    I just don't understand why having puppies is a bad thing.

    This video made me laugh! Both of our dogs are rescues, but ALL dogs rescued in New Orleans are spayed and neutered BEFORE they are adopted out. Good luck.

    Your explanation of why you made your choice, was on point. It's not the choice I would have made, but I appreciate and respect your decision. Kudos to you and your ability to value and follow through with life lessons for your children. 🙂

    Sometimes life just throws you a curve, but, you've made the right decision for the puppies and you kids. You've turned it into a positive and a life lesson. I always enjoy these little glimpses into your family life. Your children are a joy.

    I honestly don't understand why people would think it's bad? I mean, I'm genuinely asking the question for someone to enlighten me, here. ^^
    I'm not from the US, so maybe the view on this is different in my country, so I really honestly don't get why she said people would criticize them from letting their dog have puppies?Why would that be bad to let your dog have puppies?As long as you can take good care of them and find them loving homes afterwards, that's fine, right? Can someone please enlighten me?

    I had 5 dogs in my life and 3 of them had puppies and we gave them to nice people and family members and that's great! 🙂 (one 6, one had 7 and one 9! ^^)
    Right now we're taking care of 4 kitten that a cat (who apparently doesn't have a home and who was hanging quite often in our garden since spring) ended up having under our bushes last month!^^ yay! One was sick and the other was super little because it wasn't eating properly. Now they're all fine! 🙂 I also think that's a very good experience for children to see puppies grow and to learn how to be kind to them and take care of them! 🙂

    Now I'm sorry to say this but if u claim to be animal lovers, why and how could you even think twice about taking her to the vet knowing they would kill the puppies. To me this would be common sense to just deal with it.

    I wont toss out judgement as I get judged all the time for having purebred intact dogs that I show (cardigan Welsh corgis) but also working with our breed rescue… eh.
    However I recall growing up when farm dogs were not spayed or neutered. Mutts were just that (no goldendoodle mutts etc) and people stayed out of folks business.
    Can't say yay on the puppies sorry, but thanks for keeping it real guys. Wish ya'll the best.

    Life gets busy things like this happen. I do agree about spaying IF its an unproven mix for a farm. Pure breed dogs anymore have so many issues. Mutt/mixed dogs can and will work livestock, you just have to teach them..

    I love your way of thinking. You don't just kill it because it's inconvenient. I think it is neat that you had
    puppies. People spend a lot of money on puppies because they are hard to find.

    “Dealing with the mistake” also includes spaying and neutering the puppies before they go to new homes – or else you’re not taking any responsibility, you’re just passing your problem onto someone else, for them to make more.

    You can take a female dog in that has just been mated and get them a shot so that they do not get pregnant. I believe it’s 2 shots in total. It’s not aborting formed animals, but stops the process before anyone has to kill a bunch of cute puppies.

    There’s also the other side of it, where you teach your children what happens to puppies that people don’t want anymore and the problem with letting dogs have accidental puppies. There is heartbreak – but there are 2 sides to the coin in breeding animals that are so overpopulated.

    It really is one of the most adorable accidents that happens in our lives – and much harder to fix when the kids see the incident and know what the result will be. Lol!!

    Of course, bringing "unwanted" puppies into the world when so many dogs and cats need a good home, isn't what you intended. Killing puppies in utero is about the same thing as euthanizing, so I agree with you (not that you needed me to) about that. Hope you are able to give them all good homes and have her spade as soon as is feasible so it doesn't happen again.

    I suggest you take a walk through a High Kill Shelter and look at all the results of irresponsible pet owner's actions. The majority of those sweet faces behind the bars got there under exactly the same circumstances. The majority of them will be DEAD within a few days. It's not being "moralistic" to be a responsible pet owner and to care about the death or suffering of our fellow residents on the planet. Somehow, I knew this would be the outcome of you getting these dogs. I suppose they're not on Heartworm prevention either, are they? I've VERY disappointed in you two.

    That was awesome! If I were near home I would have definitely offered to give one or two of them a home. Still deployed and missing my family but as usual you give me the chance to look at home. Can't wait until I retire and move back to the mountains again. You have a wonderful family and a beautiful life. Thanks again for sharing.

    I just wanted to giggle when I heard the story! I get it! They are the “choose life” puppies and a beautiful beautiful living example of values! What exact curriculum is the signs-song- etc of the lesson you were doing? I thought it would be a good way for my kiddos to learn history

    Puppies happen. I had dual registered Aussies for years. You are not supposed to breed 'Merles' together. But my male was a Houdini. I/(she) had 2 litters of 6 that weren't 'supposed' to happen….Sigh.

    Your reasoning is all wrong. Mom & dad, the adults, took no responsibility in getting the dog spayed in time when they knew they didn't want puppies, but thank goodness, the kids now get a lesson in responsibility. Maybe the kids will also learn that mom & dad are rather loose when it comes to actually practicing responsibility. Now mom & dad have the added responsibility of caring for these animals until they can farm them out to the neighbors. Yes, puppies are cute, but trading one easy responsibility for a more complicated one isn't. Thumbs down!

    I personally don't believe in killing animals, just to kill so aborting the litter would have bothered me. Yes we have to set an example!please for the children that life is valuable. They will learn a lot from having the puppies. Enjoy them. Loved the clip of the classroom .

    Honestly, having Puppies is amazing. You learn so much about their development along the way. You witness how their eyes and ears open, how they start waddling around, how they interact and play together, how their bodies develop when they grow. Kids can learn to be really soft and gentle, handling the puppies, learn to be patient when they teach them basic obedience and lots more. There are many learning opportunities that can emerge from having puppies. Enjoy the time with them. They are so precious.
