Your opinion about "designer dogs"?

I was just wondering if anyone else out there gets outraged when they hear people use the term designer dog. I work at a dog store (no not petland we sell apparel, toys, etc.).

I work at a dog store (no not petland we sell apparel, toys, etc.). When customers ask what kind of dog I have I say he what he is-american eskimo, min. poodle, bischon mix so basically a mutt. I have had some people go "oh well I have a designer dog he's a labardoddle (or another kind) (sp?)". And if they are really snippy with me I say "Yep guess mine's a designer too I guess he is a ekibipoo!" Then kind of laugh! I'm sorry but you're dog is a mutt! I know certain dogs are breed to by hypoallergenic and all that but it is still a mutt! I love mutts nothing wrong with them! There is nothing designer about a dog! It enrages me to think that someone is paying $500 or more for a mutt! Believe me a dog is priceless no matter what! Mine is spoiled rotten! What are your feelings?
Update: I am so glad I am not alone! I feel like I only know a few ppl that feel the same as me!
