You know those women that are so attached to those miniture creatures that they tote aroud with them everywhere.

 

I want somebody to tell me this bizarre trend in parasitic creature carrying will fade away, but expect that somebody will instead tell me how this trend will grow and expand to something weirder.

 

What say you? what is the future of purse dogs.


Live content within small means. Seek elegance rather than luxury, Grace over fashion and wealth over riches.
Listen to clouds and mountains, children and sages. Act bravely, think boldly.
Await occasions, never make haste. Find wonder and awe, by experiencing the everyday.

Well, they'd have very low fitness in the world if society collapses and their doting caretakers are too busy focusing on more pressing things.

 

I for one hope they fall out of fashion one way or another, as the morality of bringing such miserable and unhealthy critters into existence is fraught to say the least

Well, yes, then we will all have something more significant to worry about than purse dogs.

Ummm...I am not sure I understand what is so "miserable and unhealthy" about such critters.  The only moral issues that really come to my mind is whether the treatment they are given is beneficial or detrimental to the little guys.  They are obviously loved, but some times people express their love in weird and punishing ways. I am not sure that applies to the way purse dogs are treated, but I have not really thought about the subject that much.

Unhealth among dogs is more an issue with the fact that unhealthy traits have been selectively bred for over the centuries.

 

For example, dachshunds' spines sag bc they lack structural integrity, pugs' nasal pathways are too scrunched to allow proper airflow so they're always choking, even german shephards are becoming increasingly barrel-chested. The purse dogs you describe are generally colder bc their little bodies don't retain heat well, and are more subject to infections as a result.

 

It's for the same reason that the Hapsburgs developed deformities and health problems after a few generations. Imagine if humans were bred the same way we breed dogs. Mandatory inbreeding  :fie:

 

There are reasons that mutts are always healthier and longer-lived and that's because their parents were of a diverse background.

Oh, ok, yes, very good. Now I understand and agree with your point.
