I'm kinda wondering what the purpose of pitbull1 starting this thread was. It almost appears as if they wanted to get hackled up and then cuss people out for being honest and caring. They're reading too much in to some of the threads and not enough into others. I may be wrong, but it sounded as if the "stop giving her calcium" was more of a warning for just in case you were giving it to her...
Pit...I am new and reading through topics. Unless you have thick skin, I don't think this is the place to find assistance without everyone jumping on a soap box. The fact that you found this site means you are looking for help. Might have to just go to your vet for that. Public forums are ALWAYS the place to find internet warriors. Hope you get what you need done with your dogs and I pray for all the unwanted animals in the world to be loved.
(I may as well add to the pile...) Pit1, having a fenced yard "so that the dogs can run around" does not necessarily a good owner make. Someone who lives a lifestyle where it's conducive to exercise, walk, and play with their dogs would have the kind of home you'll need for a puppy or dog. Some people use a fenced yard as an excuse to set the dog outside with no interaction. How are you going to check for this? After it's too late? And please - you KNOW you're not going to take a puppy back, right?! People that breed for money don't take their puppies back. IF you're trying to be responsible IF your dog is pregnant, are you prepared to keep the pups until they're at LEAST 8 wks old, preferably 12 weeks? Do you have the income, time, space, help and attention span for a litter of puppies for an additional 2-3 months? Believe me, it will seem like forever!
Contrary to what this post shows you, this is a great place to get assistance. If you go through the threads here you will find that more are assisted every day then you could imagine. On the other hand, each thread needs to be looked at for what it is, not grouped with any other. I think when you have an understanding of the information given and what the individual situation is, perhaps you would have a better understanding as to why right now there are a couple of threads where folks such as myself are not too pleased with the incredible amount of disrespect and irresponsibility owners are showing their dogs, or puppies in one case. Truly there are some dispicable things we are reading about hence why you are seeing some of the responses. I have to say this is basically a huge group of very educated and experienced people be it breeders, techs, rescue, all of whom offer a huge helping hand.
WOW!!! I go back to a question asked earlier....how old is the OP? Because the lack of proper grammer and the aggressiveness towards others in addition to the lack of knowledge concerning the first step in getting prego leads me to believe this is a child with nothing better to do than to come on here and start a fire...and then curse at those whom convey their strong feelings and advice. Nice...real nice OP. GET A LIFE! If you're that concerend and you don't like anyones advice on here then go see your vet...you do have one of those right?...and seek advice from them. BUT OH WAIT....what are you going to do when you don't like that advice either...start a fight with them? Go get your pups fixed and don't bring anymore unwanted pups into a world that can be oh so cruel to them!!!!
Honestly i really don't understand why this site is here if i cannot come on here and ask a question. Just because i might not be very intelligent on dog breeding knowledge does not mean that i don't care for my dogs and also does not mean that i a m here to cause a "fire" or i am a little kid. I simply thought that this forum was for other dog owners to come on and look and ask questions if i had any. Now i know the answer because someone was kind enough to show me a website about the process and other information. But for all of you other dog owners that are getting mad and offended cause i asked a question about dog breeding get off this site and i hope your not an administrator cause honestly your not doing a great job on helping people.. I will be deleting my profile from here cause this forum is not a forum for dog owners to look or ask for help with anything.
Normap the 1st couple I was could able to PM them back. They sent me a PM first so I'm not sure what that was about? Yes they do sound like a kid, but why come on a message board then. Are they just trolling or do they really have a pg dog. I mean they must be young not to know about getting pg?
PM 1 please whatecver
PM 2 listen truepits i didnt say i was a genius ok and by the way i did know i was sending a private message so sick a sock in it ok
PM 3 see why would you stoop to this level? "get a dictionary and be as smart as i am"? your obviously an idiot. Thanks again for showing me this site is not for people who need answers to questions about their animals.
I'm still confused about the situation and the way the dog got pg. On a walk they said. That is just too weird for the dogs to tie 2 days in a row on a walk.
