asja Well, I could breed a dog if I wanted to, but I don't, and never will.

Then again every person that you meet at the park , or during casual conversation HAS such a doggy at home.

But... but, is it OK to humanize them? Yes, I am talking about the breeders, these soulless creatures who sell little adorable puppies.

JakodaCD OA Also agree..Now YOUR overstating, calling bashing this breeder since you have no first hand knowledge of it..

I think you are overstating, alot about yourself as well..

^^This. Honestly Lobobear, if I were a breeder and I saw ANY of your posts on breeders, I would say "no thanks" because of the constant looking for issues and posting about them. I would be scared that if your dog had an issue, either genetic or of your own making, the whole world would hear about it.
