As dog shows go The Westminster Kennel club Dog show held each February is one of the most prestigious. Since Uno won it last year and PETA is once again trying to make a fuss about not airing this wonderful event on TV with its comments to the LA times. Our own Kathy weichert breeder of Uno was asked to give an interview to the "Times" in rebuttal. here is a link to that article.
Most of us involved in the dog show world know that PETA is nothing more than a front for animal rights extremists hoping to end the ownership of animals as pets,food,fur,etc. While they seem to have lofty intentions what they really are, are hypocrites! PETA kills more dogs and cats than they ever adopt to loving homes. The kill rate for animals they "save" is 90%. Many of these dogs and cats are very adoptable. You'd think with the over 30 million this organization brings in each year that they would put some of it to good use in re-homing adoptable animals.
We are a little more than Angry that PETA has chosen our beloved UNO and the Westminster kennel club as a target for their hateful accusations about the health of purebred dogs and their anti-breeder mantra.
