    I wish people would listen and not suddenly jump on the "they're attacking all breeders" bandwagon. I agree that the most guilty are the loudest to disagree with the program. The most guilty are the loudest, period. I watched the program as was appalled at what I saw - and knowing, in the pit of my stomach, that the US is just as guilty. It's sick and twisted, and I will do everything I can to spread the word regarding these issues... thank you for bringing this program to the attention of your fans Victoria.

    Oh...and...

    As for the upcoming Holiday podcast - where would you possibly get an idea to do that? 😉

    Love the podcasts! Please keep doing them. Fascinating to hear about Pedigree Dogs Exposed 2. I will be interested in seeing it. I sincerely hope it leads to changes.

  • Thoughtful, respectful responses to a thoughtless disrespectful practice of breeding for vanity and physical discomfort. It gives me great pain to hear a dog gasping and wheezing to simply breath, for owner enjoyment and status. Well done, you guys, for an amazing discussion on a practice that needs to be halted, for the dogs' sakes.

    Woof! Only Positives!

    What a powerful movie, "Pedigree Dogs Exposed". I could only get through about 20 minutes before I just couldn't watch anymore.

    As for the muscles in a dogs ears, I had a cinnamon Chow named Cajun and he would lie flat on the ground "sleeping" and you could see his ears twitching and moving around like little independent radar receivers. He did miss anything.
