Yet another unplanned Canine mating resulting in nothing more than a litter of unwanted mongrel pups. Four did not survive and the other seven were rehomed by a Dog Rescue Centre.

Makes me want to weep - there are so many unwanted pups around, in all countries. Why, oh why can people either not keep their dogs separated when the female is in season, or get one or the other (preferably both) "done"? The little welfare group we work for is currently feeding over 100 dogs & pups which are mainly the result of "illicit"liaisons and which people can't afford to keep. Some are just left to fend for themselves (or not), some put in plastic bags in the dustbin; the lucky ones are in cardboard boxes outside supermarkets where people will find them. It is being naive to the point of total stupidity to think that two adult dogs won't mate if they possibly can - nature will overcome immense obstacles to sent the genetic material into a new generation.

When the vets from a German charity come here to perform free sterilisations on "street" animals, they get through over 120 animals in 3 days, usually - sparing a huge amount of suffering, but in this time of economic crisis the need for help is enormous and the volunteers are at the sharp end often having to have newborn pups put down, as there are not the resources (in money or people) to deal with them.

Sorry, rant over!
