    Some people are just plain ignorant and have no idea at all.
    Pounds and shelters are overflowing with dogs,and they just want to add to the problem.

    Also back to the start of the thread, bout ppl asking about if your dog is desexed.. I have had ppl come up to me and ask me about Boss since he was 3 months old, cos he is a good looking ACD.

    Boss isnt going to get fixed but i will take the responsible if he gets out and mates with a bitch on heat. I already know that i gotta be careful with him cos my neighbour has a pure bred pit bull bitch that isnt fixed.
    Peta can I ask why you aren't getting Boss fixed?

    We got our 2 pups desexed yesterday. I told our vet right from their first visit with him that we would be getting them desexed and he practically hugged us! He was thrilled and continually tells us we have the right attitude, i.e. leave the breeding to the proper breeders. He also stressed the point that desexing removes (or at least drastically reduces) the risk of testicular / breast / ovarian cancer.

    We've also had people previously ask if we would be breeding our pups to each other. And they were actually serious! My question back to them was always "WHY?" and the answer was always "oh, I dunno, cos they'd be cool" - Like that's a good reason????!!!!!!

    Anyway, the point is, I feel I have done the right and responsible thing by MY dogs by desexing them.

    Hey Occy

    My uncle the farmer, and he would never fit the bogan description, he wore suits all the time, his son on the other hand...

    Anyway if my uncle saw emus in the paddocks - he'd practically forget he had a tribe of kids in the back of the ute as he took off across the paddock to chase the emus. And us ute baggage would actually cheer him on. That was before I did physics and learned something about the energy in momentum (and sudden stops against hard surfaces).

    He just liked chasing emus, they run funny, he didn't think they caused problems on the farm much. Ah those were the days, before we got educated about the harm it does to emus to be chased. Now to explain that to dingos.

    You certainly have done the right thing - not only for your dogs but all the other poor dogs out there needing a home.

    Thanks Loren. I feel really happy and relieved knowing it's now done and over with, and even though they had to go through a bit of pain (especially my little girl), I know it's nothing compared to the emotional pain (for us) and physical pain (for my tiny 2.7kg girl) there would be if Bells accidentally got pregnant, or Charlie got away from us and got someone else's dog pregnant!

    There's so many unwanted pups/dog (kittens and cats too) and it makes me feel good knowing I've done my bit with my own pets to prevent them adding more

    the reason why arent getting desexed is cos my fiance doesnt want him to be desexed. Its his choice. I have two cats that are desexed.
    we are responisble if he gets a bitch pregnant.

    Peta, my father in law decided the same thing re his bitch, then she did accidentally fall pregnant and it was ME who was then landed with looking after her and the pups that are now 7 weeks old. I would not wish that on anyone.

    They DO get out, they do fight and sometimes die in fights over bitches and how can you say you will be responsible for any puppies when it is the bitch's owner that will have to deal with any aftermath if they do not have her securely locked away? Dogs can also scent and go for long ways to find a bitch so you may not even know.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.
