OP wanted this to happen. Said in April, the female would be spayed immediately. Now, she is saying she didn't spay, because the bitch went into heat. It is November. In all those months, she couldn't get the female spayed? I don't buy it.

I don't think anyone does anymore. I sure don't.

OP, spay abort. Best thing to do for these pups to avoid the "oops" litter and surely half of them ending up in shelters.

Agree. We've done a lot of spay/terminates. The bitch doesn't realize what she's missing and she's better off, as is your own pocket book should she need an emergency c-section.
Call around as some vets are old fashioned and won't do them if they can "tell" she's pregnant.
Our vet we use most for that procedure sees firsthand daily the results of pet overpopulation and they'll do spay/terminate right up to the delivery date.

And just as much as this, I could take pride in knowing that I was being responsible with the integrity of the breed.

Integrity of the breed and responsible breed ownership -- so many things to talk about on these topics. I'm not going to change the world. I can only do what I think is right and responsible, and be an example to as many as I can, which really isn't very many. And the world continues to turn.

Good luck with your puppies, place them well. This is, indeed, the other half of the equation with responsible breed ownership -- finding good, loving, forever homes for the puppies you bring into this world. Please put more care into this part than you put into the first part.

I think the OP just wanted to stir up some dust...No one that reads this forum would post something that she knows people are so adamantly opposed...just my opinion

Since less than a half dozen posts have actually addressed the OP's question and the rest are all the typical nastiness that tends to go with "oops" litter threads, I am closing this.
