  3. It’s so cute, but aren’t teacup dogs really unhealthy?

  4. That came off critical, that’s not what I meant. I just wondered if the rumors I’ve heard are true.

  5. I think whenever you dramatically change a breed (like shrinking it down to a fraction of it’s normal size) you’re gonna have some issues.

    I’m still not really sure how they do that. I mean, do they just purposely pick really small dogs? Do they mix in another breed that has a dominant size gene (small) but recessive other genes so that the coloring/look of the bigger breed is maintained?

    Are they actually using shrink rays? So confused…

  6. Hobo and bfm: Another part of the problem is simply the twisted “breeding” thing. It’s not healthy to limit a line of dogs (or animals of any species) to only a very small gene pool. Recessive traits build up. For instance, I understand a much bigger breed of dog, doberman pinschers, have a high incidence of hip dysplasia.

    But enough of that sombre stuff.

    Aaaaaw! Look at the cute doggie! So cute! 🙂

  7. I read something about the dog breeding and how twisted and effed up it was in Vice Magazine a couple years ago. Now, you may be thinking “Vice? Uh? Okay?” But it was a really good article, chock full of sarcastic and offensive commentary much like my own style.

    As far as this pup; it’s a puppy, probably a runt. Soo…

  9. Miniature dogs always make me think of this scene in Jurassic Park (the book, not the movie) where the old dude who looks like Col. Sanders (in the movie, maybe not the book) pulls a miniature elephant out of his bag in a meeting and it trots around the table. It’s just weird.

  10. Yeah, I agree with Sarah. It’s just weird!

    Miniature horses also weird me out. And I’m not talking ponies. I mean the ones that are the size of a medium dog.

    Why not just get a dog then?

  11. The mini dog could ride in a mini coach pulled by the mini horse.
