and WHY, pray tell, is she having puppies? don't you know there are enuff mutt pups out there that are being PTS b/c of this same s#@*......read the "sticky" THE BREEDING ISSUE posted in the General Dog Forums section.....better yet, go to the HS and witness a dog being PTS.....She is a mix between lab, boxer, and rot
I have had internet server problems for 2 days but the last message I tried to get off just before I "died" was a message of support for Tirluc. It didn't go so here is in essence what I had said.
I know Tirluc is a dog lover and does not wish harm for these babies nor to Blue. She was just voicing the same frustration I had felt, when I saw that in spite of all our talking and trying to educate people about irresponsible or ignorant breeding, it still goes on.
Sometimes people just don't want to be educated. I personally fail to believe that in this day and age, people don't know about the obscenity of the pounds and shelters.
I say to the above posters, why not go and spend just one day visiting the pounds and shelters in your immediate area. Look into the eyes of the dogs that hopefully clambour for you to pick them, the desperate, desperate eyes. Remember that for the majority of the dogs you have seen in that day, the end result will be death because there are simply not enough homes for all the mixed breed dogs that are being produced. Doesn't matter that they are sweet, or puppies, or gentle or desperate... they are going to die. Then tell me to not be rude or passionate about this issue.
