Spay day

Faced with a lack of game show news, I did what I've done before: looked at the first item in a "game show" search on Google News.

Did you know that the last Tuesday in February is World Spay Day? The things you learn from Internet searches. The reason this item turned up in my search was, of course, Bob Barker and his advice on The Price is Right to spay or neuter your pets. Drew Carey has carried on the tradition, though possibly with a bit less enthusiasm.

Personal note: we're on our third Labrador Retriever and they've all been neutered. Though the vet suspects that our latest dog, a rescue pet, might have had a litter before the local Lab group saved her from the street. The linked story debunks various myths about pet neutering, though I never knew that the topic birthed (so to speak) many myths to begin with.

Bob Barker's animal rights activism has sometimes gone to extremes, but pet neutering is still a good idea. It's one less thing we have to worry about with our dog. Now if we could only get her to stop panicking every time there's a thunderstorm.
