Re: I normally let....
It is unfortunate. So much time, energy, money, and most importantly love is put into these dogs. I know that the intention was never to breed dogs that have problems, however when they do arrive one needs to be congnizant of the heart ache it cuases to the handlers / owners, instead of defensive and condemning. A simple offer of a replacement dog is not that hard, or even condolences.
I also believe when (about) half the litter has problems, one needs to realize that a repeat breeding might not be the right thing. But I also think this goes back to the realization of the problem....
