Dog Food for Deformed Dogs???

Terrierman is on another rant about purebred dogs and breed characteristics which he perceives to be "deformities".

The focus of his rant this time is the Royal Canin Company which has developed a dry dog food product specifically designed for Pugs. Royal Canin Pug 25 apparently has a cloverleaf shape which Royal Canin claims will be easier for Pugs to pick up.

Terrierman's reaction: "So let me say it simply: If a dog or cat cannot eat on its own, we need to stop breeding it and go straight to euthenasia."

Duh! Just because a dog food company decides to market a product with a different kibble shape specifically for Pugs does not mean the Pug breed needs it. Hell, they've sustained as a breed for 100+ years, long before Royal Canin or any other dog food company existed. Pugs have been eating whatever is available and "on their own" for quite some time now. In fact, I've never seen a Pug that I wouldn't describe as being rather on the "portly" side, looking to not have missed any dinners.

Enough with the reactive tirades and tabloid headlines, Terrierman.

By the way, the correct spelling is euthanasia, not "euthenasia".
