Allah hates show breeders.

Such philosophies certainly explain the fine hunting dogs from Arab countries. How do you keep a breed "pure" for thousands of years? Not by trotting him around a show ring! No. Having a god that forbids turning him into a pet is a much better bet.

While it might be an extreme position for most of us, it doubtless gives meat to the dictum 'form follows function'.


  1. It sounds to me like he's saying that having ANY dog as a pet is immoral, not just hunting dogs.

  2. That's right. Keeping dogs for hunting or any other working purpose was OK, thus the single focused breeding for Function for so many centuries that resulted in dogs with great form.
