From the Diary: So many litters - litter after litter after litter ...

So here we go again, another litter from the beautiful mother dog they were so crazy about. But there was a litter every time she was in heat, and that was too much.  But they just let it happen, as if that was logical and normal. Most Spanish people shudder when you mention spaying or sterilizing, and if you try to explain it you must use beautiful words or you get abuse.

Mama is a Border Collie, dad is probably a Perro de Agua, they told us. So she had her umpteenth litter and the puppies, they have to go, quickly. They are handed out to friends and acquaintances, who also do not castrate one more, and so in the foreseeable future there will be more puppies and so on it goes on and on ...

Fiorella, Flora, Fenix and Filia are now safe, and candidates for a better future than their mama had.
