This is Jack.
Jack is not our dog. He showed up a couple months ago and has been around 95% of the time since then.
We call him Jack because the number on his tag sent us to the pet shelter. They told us his name and that he had been adopted by someone who said she "would find him a good home." When we call her number she never picks up. Sketchy.
So anyway, we don't mind having him around. He is very gentle with Miss C. Clyde the cat had to teach him a lesson at first but now they happily coexist and he and our dog Missy are bestest friends fur-ever.
The problem is, Jack still has...um...he...um...he is still endowed with the equipment required to continue the species.
|"Well! Just tell the WORLD about it!"|
This is the dilemma: I am of the persuasion that only purebred dogs worth hundreds of dollars contained in an inescapable fence should be allowed that luxury. All others should be chop-chopped.
I know this is discriminating against your ethnicity and socioeconomic status, but this comes from a tragic past experience when a hormone-crazed dog the size of a Buick busted through my front door and got my (very expensive soon-to-be bred to an even more expensive) golden Labrador Retriever resulting in 13 Buick-size puppies I had to feed and care for through the dead of winter then give away to a no-kill shelter because no one wanted a Buick-size puppy in the dead of winter.
|"Oh wow. That's ruff."|
Thanks, Jack. I knew you'd understand.
|"The same thing happened to my mama."|
Yeah, I kinda figured as much.
So what do I do?
Should I tie a note to his collar saying, "If this is your dog please call me, I'm going to get him chopped?"
|"Ow, ow, ow!"|
Should I go ahead and get it done and let them find the stitches?
