Do you ask them?
What do they mean to you?
What do they mean to the person you are asking?
For me questions are a way to seek further information and understanding.
Without them, where would we be? Where would we go?
I love to ask questions about information that doesn’t necessarily make sense to me. In my profession this is seen as curiosity and a highly sought after quality. Without being curious progress is never made. Without progress nothing ever changes.
When I ask questions and point out areas of information that may not make sense, it does not mean that the information is not credible or appreciated. It really means that I am passionate and care deeply.
When breeders ask questions they are seeking further information. We love our dogs, and we love this breed. We are truly vested in their future.
Why is it that breeders can’t ask questions about the future and things that do not make sense without it being seen as an attack on a profession?
The commitment and hard work that goes into research is deeply appreciated. Without it we would never progress. Without questions and furthering our knowledge what would we research?
Researchers need breeders as much as breeders need researchers. We consent our dogs to undergo procedures without a second thought, yet in return questions seem to draw the most controversy.
Thank you to researchers for all that you do, it is probably not said enough. Thank you to all the breeders out there doing the same, it is also not said nearly enough.
I will apologize now for my questions, but I will keep being curious. After all… it is in my nature to do so.
