That is a good article! I'm sending it to myself at home.

One thing, though. That website with the open letter, does it not contain this exact same paragraph?

"Any dog can be dangerous if not properly trained, socialized and controlled. In the past 40 years, North Americans have been fatally attacked by 37 different breeds, including an Irish setter, a Brittany spaniel and, shockingly, a Pomeranian cross. The dachshund -- affectionately known as the "wiener dog" -- has killed three people"

Hmmm...what came first, the open letter, or the article?
Hagar:"What kind of dog is that?"
Man with dog:"He's a nice dog!"
Hagar:"You know, at the end of the day, that's always the best kind."

That was one of the most comprehensive articles I have read. It addresses why this dog is where it is and I think that is the most important aspects as you can't solve a problem if you don't know what causes it. Good job finding that one!!!
