I'm convinced it doesn't hurt because I have EXPERIENCE, not an Internet article. :lol:

OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

Yes, my male will have cropped ears. Why? So he can have a better chance at placing in shows, and because I think it looks nice. It also doesn't hurt. Sure, it can if you go to some cheap-o vet...but ANYTHING can go wrong that way. I do not see ear cropping as cruel at all...if done correctly. It do...

OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

I'll do what I want with my dog and anybody bigoted enough to try to make me feel bad for it can kiss my booty. :lol:. I'll pass on that one. Your arguments, if it can even be called that, reflects just about all problems we have with dog ownership, lack of respect for living creatures and plain fl...

Me and my dog

If you have questions, this is the place to ask them. For the most part, PBF is more polite than...*cough* OTHER places....and while I think you were coming off a little trollish (sorry, just being honest) you can get the answers you want here. Just accept what people tell you and don't argue! Lol. ...

OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

However, I will have cropped ears on my show dog. If you don't like it, you should write to the kennel clubs and request that crooked ears be allowed and not faulted, but don't gripe at the people that do it because they want their dogs to place. It is not a painful procedure at all. It amazes me at...

OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

Just because YOU have not heard a reason you found plausible, does not mean there is none and that all croppers and dockers are vain. Sorry, but that's your opinion, NOT fact. To compare it to broken legs is ridiculous. Do you know how often a hunting dog rips its ears and tail? WAY more often than ...

Vanity? That's ridiculous. I understand some of you may disagree, but please don't start on the "I am better than you because I don't crop ears" thing. Not saying you are, but that argument gets old real quick. Ear cropping and tail docking do serve function in functional dogs.

Hello from Colorado

Welcome to forum.

Firstly, there is no such thing as a "red nose" pit bull. The color of their nose is just that, but not a breed.

They need LOTS of exercise.

Fortunately there are many you can rescue who have already had this done.


Plenty, but I will be getting a puppy then from a reputable breeder. That's years from now though.

The Cost of Feeding Raw?

The above is true. Factor in you aren't going to buying the same meats that YOU eat. You're going to be getting things butchers throw out, you're going to be going to meat departments in grocery stores buying meats past their sell by date for cheaper, 20% of it all is going to be organ and bone, whi...

The Cost of Feeding Raw?

Sorry for the double post, but I just sat here and crunched the numbers. Based on FransterDoo's formula, it would cost me about $150 a month to feed raw. I don't find that particularly cheap. Especially since the cost of vet visits, toys, treats, supplements, etc will not vary between a kibble fed ...

The Cost of Feeding Raw?

I've only read the OP.

I haven't started raw yet because I need to get a freezer, but it's much cheaper and MUCH better for your dog. Especially if you live in the south like me. ;)
