    I was worried about getting Gus fixed too. But he was starting to get bullied a bit at the dog park... my vet said it is b/c other males are smelling the testosterone and they need to dominate him. which was not good because cavs are such lovers. I have to say, three weeks later, Gus is no different but he is right back to having fun with the other dogs and they aren't bothering him.

    Molly and Charlies mom: Is Molly fixed? If not then I would DEFINITELY get Charlie fixed. The surgery doesn't seem to bother them that much, Cody was ropping and playing a few hours after he came home. The main reason I got Cody fixed is because I didn't want him going nuts when there was a female in heat in the neighborhood. This can be a big issue because he could potentially run away. Not to mention the leg lifting an humping of beds, people and other dogs.
    Wesley also got beat up at the dog park by another un-nuetered male and that about made my decision for me. That was the scariest day in my life when a pit bull mix had Welsey by the neck. I cry just thinking about it. His apointment is set for November 22nd.
    I love my Wesley, Cody, Zoey & Stewie

    That's exactly why my Charlie is at the Vet's getting done, at this very moment. Of course, all day he's all that's been on my mind here at work, concerned about his recovery. Tonight we get to pick him up at the Vet's, and I just hope he won't be in much pain

    He will do great. Cody napped for most of the evening the first night and you could just tell that he wanted to play with Wesley so bad but he just couldn't. The next day though they were back to barrel rolling each other through the dirt in the back yard (with me freaking out on the porch that his stitches were going to get pulled or filled with dirt). He is all fine though and I am sure Charlie will be the same way.

    Thanks, I'm sure he will be fine. He's getting a "3 in 1" with getting neutered, an umbilical hernia fixed, and baby teeth pulled, all at once. I think he's going to be one grumpy little puppy once we get him home.

    Christine, I don't have my Bentley neutered either, he is 16 months old. I guess I haven't gotten him neutered mainly due to fear of complications.....now that being said, I do realize that complications are very, very rare, and almost never ever happen, I am just sort of in "worry mode" right now. Another reason I didn't get him neutered is he doesn't leg lift and doesn't hump anything, and he never goes off leash and he doesn't go to a dog park (right now the dog park here has too many large aggressive dogs). Any time he is outside he is always with me only, and always on a leash. I do, however, worry about things like a higher incidence of testicular cancer in un-neutered dogs. I'm not against neutering, in fact ALL of my previous male dogs have been neutered (and one did have some complications, altho minor), and I really do believe that you should neuter. But, like I said, I am just a bit overwhelmed right now due to some personal losses in my life (my father passed away a year ago, my mother 6 years ago, and my brother-in-law just this past Spring), so I am just feeling unsure of things right now and not wanting to jump into any big changes (neutering feels like a big change right now). Not sure if that made any sense?! LOL!

    That photo with the onesie on is so adorable!! Glad he is doing so well!!

    Duh.....when I said that I really believe that you should neuter, that didn't come out right.....what I should have said was... I do agree about neutering, especially for health reasons. But, I do think that if you choose to not neuter, and are careful, that is OK too. Not sure if I will neuter Bentley, thinking maybe not.
