Being 'just a pet' is often the highest calling a dog can have.
Very well stated, it's the truth.

That's why the statement to breeders should be, "I just want a healthy, sound, and stable pet. Big names mean nothing to me. I don't want a by-product of your Next-Champion experiementation. I want an animal that has breed true and is a credit to the breed just by being what it is supposed to be."

That's not "settling for a pet" because nothing more is needed.
