I think we as small ethical breeders are the sheep and the Judas Goat is the Animal Libs/Oscars flaw eager to get us to think that our interests are the same.
I will not be led by these fanatics who view ALL Breeders as one and the same.
Trouble is,we all are the same.Ethics aren't excluse to ANKC.
As long as ANKC breeders can't see that,a broader view of ethics acceptable to all interests can't be reached.
Every ones too busy trying to point the finger elsewhere and theres no Body to represent all interests equally.
Whether breeders like it or not,there is a whole industry associated with dogs in the community and we are part of it.
Edited to add, and affected by all legislation we ask for, or don't study very carefully and and comment on.
Yep but I don't think everyone is too busy pointing the finger - there is lots going on behind the scenes.
Its just stuff you cant talk about here.
