Ah. Something we can agree on.

Passion. They haz it.

Nuttiness. They have an excess of it.

What is the Kanine Kennel Klub?
We're a new premium dog registry, and hope to become the dog registry.
Individually, we're dog lovers who want all pet owners to have beautiful, healthy
pets with untainted bloodlines.

Why do we need the KKK?
Once there were very few clubs for registering dogs, just one per country.
These were selective on the canines they accepted in order to maintain the
uniqueness of each breed. The dogs they recognized were pure, wholesome,
beautiful dogs.

Unfortunately, profiteers entered the market, and began registering just about
anything. Dozens of dog registries popped up like letters in alphabet soup.
Some of these groups will even register dogs from completely different breeds!
These so-called registries have a "miscellaneous" category for what they call
"designer breeds"--and what everyone of sense calls "mutts." They will accept
anything from chihuahua - dachshunds (called "chiweenies"), to Labrador
retriever - poodle mixes ("Labradoodles") to English bulldog - shih-tzu crosses
("bullshihtz").

Even the formerly discriminating American Kennel Club (AKC) is considering
registering some crossbreeds, including the puerile-named cock-a-poo!

It's time for a return to purity.

When did the KKK begin?
We started in 2009. Our first major appearance was at the Westminster
Kennel Club show, held by the American Kennel Club in New York on February
9, 2009. Our exhibit only appeared for an hour, but proved extremely popular.
The KKK inspired many thoughtful questions, a great number of photographs,
and even articles and stories in major media.

What are the plans of the KKK?
The Kanine Kennel Klub is dedicated to "building a better tomorrow by building
a better dog." The dog truly is "Man's best friend," and we want to be the dog's
best friend.

How can I register my dog? Do you accept registration from other
registries?
Unfortunately, we can't accept a dog as purebred on the basis of what some
other registry claims. So many registries have been stamping their approval on
whatever walks in with four legs that their registries are meaningless.

Fortunately, with the advances of modern technology, a simple DNA test can
reveal if your dog is pure bred or not. If you dog is shown to qualify by an
approved laboratory, you will soon be able to register your dog with us for as
little as $25. We plan to begin registering dogs very soon.

What do I do if my dog doesn't qualify?
Fortunately, there are a number of humane societies that are happy to take in
unwanted animals. These will relieve you of your burden in a manner that's
easy on the family, and usually quite affordable.

How can I contact the Kanine Kennel Klub?
You may send us an email at our address below.

Visit us at kkklub.com
Email us at dogs at kkklub dot com

(Yes, the email and website are real--or will be in a day or two. The site is already registered)

Some PETA people might be a little whacky, but I really like PETA and what they stand for. Animals need protection from people. PETA might go overboard in some cases, but they do a lot of good too.

You are killing me here. Without animal research we would still be drilling a hole in your head when you got a head ache.
PETA is a quasi-domestic terrorist organization. Right up there with ELF.

I don't care, and I think that's bullshit anyway. I don't believe in using and torturing animals for the benefit of people. And it's completely untrue that medicine would not have progressed without animal research. Animals have COMPLETELY DIFFERENT biology than humans, so a lot of the research is useless on people. Animals are living, breathing creatures, with feelings. They feel pain. Why is it OK to use an animal for research, but not people? Any research that is for the sake of people should be done on people.

Wow, really? Do you really believe that or are you just stirring?

yes, I really believe that. It is morally wrong to torture animals in order to benefit people. There are too many people on the planet as it is.

And, there ARE other ways to do research that are effective. There really is no need to abuse animals the way some researchers do. Do you know what goes on in some labs? Seriously. Would you think it was OK to subject people to those experiments?
