asking what breeder?
For those on this site who have purebred dogs that are from solid, respectable breeders - i want to ask a question.
I just picked a breeder and put a deposit down on a puppy (a $1500 puppy).
Now, when acquaintances (sp?) ask me what breeder i got her from - i think that's a personal question because:
A. then you can find out how much the dog cost via website.
B. because people will judge your dog based on what breeder you got it from and the bloodlines it has.
Before the internet, this wouldn't be an issue.
This is a dog to be used in a performance sport so bloodlines are real significant to some people. I love all dogs and am not looking for something that will take me into national competitions or anything even close to that.
Am i being too defensive? I just don't appreciate that question from people. Dogs should be judged on what they do and not who their "family" is.
what do you guys think?
