We have noticed an increasing number of dog breeders that are taking our

- Some of our content was exclusively authored by my family
members and a family friend, and we share that content within our three
web sites. We will NOT give permission for that content to be used on
other peoples' sites.
- Some of the content on our sites was written by others, and we were

Because of a variety of circumstances (such as described above), we have to say "no."
If you do copy our content, you will be reported. Your web hosting
provider has the right to take your site offline, so nobody can see it.
Your site may also be removed from and then banned by search engines.
So What CAN You Do?
- Research a topic you are interested in from a variety of web pages,
journals, or other sources. Then, COMPILE YOUR OWN SUMMARY, IN YOUR OWN
WORDS, to put in your media/publication. Take credit for your own work
by writing your own content.
- Place a link on your site to our pages if you would like people to
know about the topics of interest to you.
