Let's make the dog do the dog

August 27, 2021by Layla Zarfati
I confess, while I love the work I have chosen to do to no end, that the idea of breeding a breed considered snobbish and even somewhat disliked by so many people saddens me in no small measure.
But the biggest trouble is these people who look for just such a bum (Toy, of course) because they are convinced of these characteristics of him, and when they find him, if snobbish and obnoxious he was not, within a few months he will surely become one.
They are the sciure marie - look up who they are on the web - who as soon as they get a puppy, they scramble to make him soon forget what it means to rest his little paws on the ground, especially if it is not the floor of their house.
Vanishing all my work, which lasted a full three months, in which I did my best to ensure that the puppy could experience any environmental and socialization circumstances with its own and other species.
When I am contacted and I decide to assign a puppy, I try my best to try to flush out a potential maria shia, but I confess that sometimes they are so good at concealment (because they are aware of it a bit) that I risk not spotting them right away.
Irony aside, I would love to make an appeal: the toy bum, despite its name, is not a toy at all.
He is a dog.
Like everyone else.
He cannot and should not spend his outings enclosed in a purse or worse yet wheeled around in a stroller (shall we organize a collection of signatures to ban its production?), he cannot and should not wear ridiculous booties so that he does not get his paws wet if it rains outside, he cannot and should not always smell like a lavender bag of laundry drawers, he should be allowed to do his business outside and not in the house on a sleeper because the house represents his den and from the earliest origins the dog (and the wolf, before him) does not soil his den.
And then he needs to "decipher" the smells and stenches left behind by the other dogs he encounters in his path, and if he decides it can be done, he needs to be able to roll with it like a pig until he becomes one with that particular stench.
In that case, let him enjoy it, because then a good bath and he is as good as new again.
I know people who will lift their dog (not a dog of mine, thankfully) by the whole leash - tied to a harness, I hope, and not a collar - just to keep him from getting a paw wet if there is a puddle, who have never taken him for a run in a meadow, in a forest or at the beach, for fear that he might catch some forasacco, some vermin, get hurt, run into other dogs or even just get dirty. Who don't know what a dog area is and then ask for advice, complaining that their dog is sketchy, avoiding everyone (fellow dogs and humans) and showing his teeth when someone comes up to pet him (strictly from inside his purse).
Complaining that he is unmanageable in the house, sleeps little and is always alert, barking at every slightest noise.
There is very little to explain; one would have to be able to get inside these people's brains and push the Reset button.
How endlessly sad...
