I don't like them. At all. I am not a fan.

They are 100% cosmetic and unnecessary.  Why cause pain to an animal for no other reason than it being more aesthetically pleasing to you?

This. Exactly this.

It's barbaric. I heard the AKC requires them for shows, though. I'd never get a dog with cropped ears or docked tails. One of my neighbors just got a spaniel with a cropped tail, though. I feel bad for the poor little thing.

Don't like them and I would never do that to a puppy/dog.

Totally against both.

Personally, I'm not against them, but I don't see the point. I wouldn't do it to my puppy.
Now, what they do to poodles in dog shows is unforgivable! :)

 If I paid money for a certain  pure breed whose standard was to have a docked tail and ears I would do it.
