    not to breed. I know I can't control what people do, but on another forum someone is wanting to breed her dog. They say they are going to do it because they want another dog but her mom is set that she is scared of ones she hasn't raised herself from day 1 I guess. . .:confused:
    But people are telling her it's ok because the dog is purebred. . .I need some convincing material! ;) All they said was that the dog had a known pedigree. Sigh. . .

    Tell them all about the negative stuff that can happen, like momma dying from pregnancy and them having to raise the pups themselves, pups dying, complications, all the fun stuff! Maybe that will convince her?

    If you tell them all the bad stuff they can "experience", maybe they won't want to "experience" it after all. ;)

    Would they care about dogs in shelters, or would that information go in one ear and out the other?

    This is a quote from another replyer. It seems to be the norm of agreement.

    If purebreds never have trouble finding homes, why are there so many purebreds in shelters and rescues?

    They are hoping maternal instinct kicks in and she doesn't kill the puppies? Wow, that is one optimistic family. And "my female is too aggressive to accept another dog" is a perfect reason to breed!

    Man oh man, when will people learn??!! :confused: I simply can't believe there are so many ignorant and selfish people out there who think that breeding is just a little game or something you do because you have a little spare time..... it takes a LOT of dedication, work, reading, meeting other breeders, showing your dog and most importantly knowing how to read a pedigree and find compatible stud for your bitch. Not to even mention all the health tests and so on. ;)

    I can see you also have a Chihuahua Momof2Pups, are you a member of any Chi forums?? You wouldn't believe some things you find there...... people breed all kinds of dogs, not knowing that there are thousands poor Chis out there in shelters all around the USA!

    It always amazes me what people will breed. There are so many people who breed their dogs "because they are purebreds."

    It's nice to see you here as well, Christina :D Billy is so gorgeous!

    It is crazy to see what people are breeding on the chihuahuas forums, I agree. Even with purebreed dogs, pet quality and breeding quality are too entirely different things!

    Yes, Lucy's a chi/terrier mix. No I'm not on andy chi forums but I'm sure they have some appauling breeding. Chis are such lovely little dogs and in such high demand there are soooo many awful back yard breeders.

    How many times do we hear I would love to breed so that my children and see the miracle of birth, well this is a mock trailer for a mock video, wonder how many after seeing such a video would think its a good idea to breed. maybe putting this on the site may change their minds.

    ANNOUNCING "THE MIRACLE OF BIRTH" VIDEOTAPE

    Intended for all those who want to breed little Fluffy in order to let their children experience the "miracle" of birth, this real-time video tape set can either substitute for home breeding or guide you in making the most of your breeding decision.

    * Experience the joys of seeing a live puppy pop effortlessly from its mother's body and see her consume the bloody afterbirth! (Most children will squeal with delight when seeing this for the first time - many will make a life-long commitment to celibacy then and there.)

    * Enjoy watching the frantic efforts of a breeder trying to resuscitate a still-born puppy.

    * See the hilarious actions of a bitch who searches for the puppy she thinks she just dropped but which was quickly tossed into the wastebasket because it was only a blackened, half-developed fetus.

    * Reserve a full 36 hours to see the entire set of tapes in one sitting to really share the drama, boredom, and exhaustion of the breeder as she labors to help her struggling bitch in extended labor.

    * Watch as a breeder tries to recruit several helpers to carry her dying bitch to the car for transport to the nearest animal hospital in a futile attempt at saving the beloved family pet. (Seeing the children crying and asking what is happening is half the fun!)

    * Follow the fun as a breeder and their spouse alternate duties during a full week of 4-hour bottle feedings with a fading puppy while also trying to keep 13 others dry and healthy!

    And, as an extra added attraction:

    * Laugh with us at the madcap antics of a typical shelter worker as she accepts new animals while keeping a straight face as mom and dad assure little Kevin that the nice lady will take VERY GOOD care of 8-year floppy. Enjoy the thrills as she later shoves unwanted puppies and adult dogs into a gas chamber as she chokes back tears and goes home to try and explain to her children just what she does at work!

    * And, for a limited time only, we will include free of charge the video tape of a recent arrest made by the local animal control officer who discovered that someone had falsely declared his male dogs neutered (to save on license fees) and when discovered was planning to do the job himself at home!

    The second half of the same bonus tape shows the chagrin of a backyard breeder who was tracked down from her telephone number which was all she ever gave out. This wonderful person would arrange to meet people at local shopping malls where she handed over her 4-5 week-old puppies for $120 each! We were all amazed to find that those 20 puppies she was selling each year all came from the same single bitch and dog.

    Yes, if you, or a friend, are considering breeding Fluffy to show children the "miracle" of birth, be sure to get this video and show them the miracle of death at the same time!

    We have high hopes for this video, following as it does on the tremendous success of our first effort: "Do it yourself home vasectomy, featuring George "squeaky" Baker," and its sequel, "Do it yourself home explosives mixing, by Bob "lefty" Anderson."

    Special to the first five purchasers, one frozen still-born puppy - just wait until you take it home and see how the kids' eyes light up as the pup thaws!!
