I think it's time to eliminate the 'M' word (you know, MU*T) from our vocabulary. It's hurtful and it's derogatory. We dogs with parents of different breeds prefer the term 'DIVERSE BREED'. There is nothing more painful for me than to go to the dog park and hear the other dogs refer to me with that M word (like they're so high and mighty). So please, the next time you see a dog like me, for instance with a poodle for a daddy and a cocker spaniel for a mommy, be careful how you refer him or her. We dogs may not always show it, but we are sensitive.
