Mr. Big Giant Poodle Head Bear is currently in the doggie hospital, having a little surgery. He will be a bit lighter tonight (Let's just say he will be less two "ornaments"). And, A. (my 8 year old) asked THE question-
"Why does Bear have to get fixed so that he can't make babies? He's a boy, and boys don't have babies." I said we would sit and talk it all over on the weekend (when I get my wits and a good stiff drink in me) She said,"Is it gross?" I said, "Well, you might think so." She wrinkled up her nose, pondered for a minute, and said,"Then I don't want to hear about it." Do you think I am saved for a little while?
Nah, I didn't think so.
By the way, I don't know why it is called "getting fixed", when BEFORE the surgery, they work just fine! So, I guess Bear is out "getting broken".
