You are going to do what? that’s right, we have decided to castrate Monti surgically. It´s the best thing for him, he has a huge sexual drive and he is never going to mate so it´s the best thing for him. I don’t think it´s fun to do this but he gets so worked up and can’t sleep or eat when the females in our street is in heat. We will do the surgery next year because he still has the chemical castration at least three months time. My boyfriend was a little against it at first (being a boy and all) but, It didn’t take him long to figure out it´s the best for him.
In my country (Norway) many people are against castration because they see it as a form of mutilation. I think it´s wrong to let a dog who is never going to mate get so bothered by his urges that he can’t function right. If the dog is fine with it then no need to do anything but, I have heard about owners who has dogs who don’t sleep and just tries to run away because of females in heat. I can only imagine all the smells and the hormones who go crazy, poor guys. I am doing what is best for my dog and that is the only thing that matters.
The walking training is going great, he responds with some protesting but he comes to me when I have a snack for him. Every time he pulls I stop and he neds to come back to me before we can go anywhere. I Don’t think he likes it but I Don’t like walking a dog who goes crazy and almost pulls me over. Winter is comming and ice and snow is not a great thing to walk on with a dog who pulls. I use spikes under my shoes but, fall sometimes. I Don’t care if he walks infront of me, I have never expected him to walk heal but, just go and sniff as he wants without tearing off mommy’s arms. I am happy with the resaults, I think my boy is doing very great.
I almost forgot, Monti has been sick the past few days and yesterday I found out why, he vomited several times and to my suprice he had ate a sock. He always has something in his mouth, Thats why we need to use the crate when we are not home. I hope he dont eat any more socks in the future 😛
There are only two ways Monti is, on or off. From sleepy to hyper playfull.
Today we went for a walk, my mom tried to stop me from acting crazy around the other dogs and I am improving, I bark and growl a little but she snaps me out of it. The rest of the day has been about cleaning, It´s so boring to be a dog when mom needs to clean, so I just followed her everywhere until she paid attention to me. The rest of the day we have been watching Bob´s burgers and now it´s time for my nap. Also, we need a new chair, this one was bought used so it has done it´s job.
