    I was thinking that I feel kind of lucky that you are all the way up in QLD or I'd very tempted to ask you to keep one for me too! But I so don't need a second dog right now.

    How great that the vet recognised what a great job you have done and offered you a place at the practice!

    So in the last few days me and hubby have been talking about starting to find homes for these pups once they have had their first lot of needles are are ready to be weaned,hubbys mate rang last night to see how the litter was going (it was his male dog tips was put with)and hes like so send me some pics so i can pick my pup out that im going to take, now me and hubby had a huge disagreement over this last night.....I said wait a sec who said he was getting a pup for free or getting a pup at all? Yes it was his male that fathered these pups but where the hell was he and his money when the thousands of dollars in complactions for OUR bitch started rolling in?Or when we were hand feeding for every 2 bloody hours!! Im not spending all that time and money to have these pups go to shit homes!But its a catch isnt it i cant keep all 9 pups they have to go to homes.....Now the main reason i said no to him taking a pup is that i know he uses hes dogs for hunting hubby says im being too judgemental about the hunting side of it and that hes mate looks after his dogs really well....Now i must admit i know nothing bout hunting and how its done and how the dogs are treated by their owners i grew up on a property yes but i never seen dogs hunt they were always used for cattle/sheep work,kelpie working dogs.what are your thoughts on this guys?

    Personally I don't think there is anything wrong with using a dog for hunting as such. Unless maybe you are using it to hunt pigs... I've heard some stories about the injuries the dogs get doing that. My old dog would have loved being taken on a hunt! Chasing critters was what she lived for.

    But I do think you need more info on how he treats his dogs before you decide whether or not it would be a suitable home.

    I have mates who have pig dogs and they are treated like royalty. Some of them even sleep in his thier owners beds somtimes.
    They can be hurt but if they are wearing the right collars alot of injuries can be prevented. It's not really my cup of tea but i can see why these people (and thier dogs) love doing it. It also helps the landowner out in a big way too.

    But like everything these days there is also a minority of wankers who spoil it for others by not training thier dogs to hunt properly, let thier dogs over heat, and dispose of dogs who arnt good at hunting in very sad and cruel ways. I hope old mate isn't one of these tossers. Suss him out big time before he gets a pup for sure.
