""A few years ago a professional handler made the statement in conversation that "If it takes a kennel 150 puppies to produce that one 'great one' - it's worth it". I disagree. Such people aren't breeders - they're gamblers. Their breeding programs require all the skill and intellect of a Saturday afternoon bingo player. In the end, the losses in gambling always outweigh the rewards.

Those who argue that the superiority of their lines, their facilities, etc. justify breeding a dozen b###hes they could barely finish remind me of an old W.C. Fields joke.

Fields asks a woman if she'd sleep with him for a million dollars. When she replies in the affirmative, he then asks, "Then will you sleep with me for $25?"
"Certainly not!" she retorts, "Just what do you think I am?!"
Fields replies, "We've already established what you are my dear - now we're just haggling over the price..."
