PSA of the Month

Momma and I were sitting around the other night thinking of ideas for posts and we decided to allow one post a month to be a PSA (Public Service Announcement).

So here is this month's PSA- Several years ago, one of Momma's friends(Jane) had a well-loved Samoyed named Casper. Another friend had to find a home for her son's Samoyed named Spirit or he was going to drop her off at the humane society. (a big Boo Hiss to all people who no longer want their dog because it's no longer a cute puppy). So Momma told Jane that Spirit needed a home and Casper needed a friend and that their names worked well together. Jane went to see Spirit, fell in love with her and brought her home.

Life is good, the whole family loves Spirit, she's fed good quality food and has good health care. But Momma forgot to ask a very important question. Were Casper and Spirit fixed. You know where I'm going with this.

A few months later, Jane comes to work and says that they had been very good about keeping Casper and Spirit apart when she was in heat but their daughter had forgotten to close the door once and Spirit was going to have puppies.

A few weeks later, Spirit has 5 pups. Now one pup is the mascot of a winery in California, one lives down the street, one lives in Montana and the other with Jane, Spirit, Casper and the rest of the family.

To give her credit, Jane followed the Rule of 7s so they would be well socialized and screened the homes well. She didn't plan to keep the two pups but could not find good homes for them. BTW, she lives in a town that only allows 3 dogs. So only two can go outside at a time and she walks them in pairs.

So the lesson of the day is spay and neuter your pups or you may end up with more that you planned on.

I'm fixed and Brice will be as soon as he comes to live with us,
Princess Eva

P.S. Casper has been neutered and Spirit has been spayed. Jane learned her lesson well.

We've only been gone a few days, and so much has happened in your home. Puppies, rehoming, parks and a pending trip to Kansas.

Eva, you are one busy princess. Great news on the brother. Nice PSA too.
We'll try to get the human over here to be a bit more consistent. She's given some excuse about busy at work and with the new pup.

the only ones who can reproduce in this house are the turtles and they don't live together so it's not a problem :) Mom says she would get them done if she could.

I came from ABTCRescue, and they make sure we all have a date with the vet before we go to forever homes. I'm lost my b*&#s but I still life my leg on everything that is stationery, and some things that are not, lol, like my friends if they lay in the doggy pool too long! I can't wait to see photos from your trip!
