I grew up with six siblings and 6 different dogs over the years, including 2 huge German shepherds. We were not always watched when playing. No one ever even got a scratch. I guess even dogs are stressed out these days.
Perfect example of my tagline.
My grandfather had a German Sheppard on his farm when we (5 grandchildren) were younger. She was the greatest dog. We would climb all over her, tug on her ears and tail and she would just lay there and watch us.
