I am sorry but stating a smart ass comment was being made is very rude we are all very protective of the breed here. IF it werent for that love we would not question the things we do. when someone is expecting to breed they should know what a tie is. Hence, they didnt do enough research or ask the proper questions. Now on another note you say you " thought"he was hurting her you didnt know what was happening. Now not having the knowledge of what a tie is what if he was hurting her?.. Wouldnt it be a little late now to find out he did?
