. The dogs know not to push too much or they get kicked out. If I have kids over, like my ex's girl or my cousin, most of the dogs will be outside when she is inside and inside when she is out... or off playing somewhere else lol
    I may sound harsh but I am a dog person, if you come to my house you are going to see the dogs its that easy. They wont be in your face if you dont want them to be but I am not going to pretend I dont have them just to make someone else feel better about themselves.
    I dont understand how someone could go to another persons house and demand that their dog not be there, ask for it to be locked away sure, but to demand it not even be at the house is just plain rude.

    Breeding, Showing, Training and general crazy making!!!
    If you seek understanding listen to the music, not the song.

    Thanks guys

    The party went well. My dad ended up staying home and he had Tyson in the back room. He bought him in for about 30 seconds - he was taking him outside for a break and some people saw him. He was on a lead the whole time and was very well behaved.
    At the end of the night, my dad was coming back in and the preggo lady and one of her friends were here. I'd previously asked if it was ok if I let Tyson in, the friend said no as she wasn't comfortable so we didn't.
    So dad walked in, I thought Ty was on the lead but he wasn't, so I put him on the second he got in the door (Dad had it in his hand and was right next to Tyson, who was dopiley walking around in a 'why did you wake me?' state).

    Anyway, today, the preggo one gets me on facebook and says, '*friend* was really scared because Tyson came in at the end of the night off the lead' and she posted some not nice comments on photos of him, about him attacking Roxie because he's so much bigger etc.

    I'm mad. Tyson had walked past for about 10 seconds. Dad thought everyone had left, and Tyson wasn't even in the door when I put the lead on!!! The girl was on the other side of the room, she probably wouldn't have even noticed Tyson in there if we weren't talking about him.

    People are so judgmental. It really annoyed me. Other than that the day was fine, but the prejudice hasn't gone even though she has met Tyson.

    She's acting like we have this mongrel dog who sat in the middle of the room and snarled at everyone. This isn't harry potter. Tyson is not a three headed monster guarding a trap door, regardless of how similar they look.

    He will be going home at the end of the week so it won't be an issue anymore. I'm really disappointed in the way she acted.

    That's why I love dogs more than humans!! Tyson would kiss and hug anyone he met regardless of who they were or how they looked.

    Also a Bgrade movie called Rottweiler too.

    Also all the security Rottys locked in business overnight (caryards etc).


    Its media brainwashing, similar to whats been done about Islam or Afghan = terrorist. Rotty = raaaa scary dog run.
    Yes, until they meet a well raised one who isn't easily brainwashed.....lol

    I agree that certain breeds have a protective instinct and my girl would follow her instinct to protect what she loves. She also respects and follows my leadership so if I'm friendly and accepting towards a person coming into my house then she is too.

    To be honest that woman sounds like an idiot, can't say I would be friends with her any more.
