“Responsible dog fanciers often wonder why a new exhibitor would purchase a show prospect from a commercial kennel rather than an established, successful breeder and parent club member. It may come as a shock to learn that the new exhibitor went to 'good' breeders first, but was rebuffed or ignored, and then found a warmer welcome from a less-than-savory breeder.... This isn't rocket science. It is as simple as following the Golden Rule, and doing unto others as you would have them do unto you. If you're too busy for newcomers to the sport, you don't get to complain about where they bought their dog.”
