Default Dogs 101- slight rant

I like the show mostly but this bothers me- they have a show for chiweenies and still NO papillon show! What the heck!? I can understand a labradoodle show since they're pretty popular and some people are trying for breed status but a chiweenie? Really?

And then how do they pick breeds? It's cool they do things like the lagotto and peruvian inca orchid but wouldn't it be more practical to do more popular breeds first?

"Peruvian inca orchid"? Isn't that a flower?

I was hoping they would go through all the ACK accepted breeds and then start on the none accepted and rarer ones before ever doing something called a "chiweenie"

Me too! I know there are other pretty popular breeds that haven't been done yet too (like Shelties for example). But they're already doing chiweenies. I don't get it.

I know... The Pug one was very stereotypical too...

Why do designer breeds? Labradoodles i can see, they're nearly a breed in Australia, but the other designer breeds have no purpose!

Bah... It'll never end...

PS. Papillions are on my list of dogs i want to own, they're so pretty... I wonder how they'd get along with my Pugs.

I have a friend with two pugs and two paps, they get along swimmingly.

Not Dogs 101, but I remember watching this episode on Japanese Chins on this show when it use to air on AP.
