    With the help of Google Translate, I was able to figure out that “killer dog” would roughly translate to “Tötenhund”.

    (TUINE: “Ach, Du Lieber Augustin”, Marx Augustin)

    Ach! Beware the Tötenhund!
    Tötenhund! Tötenhund!
    Ach! Beware the Tötenhund!
    Setzen! Und Platz!

    Although he’s not flying,
    He’ll keep us from dying!
    Oh, he controls the Tötenhund!
    Sergio rocks!

    “pfui”, often taken to mean “no” in schutzhund training, actually means “yucky”. Not quite a compliment, Dr. Lee!

    DreamHost still not fixed yet huh? I hope you guys can either get that straightened out or find a new Host. I miss reading the conversations over there. :)

    Wouldn’t “Halt!” work? (Same word in both languages, but in German you have to say it like you mean it. :-)

    But what does Platz mean? The only connection I can make is the guy who designed the Fokker Dr I, D VII and D VIII

    @Darwinskeeper

    “Platz” — Place
    In dog training, roughly the same as the English “Stay”
    I worked with a man who trained his Dobies o respond to German commands.
    This was made more interesting by his speaking German with a Southwest Louisiana accent……….

    in Germany, oh so many years ago, one Suthun Belle in the language class had a pronounced GIAWJUH drawl. Was not there when she was speaking German. of course, the Prof was German…that helped I think.

    What time is it? Lemon mints pats sem.

    One defense mechanism found in Nature is to taste so bad predators leave them alone. Other animals camouflage to look like them. See Monarch butterfly and the false Monarch as examples.

    A new member of the cast on the TV series “Person Of Interest” is an Alsatian that only understands Dutch.
