  1. What's The Right Thing To Do...

    Well thanks guys, people were asked for opinions, I gave mine and got kicked in the guts repeatedly by poster after poster. And as for the PM I got, I have never received such a nasty, bullying, hurtful PM on any forum before.
  2. What's The Right Thing To Do...

    no, but I think I would have loved to have done law.
  3. Puppy Breeders

    The demand was created in part by a person with a beef with the purebred dog fancy, is based on misinformation and is fuelled by ignorance. No amount of responsible breeding can make an F1 crossbred reliable in terms of appearance, temperment and non-shedding. Guide dogs got out of the game for a reason. The people that continue to churn out F1 crosses don't look beyond their bank balances. There is little money to be made in responsibly and ethically breeding dogs. The people that want one "no matter what" won't be interested in waiting for pups or being vetted by breeders. They'll go where they've always gone until those sources are shut down. That is interesting about the Guide dogs and you people sure do know a lot. I think the demand is because they are 1. Considered cute 2. Non-shedding 3. The latest fad Just my opinion There is no guarantee that they will be non-shedding : Absolutely true, and it is people who know nothing about these crossbreeds making such idiotic statements that keeps these puppy farmers in business! Sorry, should have clarified my statement. Some people THINK they are non shedding, not me.

    This to me? Currently the dogs are evenly matched in size, etc and have only "had words" for about a year. Gaps only abour a 3cm diameter
  5. What's The Right Thing To Do...

    Uhm, why do you think the OP should pay the entire bill? If her dog had not been there, I doubt there would have been an injury. I agree with lorraine, people get talking to rellies, around the water cooler at work, etc. And can I add that situations and peoples attitudes can change. Currently going through a situation with a tenant which started out fantastic for about 5 years and has now turned sour. If the puppy didn't stick its foot under the fence it wouldn't have happened. See therein lies the problem. Many sides to the story. Currently we have gaps along a fence where a lawnmower contractor of a neighbour keeps continually hitting the fence. Our puffball and the neighours puffball continually have "words" through the gap. If our dog gets injured putting her face through a gap the neighbours indirectly have caused who is to blame? I am just saying that there are many sides to a story, that's all.

    I just think if I was the owner of the other pup, I would be getting advice oh the legalities of it all, that's all. It is a huge amount. Love Rottys

    Happy birthday Sally

    You're entitled to your opinion, but i can't see your logic in thinking i should be up for the whole bill. Have you had a bad experience with a Rottweiler or large dog in the past ? Yes they were very nice about the whole situation. Really nice people. No, i asked them about insurance. They had thought about it, but the pup is only 13 weeks old and they hadn't got around to it. No bad experience with Rottys or big dogs at all, why would you assume that? Earlier you said Well there has turned out to be a vet bill, and a very substantial one at that. How long before good neighbours change their minds when they start to think of the money they have to pay. As a previous poster said I think you will find fences a very grey area.

    $4000 and they were quite nice about it I am sure there will be ongoing fees too. I say you should pay the lot but I know I am alone here. (You asked )
  12. Tumor On Paw

    Good replies from the two people. My dog had an amputation for cancer two years ago. If you think you can handle it, I agree with poodlefan A back leg is better than a front leg and a small dog copes better too.(so I have heard, though ours is a medium sized dog) Anyway, wait and see what you are dealing with
  13. Evil Child Spooked My Dog

    Have read this thread from start to finish and in my opinion the kid was doing role play in his costume. I know the types well I think he needed to be gently told that it is not safe to stare down a dog though.
  14. When Is A Puppy Not A Puppy ?

    Thanks for the info. I have often wondered about this.
  15. Puppy Breeders

    Do you think shows like Better Homes and Gardens encourage these types of dogs? I am sure I saw them reviewed on there once
