In Thursday night class a few weeks ago we were discussing the sad state of affairs concerning the future of dogs. Depending on where you look for statistics 74-76% of all dogs in America are spayed/neutered. The viable breeding population that is left after that 74% is not a large enough gene pool to continue to meet the demand for dogs we have currently.
With this in mind we were all asked to find 5 intact dogs and 5 intact bitches that did not include our classmates, or any of the students at Applewoods.
Since none of us have succeeded so far so I am passing it on to you.
-Find 5 intact dogs and 5 intact bitches that do not include your own dogs (stanger's dogs).
-Take a picture of the dogs, and when you have found 10 dogs post the list of dogs on your blog with their pictures
-Send me an email at biscotti702ATyahooDOTcom with the link to your post.
The first person to find 10 will recieve a prize, that I have not decided on yet. :p
The next 5 after that will recieve a smaller prize.
I will pick the prizes and post them later this week.
GOOD LUCK! Happy Hunting!
EDITED TO ADD LINKS TO STATISTICS:
"In fact, 28 percent of owned dogs and 16 percent of owned cats are not spayed or neutered, according to the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association."
