1 – Too much focus put on the breeds going into a crossbreed and not enough focus on the individuals.
2 – Expecting extreme breed features, like the height of a Great Dane or the thick bone of a Neapolitan Mastiff, to stay in a crossbreed. These breeds are inbred for a reason: tandem repeat. Without tandem repeat the frequency those extreme traits are expressed reduce considerably, and eventually disappear. Your F1 crosses my give a 50/50 chance of those traits, but in your F2 crosses that frequency will drop considerably.
So you think, well I’ll just push this shower off till tomorrow, then again the next day, and gain, etc…
Then you’re laying in bed with your arm over your head because it’s hot as hell and you get a whiff of yourself and think “what have I become?”
Blame it all on my genes,
I dug out clean,
And ruined their nightly routine.
I was first one to go
Then puppies fo sho
Flash was the last one
They saw on the seen
And I saw the surprise
And the fear in their eyes
When I looked in the window pane
And I saw them too
Thought “family, we’re caught”
But they’ll never hear us complain
‘Cause I likes to dig out of places
Where the ground is soft
And my kids help me run away
And I’ll be ok
I’m not big on fenced spaces
Tryin’ to find myself a nice oasis
Oh, I like to dig in out of places
Well, I guess it was wrong
But I knew all along
Because, I’ve been here before
Everything’s all right
I’ll just say goodnight
And curl up with my family on the floor
Hey, I didn’t mean
To cause a big scene
Just lock me up in this room…
Help us finish it! 🙂
I’m always honest about my intentions, and I only share insight I’ve gained and feel confident in. I’m not hiding anything, my intentions are well documented all over the web. I don’t just throw thoughts around haphazardly to create reactions.
I work on one project to the best of my abilities, and once I hit the result I was working towards, or realize I cannot reach those results, or simply realize it wasn’t a good fit for me and my family/situation, I move on.
Some people focus on one thing only in dogdom – like a laser. That’s cool too. But that’s not for me. I get bored when I feel I’ve hit the end of my growth and knowledge in an area. I might circle back around and focus on it again later when I feel there is a new angle to be learned, or I may not.
I change. This dogman is always changing and evolving. It may seem as tho I can’t focus, but really I’m just a few steps ahead of you. You’ll catch up eventually, and then you’ll understand.
Some people like one version of me more, some people hate that same version. That’s fine, a new version is on the horizon anyway. I’ll continue to evolve. I’ll continue to tweak my focus and contributions to dogdom, and I’ll continue to make positive impacts to the breeds I love and to the people who are open minded enough to pay attention.
