This was so nicely put, Purley. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt when possible until they prove me wrong.I don't think anyone on here criticized the Pendragon as people. I don't think anyone actually knows them except for Dave.
The thing is that often very nice people get into breeding dogs before they are aware of all the intricacies of what is entailed. Its this kind of board with people who have a lot of knowledge this is useful. It may very well be that the Pendragons will read comments from more experienced breeders and they will learn from them and go on to make improvements in their practice.
It may be that they are doing the best they can with the knowledge they have at the time but are perfectly willing to improve what they do, once they know that there are better ways of doing things.
