The big trend in pets now - designer pets??
The big trend now is not getting that purebred Golden Retriever, it's getting a new hybrid dog like a Malkie (Yorkshire terrier and Maltese).
Designer pets are becoming the new rage and for me I just don't understand it. The reality is these are mutts, just like the lovable dogs sitting in the shelters with a death sentence on their heads!
Why not adopt and save one of the almost 3 million pets that are put down every year. Maybe you think it is okay to be fashionable but being elite at the expense of these pets just looking for a loving home is just plain wrong!
All of our pets have been adopted (except our fish as one person pointed out!) and we have loved every minute they have been in our lives. In fact this site is dedicated to Barkley, our Retriever - Lab mix that we lost on Labor Day 2006. He was truly my best friend and I will never, ever, forgot him.
