Convesation On Yahoo Answers About Dog Health

Ruth asks…

How do i convince my mother in law to spade or neuter her dogs…?

She has 2 toy poodles about 2lbs each and she let’s them mate constantly. She has had 4 sets of puppies back to back. I’m worried about the dogs health. She’s around a year and a half old. Can’t this hurt the dog?

Yahoo Answers answers:

Take her to the shelter on euthanasia day. Show her the hundreds of healthy dogs in your local shelter that are being put to death every day for want of a good home – the home that her constant breeding is taking from the dogs on death row.

Then have her speak to her vet about the health issues she is creating by allowing her female to produce one litter after another. The poor little thing probably will have a very short life being used as a puppy machine.

It that doesn’t work – then you’re S.O.L. Unfortunately there are some people in the world who are either so stupid or so ignorant that you just can’t get through to them.

Convesation On Yahoo Answers About Puppy Training 101

Chris asks…

What’s some good info to know on Pekingese?

My friend has puppies, I have 2 more weeks before picking up the puppy. So is there anything I should know about Pekingese?

BTW I have a boxer/lab mix now she is 6 years old.
Plus I have 2 kids – 4 years old and 1 years old.
BTW where the dog is now (with momma and dadda) there is a 6 year old and a 1 year old living there.
The puppy will be 6 weeks old when I pick it up.

Yahoo Answers answers:

Hi there,

Following are links to both the AKC’s and UKC’s websites which discusses the Pekingese breed in detail. It would be very good for you to read about the breed:

Also, I’ve attached a link to an article about the timing of picking up your puppy – this recommends picking up the new puppy between 7 and 12 weeks, and also discusses socialization and training.


I hope you find this information helpful. Best of luck to you and your new pup!


Followup in response to kch05’s comment:

While I have never owned a Pekingese and respect your comment, the AKC disagrees with you regarding their temperament. I think that early socialization with other dogs is absolutely KEY.

The AKC’s site states
“Pekingese possess a regal dignity, intelligence and self-importance, making them good natured, opinionated and affectionate family companions. Their small size makes them a good choice for apartment life, but they are sometimes difficult to housebreak. They are relatively inactive indoors and do not need a yard, but enjoy walks. Because of their long undercoats, Pekes need at least an hourly brushing session per week.”

Yahoo Answers answers:

Or clothes fell off the hanger and the noise scared him. If your closet doesn’t make any wierd noises he will be fine. Maybe it is time for Frebreeze? Lol..
