I admit, I can be a bit too harsh sometimes... but when it comes to spaying and neutering, I'll take my chances. It's TOO important!

There are about 9 beagles sitting in our pound right this minute and every last one of them will be dead by the middle of next week. There's twice that many hounds.

People around think just because it's a purebred, it should be re-bred.. over and over.. and then they'll sell them for $100 a piece as hunting dogs! Make some money! And then the new owner finds out the gene pool wasn't quite as instinctually mapped as it should have been and the dogs won't hunt. Off to the pound they go and they try again with the next litter. Meanwhile, the pound just keeps killing them off, week after week, year after year.
