I thought this poem provides a little insight into the life of a breeder.....it's worth a read

 The Breeder


I love my little puppy

She makes my House a home.

She is my sweetest little friend; I never feel alone.

She makes me smile;She makes me laugh;

She fills my heart with love.

Did some person breed her, or did she just fall from  above?

I've never been a breeder, never seen life through their eyes;

I hold my little puppy and just sit and criticize.

I've never known their  anguish; I've never felt their pain,

The caring of their charges, through snow and wind and rain.

I've never waited the whole night through for babies to be born,

the stress and trepidation when their still not here by morn.

The weight of responsibilty for this body in my hands,

darling little baby,who  weighs but sixty grams

Should you do that instead of this...or maybe that was wrong?

Alone you fight and hope and pray,he'll grow up proud and strong.

You pray he'll live to bring great joy to someone else's home

You know it's all just up to; you'll fight this fight alone.

Formula, bottles, heating pads, you've got to get this right,

Two hour feedings for this guy, throughout the day and night.

Within your heart you dread that you will surely loose this fight.

Day one: he's in there fighting, you say a silent prayer.
Day two and three, he's doing well, with lots of love and care.

Day four and five...he's still alive; your hopes soar to the heavens.

Day six he slips away again, dies in your hands day seven.

You take this littel angel, and you bury him alone.

With aching heart and burning tears, and an exhausted groan.

You ask yourself, "Why do this?...Why suffer through this pain?"

Yet watch the joy your puppies bring, and everything's explained.

So when  you think of breeders and you label them with "Greed".

think of all the things that they endure to fill another's need.

For when you buy your puppy, with your precious dollars part.

You only pay with money...while they pay with all their heart.
