I don't see it that way!! I don't think the advertising has anything to do 
with EGO.  It's advertising!  You want someone (hopefully a judge) to see 
your dog/handler, and hopefully they will remember your add, and pick your 
dog/handler the next time they judge.  What's the difference between that 
and a clothing add.  Its there to sell!

I love seeing the beautiful pictures of the GSD's. Just like I love looking 
at the clothes in the Neimans catalog.


Sincerely,
Laura Havis

What part(s) of my posts didn't you understand?

To restate, and hopefully simplify it for you, if anyone was truly honest 
with themselves, they would admit----it is ALL an ego trip!!!

I love my dog; I am proud of him; I am proud of the people who supported me 
in my quest; I am proud of the judges he won under and wanted to give them 
praise and recognition, as well as thanks; I am thankful to my handlers (I 
am pretty sure it says that in the ad), I adore my co-owners.....they have 
given me so much to be thankful for.  They are all a part of my BIG, 
EGO-TRIP of a BRAG!!!   Where does it say I have to be selling ANYTHING????

I am not a breeder.  I am forever indebted to the breeders that make dogs 
that I own and show possible, but, I am not a part of that world and do not 
see why this is such a problem for some of you.

If you like my dog, talk to me about it; if you don't like my dog, you can 
talk to me about it, or not, but, I fail to see why any so-called reputable 
breeder would publicly imply that there is anything at all wrong with him 
when I chose not to word my ad in a way they approve, or don't approve, of!! 
How rude is that??

Several years ago, I told a wonderful lady, and her husband, that I wanted a 
CHAMPION.  I do NOT want to breed dogs.  They gave me the beautiful Diana, 
whom I finished and put working titles on, then they gave me Harley, whom I 
finished, put a working title on, and am still having a BALL with.  What do 
other people get out of denigrating him and my joy in him??

I am sorry I'm not as thick-skinned as some of you seem to think is 
necessary, but, take a look at your attitudes and maybe you will start to 
understand why many people drop out of this game.  Over the past 30-some 
years, I have seen many good, caring, people come and go...........many 
leaving with tears in their eyes.

Why did you spend over $400 for an IBC of the Sept.

Not to me.  I could care less.  It serves me no purpose whatsoever.  I doubt 
that I am alone.

I am not going to pay good, devalued US currency to appease a few people's 
curiosity when they can spend a few minutes of their own perceived valuable 
time and get all the info that their little hearts desire, whether to 
denigrate other dogs or not.

In the "old days," the Review printed a dog's pic and pedigree for free when 
the dog finished.  If the GSDCA doesn't care to support exhibitors in that 
small way anymore, why should I support breeders??
