If she misses having little children around, there are lots of them who could use a kind grandparent-type in their lives for sure.

Dan, thanks for a really good laugh, from reading that stuff. "Holly, I know it's you, posting in your husband's name."

Poor little things. People, get a grip, there is nothing creepy about daddy-long-legs. You have been watching too many scary movies and not getting outdoors enough.

I do have a beautiful bitch named Nadine, who is her natural self. We do fine when she is in heat. We have wood floors, so if she drips a little bit it is not a big problem. She does not try to run away, just gets quiet and thoughtful for a few days.

The English are more reasonable about all this, and feel that the few days a year that they have to take extra care for their pet, is worth it. There is a product from an English company, BacToNature called Bitch Spray, which has no odor at all. You spray that on her parts and it takes away the smell that attracts male dogs.

I agree the "shelters" full of unwanted dogs is a very sad thing. But to think all dogs need their sexuality to be taken away is just wrong. After all, females only come in heat 2 or 3 times a year for a few days. It's not like people, who are sexual all the time.

I know that real puppies were not actually the focus of this question, but if you ever do get a real puppy, don't think you automatically need to get him/her "fixed" to be a responsible pet owner. Letting them get to sexual maturity, at least, is kinder than neutering them as puppies. For example, the leg bones quit growing at sexual maturity. If the dog has been neutered, the bones don't know when to stop. This is one reason a lot of dogs have hip problems, etc. later in life. And a well-cared-for animal is not a problem, either male or female. Books by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, an anthropologist who studies animals, explain this. They are fine. You don't have to cut them. They are stronger and happier intact. Aren't you?
