We shall not succeed unless we first reorder our priorities -- the idols of breed purity and extreme breed type must be dethroned.
What does everyone think that means?
My opinion is clear on the thread about breeding father to daughter (is it a good thing?) and the genetic problems that will surface. I'm not going to say it again about having the head up the butt...
Needless to say, the rank and file GSD show breeders managed to remove Dr. Riser from his office and rejoin the pack of lemmings headed for the cliff, but their greed, power, arrogance and stupidity does not make them right.
I recently came across an old book of photos of different dog breeds. It was published around 1915. Two thngs hit home: one, the way many of the breeds have changed in appearance, becoming more exaggerated over the years, and two, many of the breeds pictured in the book are now extinct.
Lemmings? Cliff? I think Jim pegged it.
