if the breeder was told by someone who also had gliders for many, many years that it was okay to do this,and as we know sometimes things don't happen over night. But now that the breeder is eductaed about it.. now what?? they are already slamed on the glider board. and they haven't a chance of proving themselves worthy of change. So what good is education.. If not given a chance to be utilized? It was said that Heather had a chance to educate herself as to know what to look for, she gets a second chance.. but now what of the breeder? I too advised her not to get another from them, however; That was before I talked with them. It would have been different if they got very defensive, and claimed they know what to do. But the fact is too many people are breeding them, WITHOUT all the info they need to ensure happy healthy pets. Too many people rush in and buy a PAIR to breed, only to not have the knowledge or the resources as to the newest updates.. These are sad facts.. Sure all problems would be solved if EVERYONE researched throughout the lives of their glider. Again, it doesn't happen.. I am not saying either side is totally fault free, nor am I saying that they are totally at fault. What I am saying, is with education, both sides would have known what to watch for...
