...at least according to a lady we met at Petco! I was dogsitting for the day, so took Scandal to Petco. We met a lady there who just gushed over how beautiful Scandal was, and asked when we were going to breed her because she wanted a puppy. I told her that Scandal is retired from breeding and has been spayed. The lady said "Oh, that doesn't matter. Spaying is like birth control: it doesn't always work. If you put her with a male often enough, she'll eventually get pregnant." I politely told her that spaying removes part of the dog's reproductive system...there is absolutely no way for Scandal to become pregnant. The lady just laughed and said, "If you're not interested in selling the puppies, you could just say so!" And she walked off. So, which male maltese should I breed Scandal to? With her bloodlines, I'm sure I can produce a future Westminster winner! Now taking deposits on puppies!
