Dachshund luver If you must breed this doxie please do not do so without careful planning and vet assistance also if you can find a reputable doxie breeder in your area see if they are willing to give you some expert advice! Please keep in mind that you should only breed to your doxie to improve the good qualitys that this breed has!
Don't even tell me to get a life. I have always liked you and I was trying to justify what I said to you, but I don't need you treating me like a kid. I believe that freedom of speech you mentioned applies to me as well. And as for parents, we all know there are all kinds.
I'll treat you how I want especially since you started this by criticizing me! There are all kinds of diff't parents out there you're right but do I have to tiptoe everywhere I go? I think not. You have your opinion as do I and we're both entitled to it. Get over it and back to the topic at hand, animals, not criticizing what I write nor its execution.
i think we can give advice and suggestions to this person with out killing each other...no wonder this girl knew she would hear flack...its a darn shame you cant give and opinion or suggestion with out making a personal dig...
I think it's funny that this carrot person is commenting on a 13 year old being a 'loser' and feels like people that breed dogs are immature and she isn't. A grown person calling a kid a name is the most immature thing I can think of. I think people that call kids 'losers' are just as bad as someone who breeds dogs irresponsibly. It's almost like she's saying that it's important to treat animals with so much respect and love, and not another human being. Nice priorities lady.
I agree. Why call a 13 year old a loser? What did she do? It's not her decision-it is her parents. She has absolutely no control over the situation whatsoever. Carrott- Knowing that she is 13 and her parents want to breed the dog, how does that make her a loser? She has nothing to do with it & she herself does not want the dog to be bred.
In case I'm mistaken here are we not on the topic of animals not how someone replies to someone else's post? Gwen, I did not call anyone immature I said the dog was too immature to be bred. Do not put words in my mouth as I don't appreciate it. If you actually took the time to read my post I would not be sitting here trying to correct you. Did you offer anything to the conversation that was related to the initial post or did you just attempt to bash me? My post may not have been constructive to some but at least it was my opinion on the initial topic. Did you join the board to criticize people's posts and nothing else or to contribute to discussions concerning pets? And HELLO do I know how old this person is? Are ages all of a sudden listed under our names. Is it my responsibility to tiptoe through life in fear of hurting innocent (!) adolescents? No, I think that's the responsibility of the parents. The use of "we" in the original post implies that she herself is involved too. I did not realize she wasn't because she implicated herself in the breeding of the dog i.e "we are going to let her go through 1 more heat then on the next one we are going to breed her he 1st b day was on may 11. we are going to breed her next spring too early?? " That's a lot of "we's" for something her parents are responsible for. If a person is unfamiliar with the situation what are they going to think? Perhaps she could have said "my parents....." Instead of belittling me perhaps you guys should look at the real issue at hand here. This person is going to breed their 1.5 year old dog to get some money back out of it. Is this not a problem to anyone else????
holy crap lady..take some meds and settle down. I'm sorry, but you act as if everyone is just attacking you and you did nothing wrong. But I'm sorry, but it was YOU that started it when you replied to this post with 'loser'. YOU were the one that got off the subject. YOU were the one that started the name calling. And YOU'RE the one getting mad at everyone saying that its your opinion and you have free speech. So what about us? Aren't we entitled to 'free speech' too. I wasn't putting words in your mouth about the immature comment. I was saying that YOU were being immature when you called this girl 'loser'. And this is MY opinion, so if you're entitled to it, so am I. You're just a hypocrite and I find it funny. You tell people not to get off the subject, and you're doing it. You tell people that you have a right to free speech, but have a fit when other people do too, and you make comments about people have no life by sitting on this board and posting arguementative comments, but you seem to be posting a lot of comments and are on her quite a bit yourself. Yes, you have a right to free speech, but its called tact. You could have said, 'I'm sorry, but I don't agree with people that breed dogs because...' and then stated your opinion. But you chose the immature way of doing it.
And also Carrot, if YOU had read the posts you would have seen that I did in fact comment to this girl BEFORE going off on you, so your comment about me joining this just to tick you off, don't flatter yourself.
Gwen you too can get a life. Why not volunteer at a shelter or E: go for a walk or something? I didn't start this at all, I expressed my opinion and then got reemed at by a bunch of members, in turn I'm defending myself. Fly off
Dachshund, I would suggest following minniyars advice and get the tests done...although I dont know if your parents would be willing to do that seeing as how they would have to spend more money on the dog....when it seems like they are only breeding for profit...thats my take on the situation, correct me if im wrong.... Is there anyway that you could talk to your parents and tell them that this may not be a good idea? Give them examples of the hardships these new pups may face because of genetics....and what about the stud? Is he registered? What is the info there? It seems there are too many unanswered questions and I would try to talk to my parents before any breeding takes place.....good luck! Carrot, Chill.
I was just giving some advice as to what the girl could do about the breeding that was to take place with her dog...that her PARENTS are apparently going to be responsible for, and I noticed the obvious argument that transpired within the topic posts...I think I can post pretty much anything I want to as long as it is pet-related and I don't believe I have to answer to you in the process....again...chill and just take it easy
Carrot, Have you ever heard of an intervention? This is one and all of us are asking you to chill. We can not all be wrong. And no, I haven't been involved in this conversation until now but when you start insulting people, telling them to lose weight, get a life etc. I now have something to say. After all, I have a right to free speech, don't I? You can attack what I have written to you, I'm sure you will, but I still feel this way.
