I have been dealing with breeders for a few years now and it never ceases to amaze me that many breeders are the most wonderful and caring, as well as loving and dedicated people. I know many breeders who would easily give their shirt off their back for you. It also never ceases to amaze me that some breeders are rude, and so full of negativity that I cannot fathom anyone would purchase a dog biscuit from them let alone a puppy. I never wish harm upon anyone, and never treat anyone with disrespect, even when what they are offering is something I do not want. I am not looking at the world through rose colored glasses and I also do not believe that everyone should be smiling all the time. I do however believe that no one should ever be treated with disrespect. No ones hard efforts should ever be disregarded as trash and be disrespected. Many times in this business I have seen friend after friend and business associates as well be disrespected. Many breeders with big hearts have been taken advantage of time and time again, and I am often torn between the good angel on my one shoulder and the devil on the other. I often hear the devil whisper in my ear to retaliate and "do unto others as the have done unto me" instead of "do unto others as you wish to have done unto you". It is hard to sit and watch these things and not post negative remarks about the people who are doing harmful things to me or my friends and business associates. Often I want to write articles or blogs speaking negatively about them and their actions and then I stop and realize that this would make me just like them. As tempting as it is to fight fire with fire it is best to meet these actions with the high road as the proper road to take and just turn the other cheek. It will be paid forward and one day they what they have given will be paid forward to them.
