Robert,

In theory you are absolutely correct. BUT, who looks out for the beginner, the people that cannot get out to capture their own, or those that are not able to find their own? When someone is not honest about it, WE ALL LOOSE. Someone even experienced as yourslf may have been duped by someone. If everyone else trusts you and you sell offspring from the "duper", we all loose. There does need to be checks and balances just as we have them for something like counterfit money makers. I know, a stretch but same principle. If you sell mutts as pure, you are counterfiting. Plain and simple. So, what better mechanism can you provide than policing ourselves? I feel pretty confident that if you found out you were "duped" you would raise the flag as would or should everyone else, so we do not all loose. If I am not correct, please let me know.
