ok THAT, my friend, is an idiotic discussion.
I'll say this here (I'm not going to become a member just for one post), my boss was big into American Pit Bull Terriers and Bull Terriers for probably 20 yrs(breeding when appropriate and mostly showing) and is still into them though doesn't own - different breeds now, she has had many many (not an exaggeration) dogs and is a breeder in the Truest, nicest connotation of the word, a proper breeder.
I asked her the other night about the Am. Staff. Terrier vs. APBT and her answer was : they are different breeds, but not because they should be. But now they are definitely very different dogs. She said it was like the difference between field bred dogs and show dogs of the same breed, how there shouldn't be a difference, but there is.
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day, tomorrow doesn't look good either.
