It's not like insurance companies had a "hot breed" list back in the fifties.

So the Lassie I grew up with was a cast off dog. I may never recover.
What always got me was that Lassie was played by a variety of boy dogs. They must have had terrible gender identity issues. "Hey, girl, Timmy's in the well again!"

There were several reason for the gender skullduggery! Female Collies are smaller and their coasts don't look as full on camera. Male Collies are stronger and easier to train than the females. And lastly, most purebred Collies have not been spayed (or neutered) and their cycle of pending motherhood interferes with filming schedules.

But most of all it was all about the fullness of the coat and promoting the breed. TV was a perfect vehicle for this.

Yes, the boy dogs were prettier.

Just got back from the pool, 2 hours without rugrats! Then came the swarm. I held my ground/water and finished my book on my Kindle in its waterproof case. Best investment I've made.

Come on Addie, just admit it.

Sorry Pac. Only in the sciences. but for common sense, the girls take it all the way. We also have a higher tolerance to pain. Men are babies when it comes to pain. When they get the flu, they complain that the hair on their arms hurts and they cry. But we still love all of you. Men are just so adorable. And so helpless. Most of the time we love taking care of you.

Addie, I will mail you DH the next time he gets sick. I do not love taking care of him. He is not adorable when in that state, he is a whiney twit. Thankfully, he rarely gets sick. Lucky for him, he knows better.

As has been oft said, if men could have babies, there would be no babies.

You women! At the drop of a hat you cart out the same old wise cracks about men. Men have to be stronger!

...to put up with all the crap women dish out.
