I have been holding out on neutering Milton because I find it to be extremely unnatural; however, since Milt just turned seven-months-old, we were give the daycare ultimatum, so it is neuter him now, or he cannot return. Milton absolutely loves daycare (three days per week), but I feel like as his mom I am hurting him by allowing this surgery to happen. Neutering Milton honestly reminds me of a human lobotomy, and I can't bear the thought. Quite honestly, since I made the neuter appointment this morning, I have been very teary-eyed about the whole event. If we lived out in the country, I would never think to do this, but as a city dog, it is very easy to be banned from many things, simply because you have not been snipped. Have any of you ever dealt with similar feelings of guilt and regret?
