lamonsas, you can't assume about people's past. it shouldnt matter that you didn't know I had a rott. It would have even been more acceptable to say, "is the reason you want a rottweiler becuase you think it would make a good guard dog?" I wouldn't have been extremely HAPPY with that, still becuase of the insinuation that that's all they're good for, but it would have been more acceptable.
