My personal opinion - we don't need legislation... we need smarter pet buyers (more educated if nothing else) that don't fall prey to "instant gratification". There is no where near the funding to support paying for inspectors to inforce strict regul...

Breeding is fun, easy, and money making... until Mother Nature reminds you that you only have part of the say in how the story goes...

The less you know as a breeder, the bigger Mother Nature bites you in the rear!

Argh... while I understand that AKC is trying to get it's registration numbers back up... this is NOT the way to do it.

And I REALLY hate how dishonest some people are...

Illusion I can echo what you said almost word for word... Do I think that there are breeders out there that contribute to the Shelter populations - YES. Do I think the finger needs to be pointed at ALL breeders... NO. The same can be said for pet own...

I agree with NoDogYet.

When you breed a dog, you take on all the baggage of the breeding decisions made by every breeder before you in that pedigree. If you don't trust her... how do you know she didn't breed two dogs together with hip di...

40 lbs is not unheard of for a Sheltie about 17 inches in size. He looks like he's pretty "substantial". I have a 15 3/4 inch girl who is 32 lbs - she's "a lot" of girl - but at her ideal weight. She has never been shown (she has a white mismark spot...

They always skip the Sheltie... grrr...

I did kind of crack myself up... I apparently have shown to Bev Capstick enough times now that I recognize her voice from across the room... Capstick gave Stormy's litter sis her first BOB last sprin...

EVERY dog is different. There is no textbook answer to that question. The better thing to learn/research are what danger signs look like. Some bitches get into trouble 30 minutes into labor. Some aren't having problems until after they have had a pup...
