Me. You band them . You have to make sure you have both testicles and slip a band around them. I know it sounds bad but you cannot have a pasture full of rams breeding with their Moms. affraid Plus a ram CAN become aggressive. So it is best for all concerned . My husband and son pretend to run away when I get the bander out.

That's all it is? Bands? For some reason I thought things were "cut" pale

Cool that that is all it is! Sounds easy. Yes, it is definitely something that needs to be done under the circumstances.

That reminds me of a joke.

A woman comes into a vet's office with an obviously pregnant cat.

"Doctor, I don't know what's wrong with Fluffy. She just keeps getting fatter and fatter."

The doctor examines Fluffy and tells the woman the cat is going to have kittens.

"Kittens? That's impossible. She never leaves the house."

"Do you have any male cats around?"

"Well, yes, I have one but it couldn't be him".

"Is he neutered?"

"No, he's not neutered."

"Well?"

"But, Doctor, he's her brother!"

I took Halle for her ultrasound today and there are no puppies. Crying or Very sad I am very sad, I REALLY wanted the pups and they were all already sold. To make it triple sad the male I bred her with who was a National Champion has since died. I have been crying all afternoon . I so wanted those puppies. I know it must seem silly but I am very upset.

How old was he? That is really tragic and sounds like it was a shock to everyone.

Too bad they did'nt freeze some of his sperm...they do that with top stallions for breeding purposes.

Sad news to report. My stepmom's 14 year old standard poodle Sandy went out two weeks ago and hasn't returned. He had a collar with tags that had his name, phone number and address on it and everyone around here knew him. We fear he has gone to the standard poodle graveyard.

Goodbye, Sandy. We'll miss the way you ate an entire pie and then washed it down with a couple of caramel apples. We'll miss the way you could scarf down foot long subs in one gulp. The way you stole all the Christmas cookies one year. The way we had to hide candy because if you smelled it and it was anywhere you could get it, you'd eat the entire bag. We'll miss the way you were such a trouper about pills - down the hatch in one swallow, none of this hiding it in the mashed potatoes or forcing down the throat for you. We'll miss the way you went out hunting for moles and other varmints every morning. We'll miss the way you let the smaller dogs (Pooh the toy poodle and Lily the rat terrier) stick their entire heads in your mouth. We'll miss your goofy charm most of all.

Oh Badger, I am so sorry Sad Sandy sounded like a real gem! Don't give up hope. Maybe by some miracle he'll be returned. If not, sounds like he was sure loved and had an awesome life!

Hugs to you my friend.

Thanks, firecracker. Standard poodles are great dogs.

For all his goofiness, he was a good watchdog which was really the main reason Carol and my dad got him. When they moved out here from Maryland, they bought a house on quite a bit of land - it used to be a farm. Anyway, my dad thought they needed a large dog as a guard and since my stepmom wasn't crazy about the idea of dog hair all over her house, a standard poodle which does not shed, was the best solution. Sandy was a big dog - around 100 pounds in his prime and as tall as me when he stood on his hind legs (I'm 5 feet tall). He never attacked a person - he was content mainly to bark and to pee on the shoes of men he didn't like -- but I have no doubt he could have put a serious hurt on someone if he had a mind to.
