Yeah unfortunately we have to. When we first brought her home she got the common kennel cough but 7 months later she's still got issues.

They think she a weak upper respiratory system and we have to do routine check ups to make sure it doesn't get too bad.

She's the only fat cat we have ever had. All of the other ones are always super lean. She goes along well with our 165 pound tank of a Rottweiler.

165 pounds of pure German dog to go along with my pure German car. The second picture is him in my old 528i. (He wasn't allowed in, he just managed to get in while I was cleaning It out)

He's probably the weirdest dog in the world. He understands both English and Russian and growls when he is happy haha.

Doug is going to be a father soon, and I'm his pimp. I met a guy at the dog park that wants to breed his dog. It's about time he earned his keep

So all you have to do to breed the dog is meet some dude at a dog park? If so, I'm pimping Finn out ASAP.

Negative, balls are still firmly attached. It was the other Finn who's balls were removed.

We're waiting until he's a year old before doing it at the recommendation of the vet. I guess it helps them develop muscle and joints better or something. Doesn't matter anyway because he doesn't show a lot of the pre-neuter tendencies that a lot of other dogs show.

I don't know why vets are just now coming around to the idea that removing organs responsible for hormone development might be a bad idea, seems like common sense to me. I'm leaning toward a vasectomy, if anything, once he's older.

The most notable results from this study include a doubled risk of hip dysplasia among males neutered before 12 months of age and the increased risk of mast cell tumors and hemangiosarcoma in dogs neutered after 12 months. Previous studies reported only a 17% increase in risk of hip dysplasia in neutered dogs and this is the first study to report an increased risk of cancer in dogs neutered late.

Of the five diseases measured, the study reported that:

* There were no cases of cranial cruciate ligament rupture diagnosed in intact males or females, but in early-neutered males and females the occurrences were 5% and 8%, respectively
* Almost 10% of early-neutered males were diagnosed with lymphosarcoma, 3 times more than intact males
* The percentage of hemangiosarcoma cases in late-neutered females (about 8%) was 4 times more than intact and early-neutered females
* There were no cases of mast cell timor in intact females, but the occurrence was nearly 6% in late-neutered females
* Of early-neutered males, 10% were diagnosed with hip dysplasia, double the occurrence in intact males.

^ I agree but at 12 months of age the hormone production is a lot lower than before so that's why it's a good time to do it. We are contracted to neuter him per agreement with the breeder otherwise we'd have to pay a fee to "continue the bloodline" or some crap like that. It was all BS but we were going to neuter anyway so it didn't matter.

That kind of contract is big with labradoodles too as they aren't recognized by the AKC yet and want to maintain standards to get recognized.

It's huge with the more popular breeds (labs, goldens, german shepherds, other gun/family dogs, etc) too. They don't want people to just randomly breed anything and everything and increase genetic issues within the breed.

Finn turned one yesterday. Can't believe it has almost been a year since we got him...

Also, he was super pissed that the wife made him wear this hat.
