Erin Auerbach is a flame-troller.
But don't take my word for it. Go read her piece in The Washington Post entitled, Why I’d never adopt a shelter dog again.
Here's the summary: "I went out and repeatedly got purebred brachycephalic dogs from a shelter and they ended up having health problems. I was a saint for taking care of these dogs, but I will never do it again. Instead, I am going to run out and buy more Pugs, French Bulldogs, and Boston Terriers from breeders because I think their suffering is cute. The French Bulldog I just got is not all farked up; he is from a show breeder but his spots were the wrong color for showing, so I was really lucky! Dogs from show breeders NEVER have cancer, epilepsy, arthritis, or bouts of pancreatitis. They are healthy, due to the fact that dogs must be in perfect health to participate in a dog show!"
Yes, I swear to God that is what this unresearched sack of drivel says.
Or I think it does. It is so poorly written, it is hard to be sure.
This is what newspapers have become? Good riddance to bad meat!
Erin Auerbach is such a poor writer and thinker she has to resort to flame-baiting to get anything in print. Her piece for Salon was entitled "I hope my dogs die soon" which is the kind of piece you write when you have nothing intelligent to say and you are simply an attention whore.
No wonder I do not buy The Washington Post anymore, and rarely check the web site.
As for Ms. Auerbach, I hope she falls a great distance on to a sharp spike. The world is crowded and we need a great deal less of whatever it is she has to offer.
