When it costs as much to "adopt" as to buy, it may as well be called buying. It's maybe a little sketchy that the sanctuary knows the sire's breed on this mix for sure. So whoever started this litter seems to have done it intentionally. And since t...

I was the one who suggested Bailey cite his sources, and plagiarism was not the issue at all. Just that it can beef up a point if there's an acknowledged authority behind it. Sometimes a vet student has access to "medline"-type sites that offer ent...

There's not enough evidence of evolution, either, to constitute proof if you're a determined creationist. Geneticists who work with breeds are like expert witnesses in a trial: they are there to say what you want them to, so the breed club can quot...

Vets ina pet practice are knowledgeable about the disorders they repeatedly see, diagnose and treat, or that they refer to specialists. I'm in Metro DC, and the vets that pet owners talk to do treat a lot of dogs. Not just for inherited disorders b...

Bailey, it might help if you cite your sources. Also, the points you raise have been pretty much dealt with in the earlier posts of this thread.

HuskyHauler, you've bred a lot of dogs, both breeds and mixes, which informs your opinion about their health, and gives you confidence to say what you think on the topic. A veterinarian has surely treated many times more disorders, inherited and ot...

Does anyone else think Seasonal Affective Disorder might be part of why Christmas puppies are so popular? A lot of people suffer from it worst at precisely that time of year and on some level might be wanting a puppy to cheer themselves up. We don'...

I've heard this from vets many times: the mutt vigor, not necessarily the Science Diet. Considering how many animals a vet sees over the course of a career, who would have a better vantage for a well informed opinion, with less reason for bias one ...

Newspaper ads run all year long for the more popular breeds, at least in larger metro areas. It seems to me that if you see a problem and want to brainstorm possible fixes, it's helpful to try to work with, rather than against, the grain of human n...

The question was, would MOST people wait 2 years for a dog. Pointing out that you yourself have, doesn't answer the question. A test sample of one never does. Breeders Club operations that breed from show quality dogs can often say they sell only t...
