  1. Agreed, but this is just a hobby, not a job and I have 1 hour a day to write the posts, time is not with me to research the facts fully. Maybe one day I will be able to pay someone to do it.

  2. All you have on hand apart from the entire rest of the internet?? There is tonnes of reliable scientific content on the internet available if you look for it. What you have stated there is an old wives tale and unfortunately perpetuates a myth that causes countless numbers of dogs to live their lives in pain, the chances of which are greatly reduced with health testing and careful breeding. For the record I am not a breeder and have no agenda of my own to push here, I’m just trying to dispel the misinformation.

    Apart from that the sculptures are fabulous 🙂

  3. The facts that I add are just used as a content filler and are never going to be as correct or as accurate as I would like. Sadly I have to reply on Wiki as it is all I have at hand.

  4. “Most mutts are healthier than purebreds. This is because mutts tend to receive the best genes from both parents. Weaker genes that cause problems die off and mutts are then able to show all their strengths with their health, happiness, and lack of aggression (VIA: WIKI)”

    There’s a reason you shouldn’t source scientific facts from Wikipedia. Every single statement in this is incorrect. In a perfect natural selection situation seen in wild animals this would be correct, in a mutt breeding situation the chances of deleterious genes showing up in crossbred dogs are greatly increased due to irresponsible owners breeding dogs despite their poor genetic health.

    How about FACT: Mutts can make great pets too, rather than sourcing your next pet from a pet store or an irresponsible backyard breeder have a look in local pounds and rescue services.

  5. These are amazing and so clever. Now I could go for a dog like that, no barking, no running or exercise and they don’t require food or jump up on people. Now let’s give cats equal time.

Which one did you like?
