1. We cannot clash with your furniture or clothing, and some of you actually worry about that.
2. We cannot clash with any collar you might choose either! Ditto for bandanas. Accessorize us!
3. Ease of vaccuuming! You can quickly spot the areas of most urgent need.
4. Excellent night walk protection, the "bad guy" won't see us til it's too late!
5. We hide dirt well (doesn't mean we don't need that bath after a messy play, but your guests won't be able to see it so quickly).
6. We make an excellent "backdrop" for a second, more colorful dog if you choose to have more than one.
7. Availability! We are available now at every shelter you can imagine, in every age bracket, no long waiting lists, no long search!
8. Status symbol potential. Black pearls are the most costly you know....
9. No annoying queries "what kind of dog is that" people are content with "big black dog" and don't ask!
10. We need you!
This message brought to you by the thousands of big black dogs who will die today because nobody realizes our wonderful potential!
