|I'm glad you guys are on to him! Nobody gets one over on Tiller when it comes to knowing their chops!
And Toto and Squam, I think you can post if you create a disqus account, but I also post off disqus--it's been funky lately. I put my handle, email and then it asks for a pass word, which I tried putting in and it wouldn't work, but when I skipped the password and just checked the box for "I want to post as guest" it did.
Yeah, I didn't follow that too closely, he did sound good at first, but for me the fact that he called himself "ethical" instead of "responsible" seemed odd from the get go. I guess it was some kind of semantic dodge. I thought it sounded like they had just started this enterprise--so yeah, how's he qualified to be patting himself on the back . . . . I didn't realize he hadn't even had any litters, much less any adult generations on the ground to talk about! Holy moly!
He sounds both arrogant and delusional lots of book-readin' no experience. . .. I wonder how much is naive, they really are in love with this idea about themselves, how they're going to do something outside the box, those stinkin' conformation breeder protocols don't apply to them . . . almost like they're some starry--eyed hippy, we're going to breed "organically" . . . . . OR they thought hey, we've got all these dogs, maybe selling a few pups would supplement our income?
My Arab horse friend fell in love with Corgis and tried to take up breeding for a few years and she did sell some pups esp. at horse shows (talk about impulse buys-- a competitor riding by on her horse "Go to stable so and so, barn A and tell my husband to buy that puppy for me"), but I think she quickly learned it was quite a different world than breeding the occasional mare and more involved and more money than it was worth.
