Ever had an invention that worked? I know I haven’t. But this is an entirely different review of inventions that worked but then were regretted.
Includes such bizarre inventions such as the labradoodle, the lethal injection and ecstasy.
Conron, who is writing a memoir about life with the labradoodle, says that despite the fact that the dogs have helped so many blind people, he regrets creating the first crossbreed. “I opened a Pandora’s box, that’s what I did. I released a Frankenstein. So many people are just breeding for the money.” Today, people pay ridiculous prices for poodle crossbreeds, and unscrupulous breeders are crossing poodles with inappropriate dogs simply so they can say they were the first to do it. There are cavoodles (cavalier king charles spaniel/poodle), groodles (golden retriever/ poodle) schnoodles (shnauser/poodle), and even roodles (rottweiller/poodle). “A lot of them are just crazy,” Conron says.
