My friend world-class dog advocate Eve Russell sent me this with a note: "I tolerate PETA's nonsense because they also do [stuff] like this."
It's for their Animal Birth Control campaign. I'm not necessarily opposed to pure blood lines, but I do think it's better for the world if you adopt a rescue dog. Actually, I know it. (Confession -- I have two purebred basset hounds. Call me a hypocrite. I should have adopted.) But I'm definitely against docking and otherwise mutilating animals.
Anyway, like I said, regardless of where you stand on this, you have to admit this is a good spot to sell that point of view.
Of course, you also have to admit that "breedism" is an incredibly stupid word.
(Love the "snacks" line at the end.)
