Nobody hates your puppy. Not in the slightest. Most hate the fact silver breeders discredit facts associated with dilute x dilute breedings and the high potential for health problems. I've been around quite a few of them and I don't want owners to think I "hate" their dogs. This isn't the case. It isn't the dogs fault.

Be prepared. All which I have been around have skin allergies and food allergies. Do non-silvers have these issues? Most certainly. Just not at the frequency one would hope to have through careful breeding practices. As Lee said, nobody wants to see a pup unhealthy or has bad wishes against the pups.

Not to mention the increased price tag for a color rather than a set of parents which have been rigorously health tested to attempt to produce the healthiest pup possible. That's what you want to pay for, not a color which is a bit different from other similar dogs.
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checked by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."
Theodore Roosevelt 1899
