Should peoples fix their puppies? The great debate

I was out on a long walkies with my person last week and I stopped to sniff a nice lady person near us.

The lady person said she had boy dogs which was prolly what I was smelling. So my person said that I wasn’t ‘fixed’ yet and so was super interested in the smell of boy dogs, it’s just my primal instincts or something).

It turns out that this nice lady person had quite a lot to say on the subject of fixing us doggies.

She has two boys and one girl doggy and she regrets the day she had her girl doggy fixed because her personality changed.

My person warned me about writing this post because fixing is a controversial subject and lots of peoples get hot and bothered about what’s right and wrong.

I don’t give a monkey’s myself.

I’m a dog. What the heck do I know.

But my person said it’s a very important topic and that we should find out how other peoples have done when they got their doggies fixed.

This nice lady person that I sniffed said it was up to persons to be sensible with unfixed doggies. My person agrees about that. She also says that it can be a bit yucky if you don’t do it but that it’s also a little unnatural.

I don’t plan on being a mummy. I’m too selfish. I like all the attention on ME.

I’d like to know your opinion and experience with all this fixing stuff.

How old were you when you got fixed and did your persons notice any changes in you afterwards?

At the end of the day I’m prolly gonna get fixed – my man person wasn’t a bit happy when my person said we should think about it some more.

Please post your comments so I can read about what it’s gonna be like.

  3. Hi There,
    found your blog through the 31 day blog challenge. Cute blog, keep up the good work! (By the way, my dog loves to eat socks as well!)

    As for spaying, we’ve had both our female dogs spayed, with no behavioral changes resulting.

    Be aware, there’s a much greater risk for health problems such as uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, infections, and other problems when dogs aren’t spayed.

    In fact, my best friend’s dog just had to have a costly operation to remove an infected uterus because she was never spayed. Since she’s an older dog (over 10) doing the surgery was much more risky than it would have been to just spay her a decade ago. Luckily, the dog is doing fine now, but had to endure quite a bit of pain until they figured out what the problem was.

    Also, if you have no intention of breeding, I see no reason not to spay. There are way too many unwanted pets right now. Female dogs in heat attract male dogs, and accidents do happen.

    Talk to your vet if you have questions, she/he should be able to tell you the benefits and advantages (and disadvantages) to spaying.

    cheers,

  7. I was talking to someone at work today who said that as dogs age their hormones (if not spayed) become increasingly harder to deal with. Dogs will fight to get out of the house to mate and may also be in pain at times.
