PostSubject: The Great Wow-Wow show: Crufts   Sun 11 Mar 2018, 16:07

Ch4 now takes on the show the BBC dropped because it exploited animals, breeding cruelties and probably lots of other viable PC reason too. Of course humans have always exploited all forms of life, animals, plants, microbes, me, the sea, the sky, space and of course other humans. Selective human breeding was a Royal pastime for yonks. And so with dogs it has been lilewise thus and more effective. I love other people's dogs but find the demanding fawning hard to handle; arrogant, independent cats and I get on very well.

The models strutting their stuff at Crufts are a delight to watch and during their moment I long to own each one of them. Selective Dog breeding clearly has been around for a very long time both for work and indulgent pleasure. The number of breeds is staggering - I was fascinatedby one cute and jolly terrier breed that was 'developed' during the '40's in Hungary - so war is not all constant turmoil then.

If you can tell a person by the dog they own then mmmm. I have always wanted an Irish Wolf hound but alas no castle with forested grounds to accommodate them - more than  one I think better.
