An open letter to Perez Hilton…

I just want to say, I love Perez*, always have.  I am currently working on an article on golden doodle greeders, and Perez and his greeder came up in my research.  I also realize he received an award from PETA (Proggy Award)  The key word in this whole long-winded letter is ETHICAL.

Dear Perez:

I am aware that you purchased a designer dog from a greeder in Southern California who shall remain nameless.  I also know that Teddy has captured your heart and will be a huge part of your life for a long time.  I really appreciate the fact that you highly promote rescue dogs.  Do you sometimes feel ashamed that you purchased your dog from a greeder who lets her “stock” sleep outside alone at night, in “clean oversize pens” (just like our local animal control shelter) and hires someone for very little wage to come care for them?  I sincerely hope you do.  Would you want that for Teddy?

You obviously know these shelters are overcrowded.  As a longtime dog lover/owner, and golden retriever enthusiast, I am really saddened that you chose this route.  Please don’t think that I am ignorant on this matter.  I even read the information on your greeders website about the pro’s of these designer dogs.  I just want to say, you can find just about anything on the internet, and if these people are greedy too, they also reap the financial rewards of this canine catastrophe we call “designer dogs”

There are real, passionate dog Breeders out there, who have a few dogs they keep and love, (in their home) and “stud” them out to other well loved dogs.  They also spend alot of time and money titling these dogs in either conformation or obedience.   These dogs have a clear genetic history, a serious breeding program that ensures the health of the breed, sound conformation and temperament, and a well established club (AKC,CKC, breed clubs, etc) and rescue organizations that are clearly non profit.  There is no such thing with the goldendoodles, labradoodles, cockapoos, puggles, etc etc.  I could go on and on.

On another note, I paid $800 for my purebred golden retriever, who’s ancestors are incredibly titled dogs, and came from loving, ETHICAL homes and breeders.  Sadly, your dog came from a puppy mill…(yes, I said it, how many litters a year do they have?) and I saw the prices on the site from where you purchased your Teddy. (the word “sucker” comes to mind here)

In short, what I am saying is, I suppose I can understand the Proggy Award from Peta for your wonderful blog..but the fact you (unknowingly, at the time, I’m sure) purchased your dog from a puppy mill, kind of makes me question this.  Please promote pets obtained from rescue or REPUTABLE, ETHICAL, Nationally Registered Breeders.

Sincerely, for the goldens..

Shannon
