    You wish "they" would crack down on breeding? And by they, I suppose you mean government people... Is there anything left that Americans don't want their government to provide some horrible answer to?

    Please don't make that a generalization - I'm an american who most certainly *doesn't* want more meddling.

    I'm hoping "They" referred to AKC and other animal breeding and eugenics groups.

    While I know that to most Americans it's the only place people live on the planet, surprisingly in fact there are loads of others continents and islands the world over where people participate in lots of activities that Americans also do, including MTB and access the internet. By "they" I mean governments and kennel clubs the world over, because clearly people cannot make sensible decisions for themselves on just about anything it would seem and have to rely on agencies and such to tell them what to do, if not they just go wild. If people had any sort of self control the human population would not have doubled in the last 50 years alone.

    Let's replace "self control" with "government control" and see how long it takes for them to make MTB'ing illegal, ya right!

    My bad, seeing that you're' from Barbados I can see why you want fornication heavily regulated with all the deaths there due to aids.
    Sadly, if people like freedom, part of that means they have to endure some acts that they find personally offensive, such as breeding of dogs. There are groups here in the US that are doing a lot to try and push for more government regulation on dog breeding, but sadly, these regulations will have a large affect on how the responsible breeders go about their business, and I hate using the word "business" because these breeders do not profit. While I sympathize with the dogs in the pounds, and I personally donate time and money to those organizations, it's also very positive what some breeders are doing to improve the health and temperaments of pure bred dogs and it would be sad if that progress had to come to a halt.
    This argument doesn't even mention the fact that the majority of countries on our planet are staring down their own personal debt crisis so when I hear of people suggesting that the government step in and add more negatives to the balance sheets, I find it a little disconcerting. And that will be last post on this since this should be about doggies and pictures of doggies!

    I have posted my girl here before, but she's just that awesome. Shiba Inu Pit Bull mix, and a bundle of energy and joy. She loves getting out on the trails, but mostly for hiking. She runs circles around me, so hopefully taking her on the bike will help her release more energy.

    Not exactly sure how or why your first little sentence was snuck in there, but since you took so much time to search for that info I'll reply.....Since I know you searched to come up with these great facts, you might also have checked and realised that in the US, blacks only make up 14% of the population, but account for over 46% of the HIV/AIDs cases, so on an island with over a 93% black population, heavily dependent on tourism, mainly US it's no wonder the numbers are so high. The highest cause of transmission is through heterosexual exchange, women having the highest %, i.e. tourist based prostitution as we have cruise and warships coming through here all the time, deduce from that what you will.

    As to the actual subject of lowering/stopping dog breeding and instead fostering more adoptions of the billions of homeless animals out there, that is money well spent IMHO. As to the "good" breeders don't make money and do it for the love If they really cared the "good" breeders would self regulate and get together and help to eradicate breeding farms and bad breeding practices, since of course we know you guys don't need regulating right

    It's been a few years since this shot, but at least I'm not posting an argument about overbearing governments wanting to regulate the over breeding of anti-American dogs with aids... (hint, please stay on topic, or take the argument elsewhere.)

    our mutt

    Gee, we'll add one trail mutt photo. If you go to her blog, you can see a bunch more. Since she's a dog that doesn't speak, its mostly pictures.

    Really? This is what you choose to make a stand on? The guy has a dog, likely with some pitt mix in it, he's proud of his dog, and you are going to invest this much effort in arguing the point?

    Do you have a dog? Go take him for a ride, he's feeling neglected, you're spending too much time on the computer.

    There are plenty of groups you can donate money to that are working to help find homes for homeless pets. You are free to do so. I do this myself, my breeder friends do the same as well as pull animals from kill shelters and provide them food and shelter until they find their forever home.
    "Good breeders," as you call them, do not have the authority to stop backyard breeders and breeding farms, from letting their dogs have sex. I don't know how you think they can just team up together and make other people behave a certain way, but it simply is just not possible. Your proposition would be as successful as the war on drugs or the war on terror because it is as ludicrous of an idea.
