Asshat Rant - Pure "Bread"?

Here's something you see VERY often in dog ads and it kills me each and every time! Have you ever seen an ad that says the dog is Pure Bread? I just want to say ... Hello! It's PURE BRED asshat! Bread is a type of FOOD - you know, like multigrain? Or whole wheat? *headdesk*

Here are a few ads and they just drive me crazy.

Here's a "pure bread" chocolate lab. She's 2, not spayed and according to the current owners is an "Old Soul". I'm not going to get into that one ...

Ok, seriously? This person has 3 kids and has decided the family doesn't have time for 2 dogs. Why?

Why can't the 3 kids help out? I'm sure your kids could each spend 30 minutes a day with the dogs - and hey, guess what? If you couple that with the 30 minutes each of the adult owners could spend with the dog, then that's TONS! Why, that's 2.5 hours a day of one-on-one time each ... that's more than most dogs get.

What are you teaching your kids? Disposable pets. We don't want them so we find an excuse to get rid of them. Or perhaps you're just teaching them how to be lazy, self-righteous asshats - because it's "better" for the dogs to get rid of them.

Here's a "Full Bread" Bichon. So first of all, I don't think this guy would be a multigrain variety if it really is a Bichon - maybe more like that white whole wheat bread they have out now - you know, the one that is whole wheat but looks and tastes just like white bread?
Come on buddy, couldn't you write more than two lines about the dog you've had for ... how many years? This poor little guy is 13 years old and the owners have decided they don't have time to "love it enough".
Honestly, your old 13 year old Bichon does NOT "want a new home". He in fact really just wants to laze around in the home of the people who love him and just be.
Good grief. That is the most common (and in my opinion, WORST) excuse to get rid of your senior dog. Do you REALLY think your old dog wants to be up-rooted and thrust into a new home, new routine with new people who smell and sound funny?
Why are people so afraid to keep their dog until it is time to euthanize it? It's one of the worst things you could do is get rid of your dog so you don't have to take it for that last vet trip.
*headdesk headdesk headdesk*

Holy doodle. No words for 13 YEAR OLD??

I hate those ads. Bad, bad bad ads/people/brainz.

Gee, the two dogs are so much work. Who knew dogs were work, and needed attention?The FullBreaded Chocolate Looks sick. Quiet? At TWO? WTF they have done to make her quiet, is a skeery thought in itself..

Poor critters.
Too many dogs, not enough fully trained people.

We are 2 Maltese dogs and we must say Two Paws Up! for this truly outstanding point, that the well bread has nothing to do with baked goods, which are something for the sandwiches, and we are dogs. Thank you for our standing postings! Love, Your PaLs, LuLu and LoLLy!

It's us again and we would also like to add, espechally sintz LoLLy is a rescue who came from some very troubled circumstantsiz, that we very much agree about the humans and their sad attitude about their doggy. Two Paws Down, Sadly yours, LuLu and LoLLy.

Well, at least w/dogs, the "bread" ones are unlikely to end up as the center part of a sandwich as some of the "bread" horses do (after being shipped to Canada or Mexico for slaughter & then the meat sent overseas).
And to dump a 13 yr old dog--there just are no words for that.

OldMorgans.....So Funny. Lucky dog to be pure 'bread'....why didn't I think of

DogsDeserveFreedom said...

All good points.

OldMorgans, true enough! I guess those dogs should count their blessings, eh?

Dog_geek said...

Pure bread - bah! That's worse than the add I saw for the pair of "Great Dames" for sale.

If you think that's bad hang out on in the Dog section of Yahoo! Answers.

full blooded
"I want to know how to bread my dogs"- this usually results in several people giving out breading recipes.
"I breeded my two dogs"
