  1. Naaaay......... :lol: ......or maybe? :D :P [URL=http://imageshack.us][img]http://img393.imageshack.us/img393/6403/rorypup14oct040bo.jpg[/img][/URL] .........picture the ears floppy....... then maybe. :wink: [URL=http://imageshack.us][img]http://img393.imageshack.us/img393/5215/120605daytona17sh.jpg[/img][/URL]
  2. Daytona: I'll take a nice sofa anyday ! :lol: Tessa: Huh?
  3. Right on, TDG ! :thumbs: There would be no need for a law against altering an animal's looks, if breeders and KC's would not endorse the cropping and docking. I blame AKC, it's judges and the breeders of these breeds. If there are no cropped/docked animals available, people will simply buy them the way nature intended them to be. Hey better yet: Why don't breeders start breeding for that look they so desire? (I'm being sarcastic..... :wink:) I wish my dane had floppy ears....... looks much cuter than the spock-look. :D :P
  4. Please don't get upset :buzi: - I just really would like to know, why the US-breeders don't join the rest of the world in this....... that's all. :niewiem: Obviously, the "customers" would prefer the natural look. :wink: There's a start ! :) :thumbs:
  5. [quote]oh what a can of worms you have opened! [/quote] :oops: *duck and run* :oops: I'm impressed though, how civil the discussion is going. :thumbs: Ask that question in a Dane forum, and you better pack up and leave !! :o :o They get real defensive, and when everything points toward "wrong-doing", they get real aggressive. :lol: :P [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.[/quote] There's a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
  6. I was being sarcastic. Oh well............ :roll: :angel:
  7. Thank you so much for your kind words.......... it does hurt, and it's amazing how much we love our fur-kids, isn't it? :cry: Giaco lost his will to fight after Purzi was gone, and he just followed her....... It still breaks my heart. :(
  8. :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 :)
  9. Bravo, TDG !! Well said !! :klacz: :kciuki:
  10. My first dog, Cindy, was tied to a post along the Autobahn in Germany at the ripe young age of 3 months. From there she was put in a shelter, where I adopted her from at age 8 months. I had a rough three years with her, and after that, she was the best dog I ever had.

I got to pick her up at a breeders place near Freiburg, Germany
  11. :o ...........same thing: Unnecessary altering of an animal's appearence. :niewiem: :wink:
  12. Sorry, if I offended you ......... I didn't realize, that cropping was done for other than cosmetic reasons. :wink:
  13. GREAT POST, TDG !! :thumbs: My question is, WHY ON EARTH is the AKC still ENDORSING the cropping and docking of ears and tails? :evil: THEY are the ones with the "power" to influence this practise. As long as THEY promote the mutilation of dogs, and as long as judges mark uncropped/-docked dogs down, it will be done. For the sake of it, let's throw the declawing in there too. :wink: Isn't it time, the AKC joined the millenium? :roll: Isn't it about time, breeders of such breeds get together and quit doing it ? It's in their power......... :wink:
  14. Guys - let me tell you something: If docking really helps to keep the living-room less bloody, then all Danes should be docked. :wink: Very often, Danes suffer from bloody tails because they tend to smack them into dooframes, tables and other corners of the house or in the car. Therefore, lots of Danes have to have their tails removed because they don't heal once they are injured. What really makes me kind of wonder, because if that's the case, it's called an A M P U T A T I O N , not a docking. Isn't that weird? :wink: Tails are usually docked when the pups are just a few days old
  15. Oh no - is it parvo? :-? :cry: I just hope the little girl makes it !! I wish her all the luck in the world.............. so sad !! :(
