So this is a bit of a vent.....
Why is it that when we said we were getting Boss people said "do you know how big he will grow? will you be able to handle him?" ...the list goes on.
Boss is 8 months, ridgeback x bull mastiff.
he doesnt snatch food, he walks perfectly on a lead (with a halti) he fetches, he has an ok recall, he is gentle with the kids, he protects and barks at strangers but when told to stop he does, he has fairly good doggy manners. seriously he couldnt be a better well behaved family pet.
the people that have spent time with him/us know this, but there are a few of my husbands mates really rib me about not being able to handle him/walk him/train him. yet they have NEVER seen us, so dont know. They just assume that i am this meek and mild weak woman that cant do it all, and damn it, I piss it in!
I have 3 kids, they are all well behaved, dont throw tantrums, use their manners etc etc. My house is clean and tidy, washing is done, 3 meals on the table everyday al made from scratch. Yet i get teased for this too.....people think i cant/dont do it. GRRR so over peoples dumb arse opinions!
Thankyou for listening
