@Link_Hiei: You're thinking about neutering in the wrong way. There are literally hundreds of animals being put down in my county alone every week because there`s no room in the pound because pet overpopulation is such a problem. Plus, it is a lot healthier for the animals to be altered, it decreases the risk of most cancers and infections, and you don`t risk bringing dozens of puppies into the world that will be put down when they aren`t adopted.

@Link_Heil "I agree with you cobra. I would hate to get neutered just because I don't want kids (I don`t) so I wouldn`t do it to my pet."
that`s all fine and good that you would hate to get neutered cuz you don`t want kids. but am i right in assuming you have the presence of mind to wear a rubber? or assure that some other form of birth control is being utilized?
my dog`s lack of thumbs made condoms a non-option so i had him neutered. bingo-bango, problem solved.

only $65? that's a real deal. we`ve been quoted $150 or $185 if we want to give her antibiotics and pain meds. WTF? if i had abdominal surgery i would sure want both!

"I just dont see us as being above other animals as some people do"
It's not about being above the animals. I`m all for neutering. There are so many unwanted dogs and cats sitting in homes or being put down, its irresponsible to allow more to be rbought into the world.
Granted, it depends on the situation. If you live in a place where you have full control of your dog and don`t encounter dogs in every day life then fine, let your dog have its balls, but if its likely to start shaggin bitches it encounters then its not fair on the puppys.
