Why aren't there any dog training facilities/classes closer and at times when I can attend? Please? I don't want to drive two hours to go to an hour long class. Frustrating.

That isn't entirely true all the time, Izze was from a breeder who did not health test or anything like that beyond hearing testing (can't work a deaf dog) she was from real working parents on a real working ranch (cattle) & only cost $100. The breeder only had 2 dogs he bred from & only had 1 litter a year, she was one of the healthiest dogs I ever had.

But if they aren't health testing, they aren't reputable and julee's point still stands. IMO, Izze came from a byb.

Why in God's green earth is it so freaking hard for some people to communicate? Really? I don't need to know every detail of your life, but for the love of God, if you're going to be gone for more than 12 hours it would be nice to know! Not only because I have mild anxiety when I don't know "the plan", but because it makes me feel like I'm not worth the three seconds out of your day to send me a text saying even something as simple as, "Hey, I'm heading out, be back late tonight."

I have about had it.

Snooooow. So much (10ish inches likely).

There are slide-offs and accidents on my side of town and I don't know if I should go to work tomorrow. It's supposed to snow more during the morning and I don't feel like battling rush hour.

But I also don't want to be the lazy one. Ugh. What to do. Technically, I don't have any deadlines for tomorrow or Tuesday.. So it wouldn't be too bad.

I don't think it matters, a great dog is still a great dog regardless if she was from a BYB or not.

I don't think it is as black & white as that , I think there are good BYBs & BAD BYBs

Isn't it pretty common for working breeders not to do extensive health testing?
