Ten Worst Excuses Not to Spay/Neuter Your Dog

1. Just one litter and then we'll have Daisy spayed.
Studies show that virtually the entire pet overpopulation issue stems
from the "just one litter" mentality.

2. My dog doesn't run loose, so he doesn't need to be fixed.
Murphy's Law says otherwise.

3. We always find homes for the puppies.
And that means that an equal number of puppies at the pound will be
euthanized.

4. I want the children to witness the miracle of birth.
Rent a video.

5. My dog is so cute and unique, there should be more of her.
The shelters and pounds are full of cute and unique dogs, most with
only a few days to live.

6. It's not natural.
There hasn't been anything "natural" about dogs since we began to
develop breeds thousands of years ago.

7. I just couldn't look my dog in the eye if I had him castrated.
Watch it, you're anthropomorphizing. Remember, real men have their
own...

8. A female dog should have at least one litter for health reasons.
Medically, factually and ethically indefensible.

9. Neutering my dog will make him fat and lazy.
Too much food and not enough exercise make a dog fat and lazy.

10. Fixing my pet will change her personality.
The main influences on a dog's personality are the kindness and care
with which she is raised.

I totally agree with spay/neuter. When I was growing up we had a male collie mix and everytime the Samoyed (hope I spelled it correctly) next door was in heat he went crazy. We felt so sorry for him but our Vet at the time said because he was 4 years old there was no point in netuering hime. I think he was wrong.

Good post. People should think the same when it comes to spaying and neutering their cats as well. If you love your cat, you will have this done, even the males, no excuses.
