I hate when people slam something we love. I used to have a little dog named Duffy. He was a mixed breed cairn/scottish terrier with some other stuff thrown in so you can imagine what he looked like. So, no he was not a cute doggie, but I loved him dearly and he went everywhere with me. I got so tired of people telling me what a weird looking dog he was. When someone asked what kind of weird looking dog that was I just said "he's a GOOD dog, now Duffy ATTACK"
