Alot of people on here think that alot of breeders on here are "PB Snobs". Some of them can be quite nice and others are a little more grumpy then some but all in all most people on here are nice.
To all the people who are call a PB snoob. I understand why. Sometimes you guys can get a bit mean when trying to get your point across. You fell very strong about dogs and want the best for them but sometimes you come off harshly.
To the people who call people PB snoobs. Stop yes they do come across as harsh mean and very very rude at times they are nice people and want whats best for dogs. They hear the same stuff over and over and after a wile its hard to be nice after typing the same thing day after day after day.
there are always going to be arguments expecaly with me around (i tend to rub people the wrong way when im joking around and i get upeset when people tell me flat out im wrong in a rude way) but people argueing is always going to happen no matter what. But the jumping at eachother needs to stop.
I like this web page. I like argueing with you guys some times and i love hearing about your dogs and other pets. But to be honest after the first 2 days of being on here i was never going to come back because i noticed alot of people being rude to eachother in alot of posts.
I think this needs to stop so I have an idea. If you guys can go 2 days with out making eachother mad you can beat me with a stick when ever you fell the need. Beating someone with a stick gets alot of stress out and it might help.
That is very funny-That whole stick thing!!! I have had my run in with a lot of "PB snobs". I totally agree that most of them are extremely nice and I enjoy asking questions and getting many intelligent responses, however, I hate that some things are only seen one way by them. I believe that there are some issues that we will all just have to agree to disagree on but I hate when some people have to be so rude, gang up on people, and put down other people simply because there is a difference of opinions.
Yah i know people can be rude but you have to understand they have very strong feelings about this and have to hear about it alot. That would be like a christan going to a chat room and hearing nothing but "the devil rocks" Or "god is evil" When you fell strongly about something and have to hear people doing things they dont think is right every day its enough to make you mad and you wil start snapping at people.
Yes, however, I believe using generalizations like that is a form of being prejudice!!! I may not know as much as them about animals and may have a different opinion than them, but that does not make me a bad person.
Im not saying anyone is bad im trying to look at it from both sides and try to get people to play nice with eachother. If i offended you in any way im sorry. I have said it befor and il lprobly say it alot but i dont come on here to offend anyone. I do come across the wrong way sometimes but i dont mean to.
MonkeyButt- I didn't mean that I thought you were being prejudice I just meant the PB snobs you were sticking up for. I know they don't really appreciate me because I have a puggle and love her. I understand that some people are abusing breeds and only selling puggles to make a quick buck, but does that make me a bad person for having one? No! Am I wrong for liking this new breed? No!!!
Oh i didnt mean to stick up for them. I love mix breed dogs and puggles are quite cute. I just want everyone to get along. I was trying to explain both side but i probly got side tracked and forgot what I was saying.
My friend breeds bich-tzus and i dont get mad at her i wouldnt have one because of all the hair and i dont ahve alot of time to take care of it right. But i dont get mad thats shes breeding them. I think its fine as long as the dogs are cared for and they go to good homes and if a home is is not found they should be willing to keep them. Not everyone wants to show dogs some people just want pets.
That is my exact point. Some people just want a dog to love a dog! I understand that alot of mixed breeds end up in shelters, but so do purebreds. I believe that most puppy mills have more purebred dogs than mixed breeds. So if a person is evil enough to mistreat an animal it's not going to matter whether the dog is purebred or not they will mistreat him/her just because they are a bad person.
Hmmm... I might be considered one since I don't agree with the deliberate breeding of mixes and (because of the number of dogs in need of homes already) have really narrow ideas about what dogs should be bred and the things a breeder should do first. I'm not a breeder though. I adopt. Though I would say something more like "Sorry for your loss" when someone came on and said their pet died, regardless of what kind of breed or mix it was.
But what does the PB stand for? I'm guessing the B is for breeder?

The thing is that there are only a few people on here that only have purebreed dogs.
Most of have purebreed and mixed dogs at home. Or have had mixed dogs in the past.
I had four mixed breeds in my life. The last one was just put down.
Those of us the do breed or really love purebreed dogs just don't like the breeding practices of designer breeders, byb, or puppy mill breeders.
So when we get post everyday or every other day of my dog just went into heat what do I do, how long does it last.
Then you got the ones of my dog is pregant what do I do. How long does it last.
It does get old when all they need to do is look at the past pages.
Then half of these people are just trolls looking for a fight. So I think right now a lot of people are being rude just thinking every new person is just trying to start something.
I persoanly am not sure why they are called trolls. I think Imp is a more appropriate name my self.
You will find if you stay with us. That this is a partarn. We have a period were everything goes smooth and then comes the time of the Imps and everyone gets defensive, rude and mean.
Kind of like a river. You have nice calm water, then you have moving water, then you have rapids. Then you go over the water fall into a calm pool of water. You sit there for a while then you get swept back into the moving water and the cycle starts all over again.
We should be close to the waterfall here real soon.
I'm with you on this one, Shiney. I'm about as far from a snob as you can be. I like both purebreds and mixes. However, just because you recently lost a dog, that makes it ok to intentionally breed two mixes? I don't get it. Think I would have to agree with the original poster, or wherever that thought came from. There's plenty of dogs/pups out there (both purebred AND mixes) so why intentionally breed more mixes just because you lost yours? After all, the mix is not going to be a clone of the one you lost.
I don' think there is a single perosn on here who has anyhting against mix breed dogs. We don;t like the people breeding purbreed dogs to get a mixed breed dog.Or jsut some mutt to another. Hell, I don't like 70% of the people breeding purebreed dogs!
I have a mix,I have always had one but they are always rescues from soem idiots letting a mistake happen in their back yard.
It is my belief that when you are very knowledgeable on a subject that you should share that wealth with others. Instead of being annoyed at people's questions- share your wisdom!!! Maybe it's because I am a teacher and a mother of two that I enjoy teaching others but I feel it is the right thing to do! God knows there are some people out there who need good guidance this may be their only place to find it.
I do share what I know. That mix breeding is not a good thing,its puppymills etc. Yet people get upset about it. I think education is the key with animals,thats why the people who know why mix breeds are bred and still buy them need to know what they are doing and not be ohhed and awwwed. How you cna have knowledge about puppymills and responcible breeding and still support it is beyone me,but maybe this is because I am in the medical field and have a grasp on all the stuff:) I teach too, in a very no bs way.

Well Monkeyeatbutt , after 1 day here I thought I was at the wrong forum. I got chewed up over my opinion of dog food!LOL! All the differnt breeds,differnt food products and people coming together from all parts of the country ..you would think someone is entitled to an opinion..NOT HERE! So I toughened my skin and just answer the topic and not the others that chime in. Well unless they're treating me kindy. Thats one good thing about computers..you can turn them off when the irritate you(unlike husbands,children and bosses!LOL!)
its funny no matter what you click on there is always some one wanting to bring up pb and mixes . we all have our opinion what what type of dogs some like pb some like mixed i happen to like both i have a min pin and i know i probably will get something said but i also have a puggle ok let me have it i know its not right to mix these two types of dogs and i will say its my choice i just get tired of reading bashing between breeds let people chose what they want most people just want pets to love
