This whining, fear-mongering, blame-shifting AKC ad is COMPLETE NONSENSE, of course. No doubt it was hatched out by the folks at Edelman, the go-to advertising company for poisoners, liars, foreign dictators, and tax cheats. That's the company the AKC keeps these days, as their registration numbers spiral into the ground, and the red ink starts to flow thick.
Here are the facts:
- There are more dogs in the US today than at any time in history.
- There are more dogs per capita in America today than in any time in history.
- The U.S. leads the world in the number of dogs per capita.
What there ISN'T more of are AKC registered dogs, because the AKC is not about dogs, but about ribbons awarded to people with massive egos, small lives, and not enough skill or talent to bridge the gap.
AKC purebred dogs are more likely to be diseased, deformed, and dysfunctional than non-AKC dogs. That's a fact, as determined by veterinary insurance data. And guess why? It's not hard to understand. The AKC counts ZERO points for health, work, or temperament. Entire breeds are bred and selected for deformity and dysfunction, and the registry requires dogs be inbred within a closed gene pool.
Who wants a deformed, diseased, and defective dog? No one!
Who wants that expense and heart ache? No one!
The result is that AKC registrations have plummeted over 75 percent, even as the number of dogs in America has INCREASED.
Let us CELEBRATE that.
The AKC has made its bed with pet shops and puppy mills, and America has said NO. Let us celebrate that.
Let us celebrate the impeding death of the AKC, which would rather die than adapt. That's an outcome that is Darwin-approved
But the dogs? You ask about the dogs? Excellent! They are doing FINE!!
