In the best interests of the bitch?
But honestly, Christina, is breeding *ever* truly in the best interests of the bitch? I guess that's where I'm struggling - I don't see the difference between placing this bitch on a breeding agreement and placing any other bitch on a breeding agreement.
In the best interests of her newbie possible owners who have no clue on this planet about breeding?
Possibly not, and I'd imagine that's why the breeder is bringing the bitch back for breeding/whelping. And again, if they're not comfortable with it certainly it's not an option for either party.
If Kaylee is that vitally important to this breeder as a brood bitch, she would keep her herself.
Of course, but if a perfect home comes along why not place the bitch there?
Obviously this is not the situation the breeder planned for (having the bitch returned) and so I believe she should put the best interests of Kaylee above all else and place her in a loving and non-breeding home.
Of course, the argument could be made that placing her yet again is contrary to her best interests, as well....
My opinion of course and I stick by it.
Of course, and I've no intention of trying to change it. Just trying to understand, or maybe define, a little better. I rarely disagree with you, and I don't entirely on this either.
