Naturally good nuts. That’s good, because we wouldn’t want artificial nuts.
Unless you’re the owner of a neutered male dog, and you take his loss of sexual potency way too personally. There are, believe it or not, artificial nuts for neutered dogs.
I’ve never owned a male dog. I’m of the opinion that female dogs generally are smarter, live longer and have fewer overall health problems- even though spaying a female is a lot more expensive and involved than neutering a male. I have encountered more than a few male dogs that would make me hesitate to consider a male dog, but in fairness I’ve also encountered a few that I really liked. I find it really hard to dislike any dog, with the exception of my cousins’ psycho Chihuahua, Andy- but Andy’s been dead for nearly 40 years. If anything, poor Andy was an argument against incessant inbreeding.
You didn’t need them anyway.
I may end up with a male dog someday, but I wouldn’t consider having an intact male, even though neutering doesn’t guarantee placid behavior. Uno, the one-brown, one-blue-eyed, twisted little Shih-Tsu, who used to belong to my mother-in-law, positively tormented poor Isabel (who was a five pound, spayed, elderly, black cat) by chasing her all over the house and attempting to hump her constantly. He was neutered, but that didn’t seem to matter to Uno and his Red Rocket. I was glad when we found that guy a good permanent home- away from Isabel. He was a sweet dog, but humping the cat (aside from being counterproductive) is just plain creepy.
I’ve had three male cats, and they weren’t at all bothered about being nutless. Other than reduced longevity, (and males are bigger) I really don’t see much difference between spayed female cats and neutered male cats. I think the male cats I had were secretly relieved of being culled from the gene pool and therefore set free of the obligation to -well- screw like tomcats.
Thought I was going to post a gratuitous pic of feline copulation, eh?
Since I’m on the subject of nuts, (for what reason I have no idea) I have to comment on the illustrious, nutless wonder who is squatting in the White House. Normally, I can’t stand to listen to Obama speak, and if I feel I must find out what kind of garbage he’s spewing, I just read the transcript later. Unfortunately I was subjected to the Wanna-be-Imperial One’s press conference regarding the Ebola epidemic and his African summit while I was waiting on my car to get serviced at the Toyota dealership. Hindsight being 20/20, I wish that I had remembered my headphones, or that I had decided to wait outside.
Since I sat through every infuriating minute of it, I thought I would offer the rational person’s Cliff’s Notes on this particular address:
Let’s send billions more dollars in “aid” to Africa that will not be (and never is) used to do anything to ameliorate squalor, disease and poverty, but will be squandered on funding terrorists, supporting regional warlords, and empowering garden-variety thugs. While we’re at it, we’re just going to open our borders to every terrorist, scumbag and non-English speaking, uneducated indigent who can manage to traipse on in. Because terrorists need love too? Then the Naked Emperor cries and whines and wonders out loud why American corporations are clamoring to incorporate in foreign countries to avoid the evil IRS and its labyrinthine and oppressive tax system.
Oh, and we can’t send the Ebola medicine to Africa because it’s experimental…and they might die from it. Even though they are almost certainly going to die from the Ebola, why should we try giving a drug that might help? Someone might sue us or something.
I almost threw up all over the customer lounge. Thankfully by that time, my tire rotation and car wash were done and the service advisor had come to retrieve me. I just hope they torqued my lug nuts to 76 ft lbs. like the owner’s manual suggests.
On the way home I had a few insights on B.O.’s asinine rhetoric.
1. Why are we spending a red dime to support any terrorist harboring country? I don’t give a flying fart in a high wind what’s going on there. It’s not our problem. In fact, as cruel as it sounds, perhaps some of these third world holes could use some thinning of the herd. Especially when foreign aid never seems to get where it’s supposed to go, and the poverty and desolation persists no matter how many billions of dollars are thrown at it.
2. Why do veterans go without medical treatment, and American citizens are taxed so heavily they can’t afford their own healthcare (even though they work for a living) while our government pisses away our tax dollars to support terrorists and others who only want to kill us and send the world back to the Dark Ages? Americans’ money could be better spent on our own infrastructure and military, and to secure our borders against the terrorists and thugs, but what do I know?
3. Why is this illegitimate president still squatting in our White House?
