My Aust Silky got pregnant and I only discover it after a month. the father is also a Aust Silky, both with microchip and registered. Now my vet told me, that I cant get certs and registered microchips for the 4 babies becos of the new ruling. Can anyone tell me what to do? There is no new ruling on getting MKA cert. The ruling is still the same many years ago. You still can get a cert just go to MKA office and sign the form 1 (mating cert) and state the mating date within 28 days in the form. If the mating date taken over 28days you still not yet submit the form 1 to MKA, they will not accept your late submissions. Understand? Fast fast go to MKA office tomorrow and do it ASAP!!! Things required by MKA when submitting the form 1 (Mating cert) 1. Photocopy Male dog pedigree 2. You are the current female dog owner If you still need further assistant about register your dog. Please feel free to email me at chrisoys @ y.a.h.o.o.com
Also, I dont think I can keep all four babies. I hv friends who are asking me if I plan to give them away. I dont need to make money out of my babies, but I really wouldnt give them away. I am happy to give one to my aunt who loves dogs. So what do I say and how shd i tell my friends without offending them? My vet suggested I put a high price tag on them as since this is the only one time my Silky is going to have babies. Why put the high price tag, your Silky have no cert? Better sell it cheap and find them a good home! Most important thing you must think are the potential owners must be ready to take care the puppy. If you feel they are not ready for the puppy better look for others that can. Yes, they did pay you money for the puppy but this is your responsible to screen thru the potential owner and tell them the commitment they need to care for a puppy. Atleast the potential dog owner are well inform about the commitment before purchase the puppy from you. Good Luck Hope this help
thank you..... Hi Chrisong, Just wondering...are you from MKA? U seem to be very knowledgable about MKA rules, what form to use etc And then when I look around the forum, you seem to be the one promoting all of MKA's all breed championship shows. You even know the number. Even I don't know whether its the 245th show or the 789th show. Wow. Don't get defensive, I'm just curious.
