    Thanks, Peta, I know I did, I just don't comprehend what part of not my dog etc that people just can't understand. If I had rescued her from a shelter and done the same I would be applauded lol.

    My parents are beagle breeders, they also show and my Dad is a hound judge. They live in the country, the dogs are in "large" pens, big enough to run around and play, there is also a perimeter fence. The golden oldie's and the ex show dogs are de-sexed and the current show dogs are not. The other day the "yard" dog went off his nutter barking and carrying on so out Mum goes to investigate. There is a little entire jack russell cross running around the pens behind the boundary fence looking for a way to get in. My Mum then went out to Bunnings spent countless money and a couple of days with my Dad putting up chicken wire around the boundary fence so the little dog couldn't get in again.
    My parents have just had a litter that they have waited about five years for until Mum was retired and ready to start looking after pups again, due to complications there was a great deal of money spent with both labour and pups.
    My parents sell their pups for $900 to people that are first "talked out of" wanting a beagle then met with a few times and then they have to decide whether they want a pup and my parents want a reason WHY they want a pup, WHY they want a beagle and WHAT they are looking for out of this pup.
    My parents also rescue beagles in need and donate their own time and money towards the bettering of the beagle breed.
    So why is that in the last month I have walked past the pet shop and seen 6 different beagle cross pups on 4 different occasions selling for $950?
    If you want a beagle go to a breeder and you will get yourself a "discount" generally at great loss "profit" wise to the breeders!

    Myf, with a hug, about page 5 said that I was also one of the irresponsible.

    Also giving hugs back to her I wish to ask how? She was not my dog, lived on another property, FIL due to illness did not spot the second half of her first season. He responsibly had her come over here for segregation for the first part.

    I TOOK OVER when it was obvious she was pregnant, vet said too late to abort.


    She was going to have a litter. She needed good care, pups needed good care, yet I am responsible when She wasn't even mine or here? Or yes here a few times a week as a visitor? No male dogs here.

    What was I supposed to do, have her shot? Kill all the pups?
    Whoops! Sorry Di! I completely forgot
    My apologies

    How they manage that dog though then can be construed as responsible or not.
    Someone who takes every care to ensure an oops litter does not happen , still need to deal with circumstances beyond their control,such as plate glass windows and a very determined dog.
    I still can't agree.
    We had a lady come in who was gonna breed her dogs, but not anytime soon.
    She kept her bitch in a crate like cage about half a metre off the ground.
    Now that is being responsible.
    When a hormonal crazy dog can see a bitch and smell a bitch, they're gonna do anything they can do get to her. As your point has proved.
    I've met registered responsible breeders that keep their dogs on seperate sides of the house seperated by 3 or 4 doors while a bitch is on heat.

    I know of a woman (this is quite a few years back now) who had a little maltese that was in season. She did all the right things, the dog was inside locked in a bedroom/ensuite while she was at work. She came home to her lounge room window smashed, fearing a break in she called the police who arrived 20 mins later. The whole time the lady waited in her car. when the police allowed her to go inside she found her maltese and a DOBERMAN that had decided that going through the window AND the bedroom door was a small price to pay to be able to get into the girl in heat.
    Sometimes it doesn't matter what you do - dogs will sometimes go to extremes to get what they want!

    ok , ok , ok.......
    So who is responsible then ?

    Or do you seriously believe that anyone who owns an entire dog is deemed automaticly irrisponsible .

    Your little aside about breeders keeping them on other sides of the house seperated by 3/4 doors is not exactly a selling point Many oops have happened due to musical doors even with the best intentions.
