Donate Dictionaries to the bully community. Please.

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
Romeo x2
Godzuki 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?


  1. I think they need a basic book on genetics MUCH more than a dictionary. Of course, if they don't understand the definition of the word 'exclusive' (instead of 'inbred'), then even the most basic book on genetics will likely be incomprehensible to them. Oh, that long word there, in case any of you wacked-out breeders are reading - it means "you wouldn't be able to understand."

  2. I doubt they are here reading (yet). If they were you would see a lot of Anonymous comments spelled in gibberish with "hater" used a lot :p

  3. I googled these names. The websites that have these dogs in their pedigrees - who look like what you are calling Am Bullies - are all being advertised and sold as American Pit Bull Terriers.
