Bobm, thank you for the very good post. Spay-neuter is a part of animal rightist agenda to eliminate animal ownership altogether, the first step would be mass spay-neutering. AR brainwash vets and influence school teachers. I decide to breed or not to breed, depending on likelihood of finding good homes for my puppies. All my dogs are intact, healthy and I do not see any problem, if I see one of my females is in heat. I just lock her up for 21 days.
