    PS another thing to consider with a co-ownership of a nice male is that you need to be in agreement about all the potential breedings. Unless you are certain you share the same standards of health...

    Personnally, I perfer not to co-own unless I know the people well, and that includes people who have puppies from me.

    You may be in a better position to take a puppy down the road, and then if you...

    Forgot to say.. If you are considering taking a male, wait til he has teeth (a correct bite) and testicles (two).

    If I were you, I would wait to see if there is a puppy in this litter you would want in any way or shape, or if you would prefer to take the stud fee.

    Hopefully your contract allows for you to...

    Just wanted to say, I adore Welsh Terriers!

    I don't know why people are idiots, but some truly are.

    I would not bend down to your dog, but would say something really offensive to the owner of...

    I would go for 2 x 4" wire on either metal T posts or wood posts. If it is stretched tight, it actually looks nice, and very much blends into the background.

    Yes, you might get your money back if...

    Oh that is funny!

    Years ago, my husband got a frantic phone call at work from his (now ex) wife- "Oh my God! Pasha (their gray tabby cat!) has been hit by a car and is dead on the road! You have...

    OMG I can't believe this!

    I scoop at least a minimum of twice a day, usually three or four times a day, in the area near the house or in the runs. Of course, I have very large dogs, but still! ...

    Still offended by the "pet" terminology.

    They are your dog, your cat, your companion animal, or just your animal, but to me "pet" trivializes the relationship into something frivolous or childish....

    I prefer owner, very much dislike parent or guardian, for the legal implications but also the "ick" factor. They are definitely members of my family, but animal members.

    I am a Breeder, Owner,...

    I also understand that when a dog injures one cruciate, they are at increased risk to injure the other one.

    I would have a hard time jumping a dog with an injured cruciate, whether in Agility or...

    My 60 year old sister has ALS, and two beloved older cats. She recently placed these cats in a wonderful home, which happened to be the minister of her church.

    The point is, we do not know if we...

    Yes, perhaps these folks have made provisions for the puppy. I would have thought they probably would have, but you evidently think they wouldnt have, so perhaps you know something we do not.

    Yes, bear in mind it is not really a "fence", but rather, a boundary training method. People can enter and harm/steal your dogs, other dogs or animals can enter and attack, and like all training...

    With lure coursing, the emphasis is on the chase portion, they are not tested on their ability to be called off the lure.

    So sorry for your loss, OP!

    I understand now how you must feel about lure coursing, and as I've said, your perceptions are accurate.

    However, it does go beyond that....lots of the behaviors...
