Something what has been on my mind for long time and this needs to be written especially today because of many signs today and because it's 14th of February a International Friend Day or as Valentine's day.
There are many Dog breeders and including myself but what does this means to you? You are breeder because you have a litter of puppies? I think its much more important role, I think us as breedrs are the GUARDIANS of the breed!
Definition of Guardian - a person who guards, protects, or preserves
As Guardians we take the responsibility of a breed to our hands to preserve this for the future as best as we can! And I am sadden to see that there are people who act egoistic with the breed as if they own them. We don't own anything ... we are here on this Earth for a shortwhile with a purpose.
As a true lover of Pyrenean Mountain Dog I want to preserve the breed as best as I can and always looking for information about history, genetics, health, pedigrees and open to discussion about this breed to any fancier. I am passionate and I love the Pyrenean Mountain Dog breed.
I am trully greatful for the breeders and dog owners who shared important health information, open databases to help the breed for better future. But I wish that many more would talk more openly and not being afraid what others think ... because its important for the future of the breed and to work together finding best matings to minimaze the risks of combinations.
A successful litter is about information and luck! There is no way of guarantee of certain outcome in a combination because the inheritence of some genes can be trickly but it can be minimized when there is information. Information should never be used as to attack one another but just to keep open mind and learn how does the genetics work in some deseas.
For bettter future of the breed let's work together!
