    Go take a look on death row at your local pound. Then tell me how you can let it "just happen". You are the human. Take responsiblity. There is no excuse for bringing that many dogs into the world. Maybe your dogs found homes, but for every home your pups found, one more pound dog died.
    Sorry if it seems I'm being harsh...maybe you didn't know any better. I volunteered at a shelter though and this stuff really gets to me. I'm leaving this thread....makes me too upset :rolleyes:

    I learn so much from you Grammy :) I know a ton about horse breeding, but nothing about dog breeding. Lol, that's probably a good thing, right?
