Dog breeders and mouth breathers

I wanted to make a comment about certain dog breeders The majority of whom say that veterinarians are predatory and money gougers. “Veterinarians should do this for the love of the dogs!” ….they have the nerve to say this, while cage producing one of the most intelligent and caring animals that we know of, like a farm animal and selling it to literally *anyone* with the proper size checkbook, saying that they are doing it “for the improvement of the breed” and calling other people predatory and gougers??, you don’t see breeders giving away the puppies for the cost of production, do you?
Considering that they are raising something that didn’t cost them any money since they bought the great grandparents two years ago, and might be $16 to register, and feeding the crappiest cheapest dog food they can get their hands on and immunizing out of warm cardboard boxes of expired vaccine, how can they charge much of anything at all? For the love of the breed?
