chained_bear commented on the word appenzell mountain dog
"There are two theories concerning the origin of the Appenzell mountain dog. One, that it is a native breed dating back to the Bronze Age; the other, that it is descended from the Molossus brought into Switzerland by the Romans." (Simon & Schuster's Guide to Dogs, 1980) "There are two theories concerning the awful writing in this book: one, that it was written by a roomful of chimps on typewriters; the other, that it was not written at all but is a figment of my nightmares." (Chained_Bear, 2007)
