My dog is KC registered pedigree, not castrated and I bought him from a breeder.

And I'm not going to apologise for it.

I bought a Jack Russell from some travellers once (he was a bold boy grin), he once stole the next door neighbours 'resting`' sunday joint shock.

He died years ago, still miss his antics. Enjoy your dog, good luck.

and the point is?

PacificDogwood Mon 29-Aug-11 20:13:43

Shall we talk about living rooms wink?

The OP is 'poking' the posters on this topic who seem to equate her behaviour with mass slaughter of innocents, global warming etc. I don't think this will end well.

The Pathan - my sister's bonny little dog was also a travellers puppy. Sister saw both the mum and dad and like what she saw. Grand little dog.

so what? There is no need to apologise for it.

If you have just popped on here to stir up emotions and trouble on a Bank Holiday Monday fire away. If you have came here to tell us something interesting about your breed of Dog fair enough.

I second that... point is??

Actually I know what you're on about and I couldn't give a monkeys. I'd like everyone to go for rescue but I'm wise enough to know that it doesn't/can't/won't happen.

As long as your dog is happy, healthy, well cared for and you don't abuse it in anyway... Enjoy.

Each to their own I say.

I had a jack russel as a kid, they werent even recognised as a pedigree breed back then <too old>

MarshaBrady Mon 29-Aug-11 20:19:42

Is KC registration frowned upon?

CoffeeIsMyFriend Mon 29-Aug-11 20:19:43

well I dont know what OP is on about. I also think OP should explain.
And personally I find it rather rude of them to assume that those of us with a KC reg pedigree dog should apologise for it.

GeeinItLaldy Mon 29-Aug-11 20:21:46

They're still not, dita. Well, they are in so much as most people can identify a Jack Russell and therefore they are a recognisable breed, but they're still not a Kennel Club registered breed.

ditavonteesed Mon 29-Aug-11 20:24:00

I did not know that <maybe not as old as I initially thought> he was the funniest dog ever, although not the brightest spark.

LadyDamerel Mon 29-Aug-11 20:24:48

It's a deliberate attempt to start a ruck.

Poor form, imo.

There's enough discussion of the 'issues' within the Doghouse topic on the two threads in active convos atm.

ThePathanKhansWoman Mon 29-Aug-11 20:25:33

I'd love to get another, he was such a loveable rogue, so smart. Had small dog syndrome, loved a row, with the biggest dog in sight smile.

ditavonteesed Mon 29-Aug-11 20:26:55

mine did too, actually my border terrier does as well, must be a terrier thing, they think they are german shepards that got shrunk or something, terriers are the best small dogs never boring.

ditavonteesed Mon 29-Aug-11 20:27:49

oh and she is a pedigree, kc registered and bought from a breeder, cant say as anybody has ever made me feel the need to apologise for these facts.

QuietTiger Tue 30-Aug-11 11:47:44

What's your point FarQueue?

If you want an uncastrated, pedigree dog bought from a breeder, then that's up to you. In the same way it's up to me to think you a twat for trying to start a "debate" over a "hot topic" issue.

As you were.

DooinMeCleanin Tue 30-Aug-11 14:27:28

I don't get the point either? Buying a KC registered puppy from a reputable breeder is fine.

Lots of people like Pedigree dogs for lots of reasons. They're not my cup of tea, but then niether are Hamsters. I don't judge Hamster owners.

I think you mean to stir up trouble about him not being castrated? Again I don't see what the problem is. Hire him out as a stud to a reputable KC breeder if you wish and can afford the necessary health tests. I have no problems with reputable breeders, only numpties, BYBs and puppy farmers.

As an aside if you do not want to breed from him have a chat to your vet about the health benefits of castration, such as lower risks of cancers etc. It might interest you.

Does anyone know what the weather will be like in the South this weekend? I'm taking part in a rescue fundraiser, I do hope that it'll be sunny.

PacificDogwood Tue 30-Aug-11 18:37:34

Ooooh, a conversation about the weather: much better grin.

Sorry, no idea what it's going to be like in the Souf, but it's positively autumnal her angry.

HTH

PacificDogwood Tue 30-Aug-11 18:38:19

here. FFS

Vallhala Tue 30-Aug-11 18:52:42

It is here too! Cold, grey and threatening rain! grin

thefirstMrsDeVere Tue 30-Aug-11 18:57:28

A puppy wouldnt be castrated would it?

You have to wait till they are 6mths (I know that is still a puppy but not a puppy puppy).

I bought my first dog two years ago. I always have rescues but I wanted a puppy and I knew I wouldnt qualify for a rescue round here AND I didnt want a terrier/staffie.

I bought a cross breed though cos they are my favs.

And its freezing down south at the moment BTW

ditavonteesed Tue 30-Aug-11 18:59:20

freezing here in the north as well, could turn round bt the weekend though, fingers crossed.
