I'm very irritated at the moment about this situation, so I apologize in advance for my venom... :twisted:

Three times now I have run into a neighbor who has a cute little Blenheim female named Molly. Molly is cute but not what I would consider top-notch breeding quality. She has very buggy eyes and she has a bad habit of chewing the long hair off her ears and tail. I wonder what kind of food and entertainment she's getting...

Anyway...the owner says she wants to breed her and is looking for a stud. I told her Chester is neutered. We then talked about Chester and I told her which breeder he came from. Molly's owners then said "we looked at that breeder but she wanted too much $$ for her puppies, so we ended up getting Molly from another breeder out West and even with the airfair included, Molly cost less than your Chester did." I bit my tongue and said nothing for fear of being harsh...

I saw Molly again this past weekend and the owners yet again mentioned that they are looking to breed her. They talked AGAIN about how much they saved by buying Molly from the out-West breeder. I am very concerned that these people are incompetent idiots and should not be breeding Molly, but what can I do? What can anyone do? The next time I see these folks I'm going to ask them if they have had her tested for MVD and all the other health issues. If they say no or have never heard of the various health issues I will be very tempted to be brutally honest and tell them they should not be breeding her and to leave the breeding to the pros.

Don't get me wrong...Molly is a very sweet girl and a wonderful pet. I have no idea how they care for her or what food they feed her, but the fact that she's chewing her ear and tail hair off seems to be to be some sign that she has a skin issue or she's just plain bored and doesn't have enough to do. I am just not impressed with her owners at this point and it breaks my heart to think that they are breeding her just to make back the money they spent on her.

Am I being a b**ch about this whole deal or is my anger and frustration justified? Do any of you have any suggestions for how I can go about talking with these people?
