I think that's a broad generalization against anyone who doesn't own a purebred. Neither one of my girls is purebreds, but I have nothing against them nor do I think they're boring. I just love mixed breeds, I was RAISED with mixed breeds and therefore have a preference for them.

Then again I don't own a designer breed either, just plain old mutts.

It is, but a generalization is just that, and there will always be exceptions.
I was accused of having a purebred to stroke my own ego, so I could show off just how close to "the standard" my dog is. Basically because he is a purebreed that must mean he's no different than a fancy designer accessory.
But I don't really see how somebody with that opinion would really see themselves as any better. As if having a dog who is NOT a purebreed was some kind of badge about how UNconcerned they were with their "accessories?"
*shrug*

Life is way too short to spend it getting all up in arms worrying about what other people think of me and my little dog.

they aparently had the dogs 101 chinese crested show on this weekend and i missed it, but from what my mother was spouting off about what she "learnt" on the show im not impressed...

they said the breed "doesnt" bark...yes, yes they do...there not barkers in general, and when they do bark its more of a yodle/song than a typical dog back, but when you get them started or they think they have a reason...

or that the chinese crested is "origionally part chihuahua"
mabe the modern day chinese crested has chihauhua lines when origionally brought this direction to make them a little smaller and stockier...but chihuahuas are from south america, chinese cresteds are from Africa, and genetic testing have proved them closly related to the basenji rather than any of the worlds other hairless breeds/toy breeds (most of which are south american)

still gonna see if i can find the episode online so i can see what was actually said, mommy tends to recall things in strange ways lol.

i do agree they should have started with AKC regonized, then move onto the UKC, then ontop the rarer breeds...
once thy have all the pure bred dogs, then move onto the mixed breeds...i at least hope they made it clear that the "chiweenie" is NOT a breed...

I know that some of you havent gotten to see your breeds yet but im with you i had to wait an entire season to be done with, and not see the siberian husky which is a pretty popular breed but they did have them on the begining of the second season.Your breed will come just be patient.

I wasn't talking about everyone. I was talking specificaly about people who go out and pay thousands for a designer mutt. A lot of them have the mindset that I just described... Sadly. I've only owned two purebreds In my life. The rest were mutts and crossbreeds.

I don't catch all of the episodes of Dogs 101. Is there a list online that covers the breeds that they have featured?

I've yet to see either that show or Breed All About It feature Belgians or APBTs/AmStafs, but perhaps I missed those.

I've only watched Dogs 101 a couple of times, and I can't say as I was overly impressed with the two episodes I did watch... but they were good for just the general public I guess who only want/need minimal but important information. I completely get what you mean though about featuring designer breeds as opposed to purebreds that haven't been featured yet... not quite the same circumstance, but I ran into the same sort of situation in a calendar store a week ago. All sorts of designer breeds while a whole bunch of purebreds haven't been featured yet.

I don't mind that some rare breeds are featured on the show though, as long as they're minimal. It would be more beneficial to have the more popular breeds featured first.
