    started a topic "Breeder" rant

    "Breeder" rant

    Was in local petsmart picking up goodies for the critters. Had my Briar Rose with me, and my 16 year old daughter. Found my 16 year old talking to a petsmart employee who had a merle great dane pup on a leash with her. I over hear my daughter asking her where she got her pup, and the employee says "I'm a breeder" daughter askes oh, do you breed harls ? employee says "well, right now we are breeding rare blue merles" --- I look at my daughter's face, which is now registering surprise, and she politely excuses her self and Briar. We go out to the car and my daughter is going off on back yard breeders and how can she be breeding merles for "rare" colors, doesn't she get it about merles and backyard breeding......

    At first I was dumbstruck. Holy Sh#t!!!! She's actually been listening to me all these years !

    Proud mommy moment.

    Had to share.

    It irks me that people want to breed dogs but too lazy to even do the research on them. Before I even got a great dane i researched everything I could about them. One would think a "breeder" would do the same. Sounds like your daughter is very smart and polite too. I think had it been me I would have made a comment about it. lol

    My daughter was horrified. Later on, Jessie asked me how much great dane pups weighed at birth. I showed her the booklet our breeder made up for us, and the pups weighed between 1.1 lb and 1.5 lbs. Why ? I asked ? Well, because the breeder lady at petsmart told her that the puppys weighed 4 pounds at birth. And when Jess did the math, it didn't make sense that the breeder said the mom had 9 puppies, and that meant that .......

    Smart kid, my daughter. I'm proud !

    That is a very proud mommy moment. You deserve a big pat on the back and so does your daughter.

    It's so heartwarming when teens have a "light bulb" moment, and you realize they just may have been listening to something you said after all.
