  1. [quote name='cheechweech'] I don't believe in cutting off pieces of living things so that they can conform with some arbitrary standard, or so that they "look right".[/quote] No? Do you have your ears pierced? The only difference I see between piercings and cropping is you choose to get a hole in you, and you choose for teh dog whether he gets to keep his ears or not.
  2. [quote name='DivineOblivion19'][quote name='Sabine']:wink: ...........as far as tails go: I don't think there are any tails out there as vulnerable as a Dane tail. :roll: :P :-? Why don't we humans amputate our fingers when we're little? We may cut ourselves or break them some day. Same argument. :wink: :P :)[/quote] [color=indigo]If I cut my dog's tail off she simply wouldn't be able to wag, her life would not change.[/color] :-?[/quote] But she'd be able to wiggle her whole but t instead like I've seen a lot of docked dogs do. :) I think its adorable. We, however, u
  3. I'm not against it per se, however I'd never have it done to any of my future dogs. Not only because of the pain, but because cropping and docking severly limits a dogs ability to communicate with other canines. However, I hate using the excuse "leaving dogs as nature intended" considering nature did not shape dogs, we humans did for specific puposes. Can you that are against C/D say it shouldn't be done in working dogs to prevent injury? Many spaniels and pointers have thin tails that are easily damaged, so they're docked to prevent a painful tail injury. When docking was ou
  4. Unless she has a really sensitive stomach (which she does doesn't she?) I doubt it would be the baytril. Lucky was on it for a foot infection, and he has a really sensitive stomach too with no bad effects. My rat girls are also on Baytril for a respiratory infection, ad no side effects either. I would call the vet too.
  5. [quote name='Lucky Chaos']The pain of losing them never truly goes away does it? It'll be three years in a couple weeks since I lost Koda, but it seems like no time at all. Maybe because they never truly leave us, never leave our hearts. Losing them has to be the hardest time of pet ownership ever, sometimes I'm not sure why we'd put ourselves through it. But its worth it, even for the short amount of time they're with us. What a gorgeous girl she was, and I know she's playing happily at the bridge, waiting.[/quote] Sorry, handsome boy, not girl. One of my hamsters is named Smudge,

  7. Hey I think its cute, whatever floats your boat. Its not like its harming anything, or they want to breed the dogs. Not that I'd ever do it personally.
  8. Aren't they born all white from their dalmatian ancestry? (Do I even have the right breed?) She could darken, but then again she could be mixed with something if she was a shelter pup too.
  9. [quote name='Jessashelony'][quote name='Lucky Chaos'] One small request though, is it possible to put it on top of your other siggy? Just cause I have to scroll over to read posts since its wide. :)[/quote] Is it that wide? It's fine on mine... I will change it... :wink:[/quote] Its probably my screen, it keeps adjusting itself lately. :-? I think I need a new one. Thanks though!
  10. Thats awesome Izzy! And we all know Michele deserves it! One small request though, is it possible to put it on top of your other siggy? Just cause I have to scroll over to read posts since its wide. :)
  11. Just one more rescue(s) she'll never be able to get a dog from again! [url]http://forum.animalrescuecooperation.org/index.php?topic=5309.0[/url] If anyone wants to submit any corrections to what I wrote, feel free. I'm so confused/upset about this whole thing I can't be sure if I got it all straight. :-?
  12. Wow, thanks Lorraine, for taking the time to come here and investighate. Please don't feel bad, Naomi fooled all of us here for almost two years as well, until she was on her third dog (One was PTS for "health" reasons, the other gieven away, and not long ago she aquired the third), then we realized something was suspicious and confronted her. Most of us, myself included, took Cody's death pretty hard, not to mention the story that went along with it was proven fabricated. As far as I know no one really knows if he bit a child, or Naomi herself, but it has been confirmed the bite did NOT happe
  13. Yes, in a perfect world shelters COULD find perfect homes for less than perfect dogs, however, the overpopulation problem is staggering. Many wonderful ADOPTABLE dogs get killed because of space, shelters don't even have the resources or time to work with aggressive or problem animals. Unfortunately, thats the way it is. The adoptable ones get adopted, and the ones that would sit in the shelter possibly for months don't leave. :(
  14. Wow, she's gorgeous! I could see kelpie, although they're pretty rare. She does have more of a kelpie rather than a border collie build, with the BC colouring. However, she could easily be purebred too. Here's a couple pics of a purebred working bred smoothcoated, prick-eared BC.

And may fill out more.
  15. I'm not really going to get into this, because I do want to own a "wild" animal one day (a parrot, pionus to be exact) but I just wanted to say Ravyn's posts are amazing, she really does make good points that make you think. I just don't see where you can put a line between wild and domesticated, since all animals WERE wild at some point, dogs thousands of years ago, while some like rats have only been domesticated 200 years or so. SOme are still being domesticated, like birds.
