We have two Labradors: Kai, who is now over seven years old, and Watson, who is now 13 months, and heavily into puberty.
We became the owners of Kai when he was three, and he was already neutered when we got him. He has a gentle nature, and wins the hearts of everyone that meets him. Watson, on the other hand is a typical teenager, pushing the boundaries at every opportunity. He also pushes Kai around, while Kai just wants a quiet life.
So we decided to level the playing field by neutering Watson.
This morning he went for the chop. That was done without problem. Now he is coming to terms with the fact that something has changed. He’s feeling a bit sorry for himself, but I’m sure that will pass. He’s also being subjected to the indignity of wearing a one-piece garment at the moment in an attempt to stop him licking his wounds.
