Mutt-i-grees Pet Club for Mutts

Forget those pricey and elitist pure-breds. Mutt lovers now have their own registry, the American Mutt-i-grees Club:

The American Mutt-i-grees Club — created by the Pet Savers Foundation, the developmental arm of the massive North Shore Animal League America in Port Washington, N.Y. — will give voice to the estimated 25 million owners of mixed-breed dogs, send mutt certificates to their pets and ultimately elevate the mixed-breed choice in the public consciousness, says J. John Stevenson, president of NSALA and managing director of the foundation.

"People are incredibly proud of their mixed breeds, and the time is ripe for there to be a way for them to communicate, share ideas and celebrate their choice," Stevenson says.

The only problem with Mutt-i-grees is now they are sold for the same price as Pedigrees.
Remember with "mutts" were the ones you could get for free or $5-$10?
I've had dogs all my life, both mutts and pedigrees, loved all of them and would now make a mutt my first choice.

Aww, mutts are the best =) I love my Heinz 57 - when I'd originally gotten her, I'd had my heart set on a German Shepherd, but after 12 years with her so far I couldn't -imagine- a better doogie. Actually, the last time we were at the vet they said she was probably in such good health because she had enough "mix" in her to be spared the hip and ear problems that often affect older German Shepherds ... I realize that not -all- GSDs (or other purebreds) have breed-related health problems, but either way it's still nice not to have to worry about them quite so much with my muttster =)
