Default Is that your dog or a car?

How do you feel about pet owners getting rid of the family dog to trade up to a shiny new "better" model? I guess I will never understand it. We've all seen it on various forums, I'm sure. Pet owner starts out with a lower caliber dog, typically a rescue or BYB model, possibly a pet quality dog from a responsible breeder. Pet owner then gets bitten by the show or performance bug, might even add a "better" dog to the family in the process. Now suddenly, the very loved family dog just isn't good enough. It's too this, or too that, maybe not enough blank. Family dog is now needs to be placed.

I just don't get it. How can somebody love a dog like it is a member of the family for years, and then just decide that it isn't good enough? Every dog that I've ever had has been not enough this, or not enough that, or the wrong blank. But, instead of placing them, they get neutered and stay. They might not be EXACTLY what I was hoping for, but all of them have had their place in the family.
