So, I know I said I'd post about the show, and I intend to... but I had a quick question, maybe someone can answer for me...

I get people all the time, specifying, they want a super sweet chin, loves to be held, does well with being handled and so on and so forth.  Then they specify a chin that's either on hold, or not available yet, or for some reason, one they cannot get.  I inform them of this, and they say, ok, no worries, which others would I recommend?

So I ask them to give me a few days so I can go through the chins, and they say, sure, no rush.

You can see where this is going, can't you?

In a few days, I've emailed them back with the chin-of-all-chins, best chin ever for their family, based on my personal opinion of chins with 14 years to back it up.  So what happens?  Oh, they found a breeder who's weaning a baby next week, and they're going to get that baby.

Let's back up a step.  I find it hard enough to judge personality of a 3-4 month old baby, because at that age they're still all bouncy bouncy bouncy, and even if they'll be a calm chin, they sure won't be at that age, so I always advise people that if they're getting a baby baby, to keep in mind that it's like getting an 8 week old puppy... it's going to be more active than not, and will calm down with age.

So.. I guess my question here... why, please explain why, all the yapping about, oh they want a nice calm chin and it has to be like this and this and this... so I go to try to find one... and then they decide on a chin that there's no way to know, at that age... if it's ANYTHING like what they wanted?  Shit, if they'd said they wanted a freshly weaned baby, I could have said hey, here's 12 of them and not wasted my time trying to find the right chin for them.

If someone could explain this, that'd be great.  Thanks.
