They really are gorgeous dogs, such pretty faces and sad eyes. When you find the right breed, you just know.
There are some breeders who are only in it for the ribbons, but the majority do it because they love the dogs.
I would never rehome a dog just because it didn't win at shows (I have 2 desexed pets here to prove it!) Mine are all house dogs, 2 of them sleep on the bed (despite my OH's objections ).
They are family.
I do hope you don't take my ranting to heart, I get rather passionate about breeding questions.
