Stop backpedaling. You presented it as FACT and made yourself look completely batty. Own up to it, have the grace to look sheepish, and lets move on.

Yes, which is why if my border collie is merle I will name her 'Bleach' for her heritage, and for the ones that were over-bleached and died for her coloring. And here I thought this was common knowledge.

O please now! Let's get all bully-ish and show your a$$ over a statement that clearly has turned out to be a myth, however has been circulating for so long that consideration could possibly been given. Why the need to be all mean? O, internet balls!
