Did anyone watch this on ITV tonight? I found myself getting annoyed by a number of things! Mostly the amount of "designer" dogs that were in the list as it seemed like they were just giving names to things for the fun of it - Shepador anyone??
And then the other thing that annoyed me were the examples of some of the breeds they'd chosen, especially the Shar-Pei. It couldn't open one of it's eyes! Aaargh!
I was pleasantly surprised that Patterdale Terriers were number 46 - Kobi is a Patterdale cross.
The story about Walnut the Whippet was so touching. I quite liked Michael Ball's Tibetan Terrier, so cute. I also love the Cockapoo. I liked Louis Smith's Husky and love dogs of a similar type. I used to have a German Shepherd and still have a soft spot for them too.
Part of me was frustrated with the amount of designer breeds there were (and the names they were using), but there are so many of them crosses in rescues (and rescues generally use their designer names) that they probably thought that using them would help adoption rates - It would have been good if they used the owners point of view about their dog/breed and then picked out and highlighted a few of that particular breed from a couple of rescues.
Of course, there are two sides to everything so no doubt breeders have seen an increase in interest.
caz2golden, I agree! It would have been interesting to see and hear about the more less known/vulnerable breeds. The program really should have been a 2 or 3 part series!
lotsofcats, I loved the Tibetan Terrier! A customer has two, and they are a really lovely breed.
