Lilie I used to be a bit flattered and annoyed when folks would ask me if I use Hondo for breeding. Then, when they started asking if I'd use my Lacy for breeding (and nobody knows what a Lacy is) I realized that it's not the dog they are interested in, it's just the testicles.

SunCzarina Meanwhile back on target, Morgan used to get propositioned often. People would pull us over walking. I learned to ask 'why is your dog qualified to breed with her?' Never once saying she's a $5 bitch from warwick animal shelter.

When Luther was alive, I would get asked to call people when they had puppies. When Otto was a puppy, half the people who said anything about them assumed he was her puppy.

Venus has only been propositioned once, I gave the person her breeder's name. She's not typey like Morgan was and it's rare outside of training class that someone actually says 'black shepherd'. I kinda like it that way, when people think she's a mutt, they don't ask the question!

Morgan, she was a pretty lady.

Bob_McBob Any time someone finds out my male is intact, the first question is "are you planning to breed him?" I'm quite surprised I've never had anyone try to push neutering except when specifically discussing hormone-related nuisance behaviours. I've actually had just the opposite experience on a couple occasions: semi-rants by people who are vehemently opposed to neutering and how it "changes" the dog and they will "never be the same" and so on.

My most awkward conversation was with a Mennonite guy who had a red WGSL male who was quite young, completely untrained, and definitely didn't have a great temperament. He was a BYB/puppy mill breeder who imported the dog from Europe to stud. He kept telling me how many times the dog had been bred already and asking whether I wanted to breed my male. His dog was wandering around humping everything in sight, and he would only stop him if it was another male dog. Very uncomfortable

Even people who really should know better ask me if I have breeding rights on my dog. He's a great dog with a good pedigree and nice personality, but that's so far from a basis for deciding whether he's suitable to breed.

SuperG I've had countless encounters by the Paparazzi hiding in the woods at dog parks and other places my dog takes me to walk and run. My dog will just shoo them away.

I agree.

I have both blood clotting genes, I am diabetic and I have Scleroderma. I could have kids but I really shouldn't because of my health issues which is perfectly fine with me because I don't want them anyways but I do feel bad for those who cannot have children when they really do want them.

My close friend cannot carry a baby and she is ok with that because she really doesn't want kids but she is donating her eggs to those who cannot, she has done it 3 times already.

ZoeD1217 There sure are some judgmental people in here! !

No one has asked to buy Zoe and no of course there is no price that could ever convince me to part with her. I love her like she is one of my 2 legged children and they love her to death.

ETA: Sometimes living alone is better than living with people, depending on who the people are! I've had some roommates that I dreaded going home to over the years, lol. But as long as you have pets you're not truly "alone".

I admire people who are happy being independent.

I would rather someone be honest about their wants and needs. Why should we judge perfect strangers and hold them to standards that we feel are important? Silly thing to waste your time on IMO

To each their own.

My husband is so independant, I have no idea what he's done for the last 8 years. He used to hairspray little hairs all over the bathroom wall, made me crazy but he's dead now

My life was far less complicated when my dogs were my only children. I had mine late and take pity on anyone who thought they couldn't be fulfilled as a human unless they had a baby. Or didn't know what they wanted to do with their life, so they had a baby. Or the baby of any woman who defiantly declares what she does for a living as 'I'm a mother!'
