    I've seen afghans who live in padded crates to preserve their coats - never running or playing. Not fair by any stretch of the imagination.
    But I've also seen pet old english sheepdogs who can't sit down due to matting and sores on their backside 'cause their owners don't look after their coats.

    Moderation in everything would seem like the key, but with moderation as a prime consideration would we actually have such a variety in size and type such as we love with our dogs?
    Yes, I agree neglect is simply hideous for such beautiful creatures.

    Are you reffering to DD's or PB's Nattylou?

    Have a great day I had better go and face my week, i will try to pop back later!

    *puts mods hat on*

    Making broad,generalised statements that effectively place people offside will not help anyones cause.

    The entire population of unwanted animals does not fall apon registered Breeders shoulders alone .
    Nor people who show thier dogs.

    There is no need to make things personal

    Hi Choppa Chop,

    I am refering to this article, not the entire breeding/showing communities. Why is it personal?

    I have never have degraded RB's or people who show. The people refered to in the article, yes i have a problem with, who wouldnt?

    I have always promoted RB's and Rescue Pets as the greatest way to buy a new family member.

    This article is relevant and simply shows another side, what is wrong with that?

    I am well aware that RB's are not responsible for all animals in pounds and have said so on numerous occasions.

    If you wish delete this thread, but it is a shame to censor something that is actually relevant in this day and age.

    Have a nice day

    Nic

    Hi Nic

    I certainly dont want to delete the thread.

    But there have been some comments made that could very well be taken as 'personal' to not only the RB"s and Show People who are members here , but to thier community as a whole , in fact to even those of us who do wish to someday have a go at showing.

    Try not to paint everyone within those broad brush strokes ok guys.

    Thanks Choppa.

    Nic, I think the below quotes might be indicative of what Choppa is referring to... easily seen to be offensive, especially to those of us who wouldn't do this stuff to our dogs OR our kids in a million years.
    Had some steam coming out of my ears...

    Yes me too, poor little toddlers dressed up in high heels and fishnet stockings, i recently discovered they also use false eyelashes and teeth because their little baby teeth are not "perfect'

    So sad

    Nic
    You're losing me on abbreviations - sorry. Designer dogs?

    I suppose the point being that ANY dog can be subject to neglect (one of the worst forms of neglect being abandonment), regardless of that dog's breeder making attempts to protect it from that during it's lifetime.

    Neglect stems from ignorance and laziness. I don't know how to cure laziness but education is the key to curing ignorance. Legislation and/or public enquiries don't necessarily educate people, although they may offer recourse for authorities. It won't stop animals being neglected.

    The key - educating the masses: Proactivity instead of reactivity.

    Am I making sense? Or do I need some more coffee??

    Just to set everyone off again, I DON"T agree with Clover Moore's submission... and would not support it.

    If i have offended anyone, I apologise.

    I wrote "Agree!! lol Ozeymum" as we had written "Agree!!" to prior posts and i thought it was becoming funny...

    I cant speak for Ozeymum, but took her comments as refering to the people in the article in the OP.

    The internet is not an easy place to write as expression is impossible to see.

    My opinion on dressing tiny children up as adult women remains unchanged. That is my opinion, simple as that, each to their own.

    I am not reffering to neglected animals, but the number being killed in pounds. I believe a public inquiry will enable facts to be gathered to work toward solutions and stop the loss of precious life.

    I am not going to get into Clovers Bill other than saying i understand some have issues with the Bill, though sadened that those people are not prepared to support it overall as it will save endless lives by stopping the commercial farming of dogs, the sale of them in pet shops, over the internet and trading post.

    Can i ask if it is even worth contributing a rescue perspective on this forum?
    Or would you prefer a breeders monopoly?
    It is no wonder that so many in rescue simply walk away....which is so very sad to witness.

    I have been working for twelve months on a project with council to boost adoptions, support people during the adoption process and educate the community. We are getting close to actually begining though i still have an enormous amount of work to do. My time is probably better spent on that and my rescue work, not to mention my family...

    And while everyone involved fight, bicker and protect their own interests, millions more healthy, happy family pets will be killed.

    Oh Nic, of course there is room for Rescue perspectives on this forum.
    I am a Rescuer , many of the members here are rescuers.

    But being rescuers does not mean alienating Registered Breeders or people that Show.

    It is not all about that one issue.

    Please do not take things so personaly

    The people who breed cause their dogs is SO NICE or because they want their kids to see the "miracle of birth" - utter twits
