No offense....but unless you know your breed inside and outside, and unless you know how to properly care for an animal (who DOESN"T know about parvo vaccinations????) then you have no business breeding or even owning animals.
When a life is at stake, how can ignorance be an excuse? How sad!
I'm pretty hardcore, yes. See? I TOLD you I was rabid!
And yes, as an owner, or as a breeder, it was totally his fault for being unprepared. If he had a child who came down with polo because that child was not vaccinated, it would still be his fault. It is his responsibility to know as the dependent does not have the mental capacity to care for itself.
That's why finding a good breeder is so freakin' hard. There are so many variables to look for when purchasing an animal that will be part of your family for 15 years to come!
I want a breeder to grill me about my home environment! If they didn't, I wouldn't buy from them, because I want to grill them, too, about their breeding stock, health problems, temperment problems, etc.
If people would be more careful about which breeds and breeders they choose, and become more educated about breeding in general, there wouldn't be as many animals euthenized in shelters.
And this is my rant, kids. Sorry if I've been offensive- but look at it like this: if I'm offensive because I've touched a nerve, you should reevaluate your thinking, because I ONLY want the BEST for the furkids that love us.
