It never ceases to amaze me that there are people who own pugs, yet refuse to eat a GMO tomato.

I find it very interesting that so many people find these mutant dogs cute.

Generally humans find health and intelligence attractive, but for some reason this breaks down when it comes to pets.

My dream is to own an Australian cattle dog. They look like a buff dingo crossed with a raccoon. 100% would survive the apocalypse.

Just need a sheep farm first.

I have a Cavalier, but in hindsight I wouldn't get one again. Just to not encourage this 'cute' breeding. I'd get a Cavalier cross with another type of spaniel or poodle.
