    ......Just booked Koda in for 'the snip'!

    Had to wait until OH had taken him for a walk!

    He will be 6 months old (I've seen all sorts of advice on ages posted, its what our vet recommends......and he's started humping his bed!)

    I feel guilty now! :eek:

    I wouldn't feel guilty (though I understand and sympathise).

    Anthromorphising to a shameful degree but I have repeatedly taken an impression that they are glad to be relieved of the constant nagging pressure to procreate.

    Yep, he won't miss what he's never had. And he'll be healthier for it, too. Just give him lots of loving when he gets home, and he'll never guess it was your idea!

    I tend to wonder whether to get mine done but then think to myself... As long as he doesnt turn nasty i will let him have his knackers but if he mis behaves then off they go i am also scared that if his do go his personality goes too coz atm its lovely

    He'll be fine, they recovery very quickly and don't tend to notice anything is missing :)
    Why is it that men are always against getting dogs castrated ?
    He's still a boy, balls or not.
