    Default Help Me with a Witty Comeback!!!

    So I emailed that ACA Breeders Kennel yesterday. I was fairly aggressive, not expecting a reply, buuuuuut, I got one anyway.

    I said.
    I own a Jackmaltese and a Border Kelpie, would you like to breed them too? What about GreatChi's? Or Cavalier King Charles Shepherd? Or American Staffordshire Bichons?
    Just because you mix too breeds, doesn't make them legit. It makes you a backyard breeder, only in it for the money, trying to make a mutt sound more desirable. Im disgusted.


    And they replied with.
    Thank you for your email, Myf. I am always willing to talk to people to explain why we breed the dogs we do and also inform them that every breed began as a cross breed, and have been changed over the years to look "more suitable" for the show ring. We are also doing that but to create pets that are more suitable by temperament, size and coats for family pets, not by looks. The success of this is shown by the fact our breeds are rarely seen in shelters. I realise you are only 22, but I hope you will learn to keep an open mind and only make judgements when you know all the facts. You own 2 dogs you obviously love - why do you cynically think other people don't love theirs? Statistics show less than 7% of dogs come from pet stores, all are microchipped and traceable.


    I have so much to say but can't word it correct. Help me?

    Maybe ask if the parents have health checks for common diseases before they are bred, what sort of health guarantee can they offer on their pups?

    Well, regardless of whether you agree with what they do or not, they have answered you with far more respect and politeness than you gave them.

    You will get no-where if you word your reply in the same way you did the first e-mail, I'm sorry, Myf. Try answering them in the same tone they have answered you and might get your points and opinions across better?

    No no DA, I realise that.
    Honestly, I wasn't expecting any kind of acknowledgment. Seeing those 'breeds' really rialled me. I plan on replying more graciously..
    My first line is actually 'Sorry about my aggressive letter, I wasn't in a good frame of mind'.

    Oh, correct Considerably unnecessary to point out, especially by a member with a total of 7 posts, but correct.
    After all, it was an incredibly quick email.

    Myf I don't think a high or low post count should matter.
