Anyone else find this amazingly stupid?

Testicular implants for dogs, so the dog can be neutered without "feeling like he's missing anything".

Isn't new.. been around a decent amount of time. Least it doesn't give a guy an excuse about his dog loosing his manhood and such.

Thats just weird. Has there actually been research (valid research) done to explore how dogs feel after being neutered? Do people actually not neuter their dogs because they don't like the look of neutered dog?

Um... I think the guy who invented them got a nobel prize (unless that was a hoax).

Boo doesn't mind, IMO, that he doesn't have any plums, but he sure does mind when other dogs do.... :D

Ok, under the Most frequently asked questions:

My vet said Neuticles are not ethical. Is that true?

We feel the removal of a God given body part - leaving a male pet looking unwhole after the traditional form of neutering is not only unethical but unnatural. With Neuticles it's like nothing ever changed.

UM aren't fake testies, unnatural? and they say this statement after expressing the importance of neutering..... You can't promote neutuering, and then call it unethical.....

Oh, don't get me started on unethical and neutering.

How many millions of dogs have to die every year before you start calling THAT unethical?

not you but you know, the man who wrote that.:D :mad:

omg, NOT the Nobel prize, but he did win an Ig Nobel prize! :laughing:

"The Ig Nobels, given at Harvard University by Annals of Improbable Research magazine, celebrate the humorous, creative and odd side of science."

My opinion of these is that yes, they are totally stupid. However, if it leads to someone neutering their dog when they would not if they couldn't use these, then I guess it is ok... just dumb and i have to wonder about what it says about someone who 'needs' to do this to their dog.

lol, yeah, TD, or at least similar personality types. I was thinking perhaps that only certain men would do this to their dogs...

LOL Prin, I know. I agree. I was just (and still am) really upset about how they were talking about the importance of neutering and the overflow of unwanted dogs that die each year, then turn around and call it unethical to alter a dogs "God given body part"
