No pics this time, but I recently saw a gentleman post his new puppy with great pride, explaining earnestly that her pedigree was VERY exclusive, and then proceeded to tell me what was in it.
Black Ace x2
Monster Jojola x2
and a few other things that are directly related to all the above dogs, all 2 or 3 times. These are grossly overused dogs-- last time I checked, Mr Ace has offspring numbering in the thousands, and most of those are inbred on him so 90% of his grandprogeny have him 2 or 3 or 4 times in there, or all of the above dogs 5 times each, or something similar.
I tried very politely to explain that this was not exclusive, as thats not what the word exclusive meant, and was met with hostility and a very long rant about how much bone this puppy has, and how her head is amazing, and her eyes are set very far apart "separation" (newbies seem to think this means the head will be very big when they get older) and a bunch of stuff that didn't have anything to do with exclusive pedigrees.
Don't you love ignorance?
