i recently found out that my littlest eeevil brother's girlfriend bred her two Bostons. ("they're cute and they have papers!") they asked me what they needed to do and, since spaying was apparently out of the question, i told them to talk to their vet. i've never bred an animal and didn't think i had any practical advice to give them. well, the last time i talked to my mom, the pups were a couple of weeks old and hadn't been docked. it's not that they'd made a decision not to dock they thought they could wait until the pups were a few weeks old before they docked them. oye. call me crazy, but that's the sort of thing i would've found out before i even considered breeding a dog.
i guess i shouldn't be so cranky about it. i should just be happy that mama dog didn't have to have a C-section and that all the pups and mama dog made it through fine.

Barf.

I'm not 100% sure that Bostons do get docked. I think they might have the weird curlique tail like a Bulldog or a Frenchie. Hence problems with hemivertibrae. Someone please correct me if I am wrong, tho.

Yes, but you have common sense. HTH!!!11!!11!1

Well, sometimes my sadistic mind hopes that more bad things would happen during BYB births so that they'd see that making puppies isn't always wonderful.

i know. i was gobsmacked. harriet was with me (i was visiting my mom), and i pointed at her and said "she's cute, too, and had papers, but that didn't stop me from having her spayed." that seems like a big, fat duh to me. what's wrong with people?!?

well i'll be damned. i just looked, and you're correct. docking is a DQ. that's what i get for assuming!

apparently, it's not so very common. waaah! i'm afraid to go see these puppies, since i'm infatuated with Bostons. there's no way i want to tempt myself, because i refuse under any circumstance to reward them for being dumbasses.

well, there is that, but then i think that it's not the poor dogs' fault that their owners are asswagons. they shouldn't have to pay the price, even though they're usually the only ones who do. bastards!

People suck. Enough said.
Mooch is very handsome and probably could have finished his CH had I been inclined, but he was neutered, too. June might be spayed if her health certs don't pan out. She's beautiful, though. Duh, indeed.

Well, you didn't know, and did have the sense to look it up! So no worries.

I know. I should have said you have what should be common sense.

Good for you! But I understand your frustration. I can't go into any pet stores that sell dogs cuz they always have Puggz and are starting to have Corgis. Emotion: sad I want so badly to take them out of that, but I won't reward the store for being stoopit.

Yeah, I gotta agree. I wish maybe something bad would happen to the /people/ though.
