Must be a real caring owner to have the conversation with his dog: "Tomorrow, we're going to have your tail cut off. It'll hurt and serve no purpose in your life with us, but you'll look SO fine with a stump . . . really, you'll look kewl in a pathetic way."

There doesn't seem to be any way I can imagine to tell if a pup's daddy had been mutilated or not - isn't it the bloodline you're concerned about? I'd think a purebred who's had a leg amputated is still a purebred, but then I really like dogs . . . .


PS: It's the practice I'm upset with, Scott, not your explanation.
