Default Re: American This, American That...But What About Canada?

As an American, I can agree that the whole 'American' theme can become overwhelming for others outside the US. But, I also believe that it is descriptive in nature for the most part.

For example, the American Buffalo is completely different from the Water Buffalo or Cape Buffalo, and their plush was created to look like the American Buffalo or Bison.

The American Albino, while not actually an Albino and instead is a Dominant White horse because it does not have pink irises, is the descriptive name of any number of horses that are white in color. This can include Quarter and Arabian horses.

While there does not seem to be much difference between the English Cocker Spaniel and the American Cocker Spaniel other that the size (since they were bread from the English version), this one I would have to concur that the use of American is unnecessary.

I would love to see a moose though! It is one of my favorite animals! And I certainly would not be offended if they called it a Canadian Moose, even though you can find them in northern America, Europe and Asia.

As for pets, how about a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever? Or a Newfoundland Dog?

I suppose though, if you want to get into the nitty gritty, the Labradors (Yellow, Chocolate, and Black) are Canadian "invented" dogs.

exactly!They treated it just like any other day in webkinz world!

Just one Canadian Webkinz, and I would be perfectly happy.

What's with all you people? American Cocker is a sanctioned breed. Canada is also American as is Mexico. Ganz isn't saying the "US Cocker" or the "US Buffalo". We proud citizens of the United States need to realize that we don't have a lock on America. It's a CONTINENT, for heavens sake!
Find something else to whine about. (And tke a close look at the poor Webkinz reindeer....he's not reindeer at all. That's a moose.)

Yep Canada, United States, and Mexico are all in North America. And there's also a South America below all of us North Americans :-)

That would be cute. Or even a moose or beaver would do. Just something to show that Ganz likes Canada, too...well, at least I hope they do. Supposedly they're a Canadian company, but, whatever. Maybe they'll end up with an American red squirrel...I love those guys. That one I wouldn't mind, though, because that's actually what it's called. I think that the other American things are just a lazy idea. Now, if they had an american cocker spaniel but not a regular one, then I wouldn't mind so much. Oh, and there's the American buffalo. That one I don't mind as much, but still, I think one is enough, and isn't just plain buffalo good enough? There are buffalo in other countries, too, and they look about the same to me...

anyways, that's just my opinion. Feel free to dissagree, I could care less.

lol KKF, but you've got a point.

I believe GANZ did this because we're in NORTH AMERICA in case you didn't notice. and AMERICA part is canada AND America, geddit? M'kay.
