Zoey's Teeth

:b rushteeth:
Took Zoey in for her last set of shots today and our vet look at her teeth. Her under-bite is correcting it self He also said if we pull the bottom baby teeth it could correct her bite to be perfect. A sizer us bite? She has already lost a couple bottom teeth so that may be why it is getting better. And the jaw can grow at different rates.
This is really good news for me because we want to show her.

And I could tattoo Sugarbaby's eye rims but it wouldn't change her genetics, which is what showing is about. Showing is about the most genetically correct dog, not the one who has been "adjusted" to be correct.

Would you really put your dog through the pain of having her teeth pulled to make her "show-able"?

Maybe its just me, but showing in conformation doesn't look that fun to me. You sit around just to run your dog around in a circle once or twice. It seems more like a means to an end which is getting feedback about a dog's makeup for breeding purposes..especially when you can do rally or agility or even training your dog to be a therapy dog it is just very passive in comparison when you take breeding out of the equation.

Not just in regards to you Suzi, but I have heard of people using a SHarpie to color in their dog's noses, etc. Seems like an awful lot of trouble to go to, to fit a square peg into a round hole. I don't feel Lily is show quality (though adorable) nor would I ever breed her so I am not trying to be superior.

Anyone who shows is welcome to chime in, I hope I'm not being offensive..

Lily My Love, You are not being offensive. Showing is highly competitive!!!! And it can be mean, it just is not for everyone. Many of the people I train with have to show their dogs and bring them to championship, because it is in their contract. This is how they were able to get the dog of their dreams to do Obedience/agility and many of them hate it and many do not even plan to breed. Showing is not always glamorous, there are many thank heavens who do like it and they have brought us some beautiful dogs to love and enjoy.

Excuse me but extracting teeth is not the same. I would love to here that having teeth pulled is hiding a genetic flaw. Where do you get your information from?

I have no idea if I will love showing or not. At least my contract is not forcing me into that. I am doing it because this forum has taught me that is what I have to do in order to be a breeder. It was a fluke that I even ran across this forum. I am just trying to do what is right. I find it funny that I keep getting put down around every corner.

Is pulling baby teeth in question here?? I guess I don't understand what the problem is with that.

I thought pulling baby teeth is routine in puppies? Maggie had a couple pulled when she was spayed. Didn't fix her underbite unfortunately. That's great news Suzi.
