    THIS is a prime example why. :( People think that a few litters won't make a difference, but they make a world of a difference. If you are not showing, working and testing your dogs & dedicating your life to breeding, leave it to professionals, please!

    That video is so sad it made me cry. :( It's so true. I thought your title was a real question and I was like, "oh, man, here we go again!" but that's a good site to communicate the cause.

    Very good video.

    I'm a strong believer on people who only have "pets" should have them fixed. There is NO reason to have them unaltered!

    Crosbie was not of "show" or "breeding" quality, therefor he was fixed asap.

    Riot and Jada ARE however show quality and will remain unaltered until they have a chance to prove them self otherwise to BE fixed.

    Chime isn't "mine" so I have no say in her lol

    I never had any intentions for breeding my guys so it was less of a hassle to get them fixed.

    I don't have to put up with heats or rangy, testosterone filled, ADD dogs! LOL

    I see it all the time. Here is more truth Sallyanne, [​IMG]
    cost of over $3000.00 to save her life from breeder.

    [​IMG] This is Betty Jean cost to me to save her Over $ 5000.00

    I'm sure that you all by now know Whiskey cost to save his life over $ 5000.00 and I see the barrels all the time and that is why I dont agree with breeding. I get calls daily about ones that need my help and that is what I do with every dime I have. I have and will continue to help the ones that I can and place them mostly with caring loving seniors that can not afford to pay these bills. So you breeders keep on breeding for pets or money and I will never be able to retire.

    I didn't watch, I see too much "human ignorance" and cruelty everyday. I'm just sickened by people who want to breed for no good reason.
    I do have to say that at least here in Calgary, unless a pup is a show prospect, all but 2 owners in the last several months have come to class with the full intention of neutering their pets. Those 2 were talked out of it by class 6:) My puppy classes are for pups from 10 weeks to 6 months of age (instead of the usual 4 month cut off), as I've posted before I do it that way so that spaying and neutering education and the actual surgery is done by graduation....it works too!
