    I cringe every time I am at a pet store and they say a dog is AKC... most commonly now though they are "bragging" up the Continential Kennel Club (CKC) who in my opinion is hiding behind the Canadian Kennel Clubs letters to try and look good... just take a look at the Contiential website and I think you will be less than impressed at what it takes to get a dog registered... just money... blech!

    All being AKC registered means is that both sire and dam were AKC registered. That being said-- The AKC has the right to go to any breeders home (or institution) for inspection. They can inspect the premises, dogs- and they inspect records. You can lose your AKC registration ability if you don't follow their protocols. This is one reason millers may decide to go to another registry.

    The comic book they hand to young children has a picture of a woman with a huge, bloody knife-- positioned over a frantic rabbit. Caption reads"YOUR mom kills animals". They hand these out to young kids.
    My main question would be... then why do most of the PETA pushing celebs have dogs or cats or such if they are against having animals as pets??

    It should be made illegal to sell dogs and cats in pet shops like in the UK. I was horrified when I saw them on holiday over there.

    I hate pet stores! I went in one the other day and there was a little boy cav that looked just like Gus as a puppy... he had just woken up and his little ears were flapped back and his big brown eyes just said "i need some love"... i literally left in tears. I hope he gets a great home!

    Most of the Petland store in my area don't even bother trying to hide behind the CKC (continental...) They are all registered with either ACA (which ANYONE can register ANY dog, mutt, pure bred etc) or APRI (American Pet Registry Inc..again completely meaningless.) Most people are uneducated if they are buying a puppy from a Petstore anyhow, so all they see is that the dog has "papers".
