Don't Fix Him

Somehow, for years, dogs have managed to get by, and all other animals for that matter, without getting fixed. Why now, just because humans came along, should dogs bow down to us? Fight the power!

Yeah man. WTF? Like if the government started "fixing" all of us who aren't so much contributing to the GNP but are still capable of being lovable and cuddly and drooling on stuff, that would **** me off. So to speak.

'Somehow, for years, dogs have managed to get by...'

Hmmm.... last time I checked, dogs as we know them were domesticated and bred by humans, not some wild animal.

Anyways, anybody that's ever lived in a community with a wild/stray dog problem knows the value of neutering...

I'd have to say they aren't getting by at all; think of all the animals that are euthanized every year because somebody wanted to "fight the man" by leaving their pet intact. Few modern dogs can make it without humans, and as such we have a responsibility to the whole species to try and keep unwanted offspring off the streets and out of the pounds.

We didn't used to need to fix dogs. The lion (she prefers to be called a panther) loves dogs, and she prefers to eat 80 lb ones. In the old days there were only about 75 dogs in the entire county, although they bred like, like, like... dogs.

Now we shoot lions, and they've become quite shy. And the dogs are quite numerous, and they poop everywhere. It stinks.

actually, acheological evidence suggests that dogs pushed their way into human camps looking for food scraps, protection and companionship. sure, we domesticated them, but they made first contact.

I agree with neutering wholeheartedly, but do wish they all had at least one chance to get bizzay before bidding adieu to their gear.

I am such a pet lover - I have a dog & cat (both fixed) & I think it it TOTALLY IRRESPONSIBLE not to fix your pet (with a few exceptions of course). There are way too many homeless doggies & kitties out there - it is really sad. & If you let them "get some" first that's even worse b/c they will remember that the rest of their lives. Best just to do it as early as is safe & be done with it.

Besides, if you don't fix him.. He could "Spray" up your furniture with his male scents to mark his terrority. Usually, that scent is impossible to get rid of. Different from Pee.

RE: Don't Fix Him

if we really want to talk about our responsibility to pets, and dogs in particular, breeding should then be outlawed and all pets should be spayed/nutered until we have taken care of the awful puppy mill/overcrowded shelter/euthanizing 4 million pets a year problem. want a pet? go to the pound. you can get puppies there, just as good as bred ones (but without the genetic defects ie hip dysplasia, retinal deterioration, etc). ones that desperately need homes. breeding is outdated, and fixing your pet is a necessity. a female dog is 75 percent less likely to get mammary or uterine cancer if she is spayed before the first time she goes into heat. the dog population is an important topic but it's not the only topic when considering spaying/nutering.

Also in the wild, they were animals such as wolves.. and they had a dominance hierarchy where only the alpha male and female were allowed to reproduce. Hense the better, stronger genes continued on.
