I wouldn't be bred, I'd be a pet. I don't have any unique colors, and I am choosy about the people I like. I don't get along with children (actually I like children as long as they don't live with me, lol). I do like other animals as long as they aren't annoying bustards and I am housebroken, tidy and low-energy. I did have some reactivity issues I had to work through, but those are much better now. I have some anxiety problems and congestive heart failure runs on my mom's side of the family. I have a bad bite (needed lots of orthodontic work) and orthopedic issues so I would never win in the show ring. My grandmother on my dad's side seems to have decent genetics. She smoked all her life, although she quit a few years ago, and she's still healthy as a horse save for that wet cough.

My temperament isn't quite sound, I have been known to snap when touched, but if you are one of the people who I am comfortable with, I can be very affectionate.

What kind of parents only feed and buy food for their children until they're 7 years old? For that matter, what 7 year old has the ability to buy groceries and prepare food beyond PB sandwiches, cold cereal, and toast?

I think diabetes, heart disease, and other similar health issues are more due to the US government shoving sugary, no good grains and carbs on us as a "healthy diet lifestyle choice". Utter carp, but most people don't bother to do their research, just like dog food. And between your parents, school, tv, and grocery stores telling you it's "healthy"...well, it's going to be carried through the generations.

Mental issues I definitely believe can be genetic, especially when they happen often enough in one family. Other problems can just be genetically related...for example, small feet run in my family, therefore we have a lot of lower back and leg/foot issues. Conformation of the human variety.

LOL! I'd no doubt be a guardian breed. And I do have the long Fila back legs and the Fila butt. And then there's the ojeriza.

Diabetes, cancers of various sorts, alzheimers and dementia, heart disease, depression, addiction and alcoholism as well as violent behaviours and chronic lying from a certain family member... Yeah, not of breeding stock here.

funny this came up , My step bro and I was discussing his 6 month old and her being born with extremely clubbed feet.

He is healthy as is his family , Her family every female has been born with club feel that is getting worse every generation.

I begged him to not have anymore babies with her faulty genes.

he thought i was joking , but that little babby has had 3 diffrent casts and surgery already and her feet still arent straight.

If my parents were not already spuetered I would insist on it. Horrible health issues.

My sister has one dodgy temperament and I have reactivity issues.

Run free my special angel. I love you and will miss you forever more. You touched everyone with your light.
