Purebred Comfort Golden

While at the Vet today he was telling me about a new patient, the owner called her a "Purebred Comfort Golden" He said she's 14 months old and weighs 27 lbs. Bentley is 16 weeks and weighs 46 lbs...my question is ...WHY?!?
First of all, it can't be a "purebred" anything. It's a mutt. I'm sure it's a cute mutt but mutt just the same. I don't doubt that someone saw her coming and charged a pretty penny for that dog too.
Why not just get a small breed dog?? Can somebody explain the logic to me??

From pervious threads I've read, I believe people are trying to fit the temperment and personality of a golden in a smaller more convenient package. Maybe they're looking for a lap dog? All my friend's dogs are lap dogs - they just don't realize they weigh 50+ pounds - not that I mind. lol!

I just think it's insane to turn such a wonderful breed into a "froo froo" dog.

I know when I was originally researching breeds, I was over the moon about the doodles. I had worked as a groomer for about 3 years and I loved my labradoodle clients. They were always obedient and patient, good natured and loving. Breeders touted that I would get the best of both breeds - and I, at the time, preferred the fro-ish curls to the short, coarse coat of a lab.

But doodles were out of our price range at that moment in time, and when it was time to start our puppy search - Bear stole our hearts.

I know this was discussed in other threads, but I think the hybrids really took hold b/c some celebrity somewhere got a mutt and to make it classier, they made a fancy name like "teacup australian shepard poodle", "malti-poo", etc. Suddenly everyone wants a puppy from a breed "that's never been heard of before".

Well, Bear's a Rotti Retriever, oooo la la

/sarcasm

Oh, or they breed them smaller so they can be stashed in purses.

That must make Bear worth a fortune LOL
I wish these "celebrities" would rescue dogs instead of making up dogs.

I'll claim he's my 401(k).

He's truly worth is weight in gold, though gold does not seem valuable enough for this analogy.
