CL Asshat Rant - Studly Shih Tzu

When I run across ads like this and haven't got anything to say other than *Asshat* that's a problem. I always have something to say!

This one wants to breed their one year old Shih Tzu. There are a few things I'm going to point out ...

Why are you looking to breed this dog? What makes him "Studly"?

What are you trying to gain/prove? You are obviously looking to get something out of this or you wouldn't be actively advertising his "services", so what is it?

What do you mean "taking care of since birth"? The sentence doesn't really make much sense ... Did you bottle feed him?

Why is "Great coat and personality" a better selling feature than something like "great conformation and registered"?

Why do you want to breed with Shih Tzus, Maltese or Poodles ... Why do you want mutts?

Why is this "Needed Asap"? Is he dying?

Do you really think we need more of these sorts of dogs around in this economic time?

Why Why Why?? That's all I have today. Questions. Maybe someone else would like to answer them today? I'm a bit tired.

Which brings me to the next important thing I'd like to bring your attention to ... I made an asshat award as was suggested by one of my readers. I had wanted it to be in the form of a trophy, but had difficulty making this work. (If anyone wants to take a shot at this, feel free!) Sorry for not being all that wonderfully original - I can't take credit for the picture, I did find it online and I don't know who originally photoshopped it since it's everywhere so I don't know where to give credit.

Anyway, I am going to bestow the first ever DogsDeserveFreedom ASSHAT Award to the owner of this shih tzu. Contratulations. You are an ASSHAT

Poor little dog, he needs bred, ASAP.

He has a disaese, that makes him need to be bred, right away??

I wonder if there's something REALLy weirdly wrong about him.

gah. bozo-brain owner.

Hi. Just found your blog. I agree with you, these people are asshats! I wish I would see more ads people to take in strays as opposed to pure breds. I feel like I run a stray dog rest area at my house, and it pains me to see so many homeless dogs. Anyway, nice site. Bye!
