We knew it was a long-shot, but still it was disappointing to hear last night that Jam, our former Southeastern Guide dog puppy, will not be a breeder.

Yes, we were sad because you will never find a dog or a creature of any description, of any size or temperament, whether on land or in the sea, more suited for a career as a procreator. Jam is graceful in all his movements. He runs like an Olympic gymnast. He walks like a ballet dancer. And he humps--well, he is an artist at humping, nothing like your typical frantic yapping lap dog.
But style alone is not enough; a breeder must also have the right combination of genes and the right physical makeup. Maybe his history of joint pains knocked him out of the program.
Anyway, what a shame. As Cheryl put it, "all that humping for naught."
