'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'

(HH Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda)

Menoloopal Tuesday

This is the day I let off a bit of steam about some case of ignorance, stupidity or just plain absurdity.  I leave you to decide which category best fits.

Yesterday I mentioned the designer pet business.

WHAT?!  Is Mother Nature's infinite variety of and diversity within species not sufficient?  There's enough natural "inter-selection " without Man having to poke his finger into the pie.

The very worst are those who manage to couch their advertising in terms of "we are doing you such a favour in producing a disease free/allergen free/hair-drop free anything you want it to be variety".  Why? It's false advertising, that's why.  Just ask your vet. What's it all about?  Greed.  No let's make that capitals.  GREED.  Further, it feeds the tendency to think of pet as accessory.  Therefore disposable.

I am totally menolooopable about this practice.  I can see nothing positive about it in the least and it damages credibility of registered, caring breeders of established species.

Look, if an 'accident' happened, okay fine.  So you got a mixed-breed.  Don't call it 'Handbag Teacup Poopalot' and expect my multidollars for it.

Sorry, Dear Reader. if you find this harsh viewing.  But so is this…  Puppymill.

Leave nature alone.
