Oh I know. But, it makes them money, so they don't care what they call it, as long as the cash keeps rolling in.

On a lighter note...Murphie is a rescued mutt, but when someone asks what breed she is I say "oh, she's an all Canadian", and its usually gets a good chuckle. For some reason, 'mutt' is seen as sort of a pejorative or substandard, as in "oh she's JUST a mutt". Don't know why and have never understood it.
She's all good dog as far as I'm concerned

Associations. I assume it's an organization created by those who felt left out of the AKC, CKC, UKC, NKC and any other KC's out there because their dog is an overpriced mutt and they want some sort of recognition for that.

Exactly. Just because they make thier own little organization and list mutts as breeds doesnt make those "designer dogs" actual breeds. Does anyone agree? Do they even have a breed standard?

The only breed standard is that they be cute when they are born so they can sell em for big bucks.

What papers? Are they from the AKC or the UKC or the CKC? Papers don't mean crock if they dont come from a recognized NATIONAL kennel club. And even then they dont' say anything about the validity of the temperment or the health of the dog in question.

I have a mutt. He's a pit bull - dachshund cross. Very sweet, has skeletal problems mostly in his hips and in his legs. I paid $40 for him. But because all these cutesy names are so popular these days for mutts, when people ask me what he is? I say he's a "Mongolian Poochie Dog."

I get asked repeatedly where they can get a Mongolian Poochie Dog like mine.
