I'm Gonna Buy me a Dawg!
I'm gonna buy me a dawg unlike any dawg I ever did see. He's gonna look
like a WOLF! I'm gonna love that little cub with all my heart and keep
him in the house till he is 4 or 5 months old. Then when he turns out to
REALLY be unlike any dog I ever had, I am gonna search the internet to
find X-spurts on "email lists" and they are gonna tell me how to raise
my special wolf-lookin' dawg.
They're gonna tell me to build that dawg a BIG pen, the most expensive
pen you ever did see, with more security than a prison. I'm gonna visit
my dawg in that pen from time to time and feed him good too!
The people on those lists are gonna tell me to get him a 'companion', so
I'm gonna get him a girl dawg and put her in the world's most expensive
pen too. And then 'cause I know they are prettier and sweeter than any
dawgs I ever did see I'm gonna let them have some babies.
The X-spurts on them email lists are gonna tell me I need a contract and
a guarantee to sell the cubs. I'm gonna get all kinds of great advice on
how to place them cubbies. Now I'm a bona fide breeder, and I'm gonna
give all my buyers the same advice the people on them lists gave me.
They're gonna tell me that ya don't need to do any health screens, cause
wolves don't get genetic diseases, the way dawgs do - like hip dysplasia.
And my dawgs sure do look like wolves, don't they? I'm so proud of
There are some X-spurts on those lists who have never even had dawgs
like mine, or had them for 6 months or a year! They are going to tell me
that high content wolf-dawg hybrids and wolves can easily be made into
fine housepets; that they can run free on acreage with no fencing and
never want to leave; that ya train 'em just like any old dawg; that ya
can teach 'em to never touch raw meat unless you personally give it to
them; that you can leave any of 'em alone with kids - they
kids; and all sorts of other interesting factoids. Some of the old
timers will disagree, but what do they know anyways.......
Then I'm gonna start a rescue cause even though the buyers thought these
were the prettiest cubbies they ever did see, most could not housebreak
them, could not contain them, could not get them to come when they were
called - they just didn't have the dedication needed for these special
cubbies. And they don't have the time to spend on the internet asking
questions. I couldn't do it
Then I'm gonna rescue as MANY as I can, never mind that I don't have the
$$$$ to feed them high quality
food and build big pens for
them, or the time to clean up after them. And now I have no time to
enjoy those pretty cubbies, or to train them... And oh my those same
people tell me now that I am gonna have to spay and neuter them cause
the prettiest puppies I ever did see have no homes to go to! I don't
have $$$$ left over for THAT!
Instead I think I'm gonna breed 'em cuz they are the prettiest cubbies I
ever did see............
