PPCLI Guy said:Just saying that you are, as you surmised, most likely wrong. I have two purebred German Shepherds, a male and a female. They are both from strong bloodlines, and are extraordinary specimens of the breed. Both are neutered. I, and most military dog owners I know, have no interest in breeding or showing them. I enjoy their company, and their size and training provide both my wife and I some modicum of comfort during my frequent absences. The opportunities were definitely there - my male in particular has generated many queries about breeding from him. Again, I was never interested in the "business of making and selling more dogs". I just enjoy the company of large and competent dogs.
I have to be honesty, the tone of your post is more than just a tad confrontational. You made some very large assumptions and worked yourself into a fever-pitch. Nowhere does the OP state that he is running a business. Rather, he is concerned that the rules have changed mid APS, which is something that I understand.
It may be time to take this one down a notch - it appears to be getting quite personal.
Nope, not worked up. No fever pitch. That's why the caveat at the front. If it is in fact just a big dog, I'll withdraw from the conversation.
If it is in fact a breeder, I'll stand by my comments. It's the way I read it. Internet stuff and all.
You can be as honesty as you want. You call it confrontational, that's just your opinion.
I don't consider it such. It's not personal either.
It's not the taxpayers job to move anyone's business, if that's what it is. That's all, plain and simple.
Glad you enjoy the company of your big dogs.
