This is adorable, and fantastic for this little fellow, but can we as a species finally come to terms with the fact that our ridiculous, controlled breeding of the unfortunate Canis lupus familiaris has reached its very lowest point in this instance?
I mean we've taken this species and bred them to be portable, "cute," friendly, hairless (or hairier, as the whim strikes) and we have these animals who are sickly, utterly dependent on our care, and just absurd. A genetic trainwreck, manufactured by us. I mean, god help the species that falls under our gaze for loving manipulation and control.
Are we going to start breeding them to be legless and pocket sized? So we can carry them around our necks with a lanyard like a tamagotchi?
