i think you have every right to rant. seriously whats that womans problme, does she even have a clue how puppies are made?! seriously, what she thinks gonna happen if she has a bitch in heat in the same room as an intact male!?
those people annoy me.
Vixie is now in her first heat and is under constant supervision and not allowed within 100ft of an intact male of ANY breed, she doing very well in her confomration (yay) and if she continues to show well and reaches a healthy weight (4.5 +) at about 2yrs old (preferably a little older) I MIGHT breed her if we can find the correct male, one with GREAT pedigree and at the most 3lbs. (preferebaly less) if by 2 yrs old she is not a healthy weight (or is but isnt showing well anymore) She WILL be fixed.
I mean why risk your babys life, shes a show dog yes...but shes MY BABY FIRST! and i cant imaging taking those kind of uneducated risk with my babys life.
as for if i do breed her, i will be awake from the moment she goes into heat untill the puppies find a new home.
i expect to sit y her side for the monet she starts showing sighns untill ALL the puppies are born, warm and eating healthily.
yes staying awake is difficutl, but if you care about your pet, and its YOUR fault the dog is going through it then its your responsibility to sit up all night with your dog and make sure nothing goes wrong!
