You don't know me from adam Goldfields, but you have completely thrown this topic off course, that to me is the terrible shame.
I neither find the word "bitch" a swear word or derogatory, it is far more simple than that, "I do not like referring to a female dog as a bitch".
I have no intentions of discussing "these" issues further......Anything constructive that you might have to say on the plight of these poor dogs is more than welcome.
