Can't we be politically correct with our dogs?
I had to buy wormer for our dog, Daisy. I had never used this type of wormer so I had to read the directions. Everything was going fine until I read, "Give to lactating or nursing bitches 2-3 weeks after whelping." Okay. I know that's the proper term. I really do. But, as a former lactating bitch it's difficult not to take offense to such a term. I mean really. It's just rude...especially to the poor dog. Dogs are never bitchy. They are loving, faithful, and obedient. The other lactating bitches? What with bleeding nipples, swollen boobs, 24 hour feedings, waking every 2-3 hours, night sweats, hormones running amok, changing poopy diaper after poopy diaper, of course we are bitchy! Let's let dogs be dogs and leave them alone. No more name calling. Thank you.
