And if thy right eye scandalize thee, pluck it out and cast it from thee. For it is expedient for thee that one of thy members should perish, rather than that thy whole body be cast into hell.
– Matthew 5:29
Rik and Diane Stirling are collie breeders in Minnesota and they believe in divine providence over their breeding program. Apparently this means they don’t have to rub two brain cells together or do even a modicum of research before breeding their Blue Merle White-Factored dam Selina with their White-factored Sable Merle sire Sonny. God is doing the thinking for them and God wanted some severely screwed up puppies. And if you want some screwed up puppies, you have your choice of three, Available NOW!
Because Rik and Diane were too stupid to avoid this pointless suffering by making a better breeding decision, and because they were too callous to put the double merle white factored puppies down at birth, the scandalous offspring have to suffer while these idiots wait until they are 8 weeks old to confirm what we already know: that they are blind and likely deaf. Just in case they aren’t totally devoid of sensory perception, Rik and Diane will take your deposit money still… you know, just in case.
Talk about being expedient and letting three of thy members perish rather than spoiling an entire litter!
If you want to reenact The Miracle Worker with your very own Helen Keller dog, act now, supplies are running out, only three blind and deaf puppies left. Hurry on over to Stirling Collies and put your trust in them because they trust in the LORD! And while you’re there, be sure to join their NuVet pyramid scheme (they even offer a puppy guarantee as long as you join the scheme and buy their products!).
