If you think that it has been bad so far with the NKE, you ain't seen nothing yet.
Nostra-Honest predicts for 2009, one hell of a battle between the breeding industry and us. Winograd is not the problem now, the combination of him and the breeders has replaced him. Winograd was on his way out the door but the breeders shut it and called him back in. As announced with PetPac, they intend to use the Whino to push legislation and to do away with current laws protecting animals.
All that we have fought for and obtained is about to be challenged because of this association.
If you have never been in a legislative meeting or a city council meeting when a new law regarding animals is presented and have never seen the response from the breeding community, let me tell you now, it is not a pretty sight. You look at these breeders and wonder why they have no heart for these issues. You know that all they want to do is protect their illegal and immoral incomes.
After reading the how the BBC is dropping Crufts because of how the industry has diluted the breeds, I realize now that I was wrong to say there is such a thing as a "responsible breeder". Same thing is happening in this country. I have a friend who found a bulldog, just a short distance from a bulldog breeder, who had just been turned loose and why? Because it was a mutant, didn't even look like a bulldog except for body structure and that was off too. Only a mother could love the look of this dog, but he was terribly sweet. Prone to many skin infections, health problems but she loves him unconditionally. The breeder admitted to this dog coming from his place, but asked her not to tell anyone, it would hurt his business to let people know he is breeding mutants.
I stand by this statement. DON'T BREED OR BUY AS LONG AS SHELTER PETS DIE
If you don't agree with this, then get off this blog. This is not the blog for you if you support breeding in any shape, form, or fashion at this point. Call it radical if you chose, but I am trying to save animals, what are you trying to do?
