I didn't have any appropriate pictures for our discussion today. My new mate Kenzo is just really young. He has a lot of things ahead of him. He has been listening to some scary stories about going to the vet. I call going to the vet a Very Educational Trip. It teaches me that there are some mean scary people out there that do some sick and disgusting things to animals. As I said to Kenzo, those people will just grab your tail and stick a big cold wet thing... You would never believe where they stick in, and they don't even warn you by sniffing there first. Awful. Just awful.
They also do evil surgical experiments on you at that Vet place. I once went in feeling, and looking just fine, and came out with no thumbs, a bucket on my head, and my 'boys' were gone.
That was a very bad time, let me tell you. Some people call it "being FIXED", my boys were just fine, they needed no fixing at all. I took real good care of them, believe me. It would be much better to just tell everyone that you are being de-sexed. I didn't understand any of this stuff until my dad took me for a walk and explained everything. Once I understood that there would not be any girl dogs begging ME to pay attention to THEM instead of them wanting to pay attention to ME, it all made sense. Now when I see my girlfriend dogs, they are grrrreat to me. The bring toys to me and share food with me (like they should) instead of demanding that I do things for them. My life is much better now, I don't miss the boys at all.
Well, now that I have grown up, and graduated from my school, I know how important those things really are. As part of my job (if I get it) as Secretary of Animal Care and Protection, I am going to PROMOTE that kind of thing for all animals. Preventive shots, and pills, and surgery are not always fun at the moment, but they are worth it for a good life.
