    Any forum that treats someone like that is just not worth it. Just thought I'd put my two cents worth in.

    Now now DR - tell us what you really think - I can be a downright bitch at times. No point in diguising it - everyone here has seen it. However, yes, I do think of the dogs first - doesn't everyone?

    LOl, Yep, you can be. I was just feeling polite at the time. LOL.I would like everyone to think of the dogs first but unfortunately that doesn't always happen.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    You have a big heart Occy and this is one thing I have always liked about you.

    Sometimes you are but when necessary just like most of us.

No offence to those who show, but it is a cut throat life to follow. I gave it up after twenty years so I could enjoy my dogs for a change. I've experienced both worlds.
    Why on earth did you have to treat your showdogs in this way? If you didn't enjoy showing, why do it for 20 years?

    I've experienced three different doggy worlds. Worked in Welfare for many years, worked in boarding for a long time and showed and occasionally bred dogs for over 20 years.

    All my dogs have been treated the same, be it a rescued mixed breed or a top show dog. I've shown a Border Collie, Pugs and Deerhounds. All but one of the Deerhounds slept on the bed (there wasn't room for 4 Pugs and 2 Deeries at once). My dogs have always been companions first and I have enjoyed every one of them.

    As for the cut throat life of the show world - this is something I did not experience or perhaps I just let it go over my head.

    I found fellow exhibiters on the whole to be nice people. Some I formed close friendships with, others remained aquaintances only and a few I avoided. Just like in real life. Same set up as in the office, factory, hospital or where ever you happen to work.

    I have had my nose put out of joint on another site which I won't mention, only to say it's the biggest oes site on the internet. (You didn't get that from me). They like to push the desexing opinion down everyones throat but if you look up in the puppies due soon section they all have pups on the way!!!!!Huh!! Do as I say...... I wouldn't let it get to you. It doesn't matter what the subject or where you go in life, you will always get people like that. I just sit back and take it all in! lol. If you love your dogs your worth a million bucks in my book!. p.s. (that's why I'm on this site, they are all american, they seem to have a problem with Aussies).
    Another one who doesn't like Americans. Methinks it is more like some Aussies having problems with the Yanks rather than the other way round. Most of the Americans I've met seem to have a lot of time for Aussies.

    I find Americans more friendly than Aussies online most of the time

    Always happy to share views view Anne but if you call a white gsd a different breed then you need to prove to me how it is a different breed. for example - working line sheps are very different from show line sheps - one can easily tell them apart usually - but still the same breed. Oh and black sheps too - same breed, different colour

    Not sure the debate is about them being a 'different' breed... most of the debates are about them being called a white shepherd...so they took their white sheps and differentiated them by calling them a different breed.

    As long as breeding is done with genetic health in mind, I dont care what colour a dog is.' As long as registries and controls are kepts, I donlt care how many new breeds are introduced.

    There are brindle Pugs in the US in high numbers. They are considered to be 'not a Pug'. I consider them to be 'not the original Pug' but after many generations, they are a Pug.

    I'd rather a healthy happy dog of brindle colouring being called a Pug (of several generations, not a cross and this is important) than a Pug that has genetic faults that are killing the breed.

    It is the state breed associatations that rules this dog can only be this and this dog can only be that.... and it is also the breed associations who allow registered breeders to sell to pet shops and who allow registered breeders to breed dogs that will die early in life or life a live of issues because of poor breeding practices.

    Until these associations actually decide to make their members look at bad breeding practices I will never support them and their idiotic notions of what can be called a breed and what can't.

    I guess I am an independant thinker.....

    Problem with the white sheps is that they started with little organisation - i even had one prominent member ask me to rescue a dog from a shelter undesexed so they could add it to their breeding scheme.
