I'm guessing that since it's on this site it's ok to promote it.

They are also quite strange dogs .... lovely but strange temperaments and many suffer mental conditions perhaps not so far from autism spectrum .... they can be quite intellegent and yet do the stupiest things .. forget what they are doing and joyfully start something else like running in circles for 30 mins...
HUH??? Autism is NOT a mental condition. Using a term such as that when describing a Pervasive Developmental Disorder is a mis-characterization of the issues involved with that Dx. Autism, or the other "spectrum disorders", are NOT psychological disorders. But, the implied message is there when you use a term such as mental condition while discussing it. Yes it is a Dx disorder in the DSM, however it is quite different than being Dx with Bi-Polar Disorder or something of that nature.
Speaking as a parent-my son has a mild language delay and mild Sensory Modulation Dysfunction-and a special education teacher who has worked with many children of varied abilities and disorders within the Spectrum, I find your statement to be both inaccurate and highly offensive in that you would compare a dog's temperament and actions to that of a child/adult who is Autistic.
You're obviously a very knowledgable man, and I don't believe it was your intention to be offensive. However it was, very much so, to me. Pervasive Developmental Disorders have an emotional, human side to them and are far more complicated than a dog who "can be quite intellegent and yet do the stupiest things .. forget what they are doing and joyfully start something else like running in circles for 30 mins..."
That statement simply struck a cord with me, and I was compelled to respond.
