Once Again Bigotry Strikes Our Nation. Today We Should Hang Our Heads in Shame

By Kavika

Once again it's the time of the year for dog shows across the country.

The Westminster Dog Show being the most famous of them all. And once again we'll see the bigotry against one of the most beautiful, faithful, courageous and popular dogs of all time.

Never once in it's one hundred plus years has this popular breed every won best in show. That is criminal at the least, total bigotry at most.

Today, November 24th, 2016 The National Dog Show again turned it's back on this brave dog. Disgusting to say the least and named a Greyhound as ''Best in Show''.....A Greyhound!!! That's like making Clara (where's the beef) as the Playmate of the year.

One of the problems may be that they ''look cute or funny'' to people. This belies their true ability, determination and courage.

They are faithful and love families, even the kids and most of the time do well with other dogs and even cats.

They are classified in the ''Hound'' division of the dog shows. And indeed they are a hound. But most all hounds are medium to large dogs. These tough guys are very short, belying their strength and courage.

An Irish Wolf Hound. Ha, compared to these guys/girls they are nothing but a weenie. They prance around the arena. Not our guy, he swaggers around the arena.

Yes folks, you have guessed it...The Doxie, Trekel, Dachshund..If you've never had one as a family member or seen them in action you have no idea what they are or are capable of.

Dachshund translates from German to English as ''badger dog''. Think about that, it's not bird dog, working dog, toy dog, it's ''badger dog'' dammit.

They were bred to hunt badger, one of the toughest meanest critters in the animal kingdom.

Those stubby front legs, long body, long tail and powerful hind legs are there for a reason. That reason is to take on the ferocious beast know as the badger.

There are few animals that will take on a badger, no less in it's lair. That's right, the doxie folds it's stubby little front legs under it body, and it's powerful hind legs propel it into the underground lair of the badger. Where in a very confined space it gashes teeth with the savage beast..Think of a torpedo heading right at you with unlimited courage and determination. That my friends is the Doxie.

The doxie comes in a multitude of colors and coats. The short hair, long hair and the wire hair doxie with more color combinations than you can count.

It's high time that the bigotry against the doxie comes to an end. Civil rights for doxies is the new battle cry of the wiener brigade.

Badgers world wide has given the doxie it's due. It was overheard that a badger recently said about doxies...''those are the toughest bastards that I've ever seen, don't mess with them.''

You've heard the expression, ''meaner than a junk yard dog''...Ha, do you know any junk yard dog that will take on a badger in the badgers back yard. Of course not.

If your going to get a dog, don't be fooled by Fox Hound, or any of the other phony hounds. Get the one and only hound...Dachshund...The King of the jungle.

In addition to all of their attributes they can ''fly''.

Greyhound as the best hound in class. Sight hounds vs. scent hounds. Apples and tomatoes. No comparison. While I am a fan of all scent hounds, there is no question I am a fan of the Beagle. Actually a couple have been named Best in Show a couple of times in the past decade.

You, a fan of Beagle's, I'm shocked I tell you, shocked dd.

BTW, Wiki is recruiting Beagle's to join the Doxie's in this huge animals rights case.

Smokey has signed up, a true warrior.

We watched it again this year, as every year!!!  I thought the dachshunds were adorable, but then, I thought they were all adorable!

I have never understood what they judge, but then, I couldn't, because I'd vote for all of them, and take them all home-- well except for those that need daily grooming, etc.  I can't imagine getting dread locks fixed for a dog every day...  As usual, there were the sweet ernest dogs, the self-confident dogs, those that were doing it to please their handlers and those that were so full of personality and life, they couldn't be squelched.  Tommy would have fit right in with Unknown Breed, but I'm sure his conformity would have been in question.  And I can just see him growling when someone went for his mouth...

GREAT dog show!  As much as I loved all those breeds, and would love to have them here at home, I guess I'll just keep going for the 'pound puppies'...  winking

There are plenty of Dachshund Rescue groups and a lot of Doxies wanting to be adopted Dowser.

See how good Doxies are at disguising their looks...You'd never know from the photo that they are Apex predators.

Dear Friend Kavika: Dogs have 10,000 times the smell receptors as humans.

They help police, the military, and don't forget seeing eye dogs.

People with pets, including the elderly and/pr the infirm aere documented to live longer and be happier. 

Dogs are indeed man's humanity's best friend.

Enoch.

P.S. Super posts by site members here. You are all the best in show.
