carmspack quote "In his article in Koiramme 12/97 (Our Dogs Magazine, published by the Finnish Kennel Club), Tapio Eerola tells about breeders, that have received a special permission from the Finnish Kennel Club to cross the Pinscher and the Schnauzer in order to expand the narrow gene pool of Pinschers. Their breeding after the World Wars is based on five (5) foundation dogs.
Päivi Rantasalo, the breeding consult of the Finnish Kennel Club, refers in her article (Koiramme 4/98) to the same problem within other breeds as well. The article was titled “Where to find more vitality into breeding pure bred dogs?” In Koiramme 9/01 there is an article titled ”Where has the aim to breed purely led us?”, also written by Päivi Rantasalo. This article is a summary of the Breeding Symposium, which was held in Uppsala, Sweden, and arranged by the Swedish Kennel Club. The lecturers challenged breeders to briskly move to the new millennia, away from the old attitudes of the last century.
The Finnish Kennel Club held a seminary about dogs and their anatomy in 2002. Kaj Sittnikow, a vet specialised in small animals, recommended the prohibition of close in-breeding in order to get rid of hereditary diseases due to the incest. An article “Motion is a medicine for a dog” (Koiramme 3/02) tells more about the seminary."

Baillif PETA has been losing too much traction I think. People are starting to see past their crap to who they really are. Humans aren't going to give up tens of thousands of years of dog domestication for a few wack jobs posing naked in magazines.

selzer 100 years is a ways away. Who knows? If PETA has it their way, we won't own dogs in 100 years. There may be some feral dog packs. I'm kind of glad I will be dead and won't have to see that. At least until the rest of my life, there will be people alive who know how much pleasure there is in owning a great dog.

It was my idea first whoever actually comes out with it owes me royalties you are all witnesses.
Nope sorry. Robert Heinlein already did it in Starship Troopers with his Neo-dogs.
