It appears that you wish to inhibit further discussion, by stating this will be your only post on the subject.
I've never been one to control, or limit dialog and if you choose not to respond to this, or any other post which may follow, it's certainly your call.
Your examples are fine, but anecdotal.
I've posted the main reason for the AMMA resentment (yes I coined the acronym) stemming from many Mastiff fanciers. It's well known and never addressed by the AMMA community!
All we hear out of AMMA supporters, is how terrible most Mastiff folks are when they hear of someone who owns the AMMA.
The valid causes for the resentments are NEVER considered, or discussed by AMMA followers......PERIOD!
Until an honest open dialog can be established, this resentment will continue, or grow to greater heights.
Tip toeing about the issue won't cut it, and ignoring valid issues surrounding the creation of the AMMA, as it affects the Mastiff proper, will only intensify resentments.
Organize your friends & fanciers in your AMMA circles and then press for a name change. Remove American from the Mastiff, as the American Mastiff IS the Mastiff in America, not a cross bred Anatolian that's claimed to drool a bit less than the Mastiff proper. Call it the Anatolian Mastiff, perhaps the Anatolian breed club will be offended, perhaps not! In any case, why would you believe that calling your cross the American Mastiff would not be offensive to all legitimate Mastiff fanciers in America?
People who buy cross bred dogs, have little understanding of time honored standards and the well established history, which gave rise to the Mastiff in America. This history is well over 100 years in the making, with the American Mastiff Club being formed in the latter part of the 1800's!
For a bunch of clueless newcomers to come along and breed a Mastiff to an Anatolian and then not remember the actual recorded pedigrees of those dogs involved, or loosely recall several Mastiff pedigrees, tells this poster that little regard was given during that development, if one can even call it a development.
Those who then bought the false advertising ( e.g. "just like the English Mastiff, but without the drool") were vulnerable, since people who buy such crosses are also clueless about standards & historical meaning. There are many pet shop mentalities out there, especially if they are buying their first dog, or those who could care less about pedigrees, or puppy mill products.
Therefore, a group gets formed, which is comprised of a commonality, in that you all own AMMA's, but that's as far as it goes, since the reasoning of all such owners, is based on smoke & mirrors, feeding off of the Mastiff proper, and not recognizing the nuances in form & temperament, which delineates & separates the cross from the Mastiff proper!
Rarely will you find dedicated owners of other pedigreed breeds, who would buy such a cross. The target group are those who are clueless newbies, who then organize other clueless newbies and then erroneously believe they have legitimacy through numbers. They remain clueless fanciers despite their mutually supportive groups. It's the sole reason why they can't debate this issue fairly with the Mastiff community, since they are on shaky ground with a weak foundation.
It's a lot easier to just state how unfair the Mastiff community has been toward them and how terrible most of the people in Mastiffs are to AMMA owners!
Riding on the coattails of the Mastiff is akin to counterfeit goods, which are seized at customs when trying to enter the country. The only difference, is that because of the laws, the AMMA people can perpetrate this moral crime and get away with it!
But don't expect the legitimate Mastiff community to embrace the concept, even though we recognize that the dogs themselves are innocent. I might add, that you shouldn't believe that Eileen was in favor of the AMMA's introduction, just because she was nice to you and your dogs.
So as you've established in your last post, "this will be my one and only post on this subject", which does not surprise me, as it's a tactic that eliminates further exploration, something AMMA people need, in order to maintain their confusion & irresponsible offenses, which Mastiff fanciers must contend with in the foreseeable future!
I might add, that owning rescues is a noble pursuit and I commend you for that, but owning the Mastiff proper alongside the AMMA, does not legitimize your concept of the AMMA, or enhance your understanding of the issues surrounding the subject.
