Dog Forum Members Make Harassing Phone Calls

I am a member of a dog forum some of whose members truly hate the concept of mixed breed dogs. In this forum, I replied to a post about dog breeders, endorsed Simon's breeder, and gave the breeder's website.

Several hours later, I received a phone call from the breeder that she was receiving harassing phone calls from forum members. Talk about passive aggression - you passively post disparaging comments and then call the breeder anonymously to reinforce your position.

Hate mail, posts that attack (versus offer an opposing opinion), and harassing phone calls are the work of very angry and somewhat unbalanced people.

To those people who continue to practice this heinous behavior,
  • Do something positive, versus attacking someone you don't really know anything about.

  • Find another positive outlet for your anger, please!

My sincere apologies to Simon's breeder. I will mention the breeder's name only in person to those who ask me for a referral.
