I with beloz...
I really dont see why people shouldnt be able to breed or own their own cute cross bred mutt, if that is what they want to own.
And it is quite possible to be ignorant even with all this technology. Not everyne sits on the internet googling stuff, and even then sometimes people dont know what to look for. To assume everyone should be educated because we have "google" is extremely ignorant.
Yes, I agree we live in a throwaway society and that needs to change, but I dont think people shoudl stop buying the dog they want because of it.
In regards to the leopard skin...my OH would love one. Not something I am into but if he could get one he would.
