Today

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".

You are too funny. Just tell the princess that Bear needs to be "Fixed" not so he can't have babies but so he will be healthier, since dogs that don't get fixed are at a bigger risk for diseases (like cancer, but you don't have to use the c word). Is that better than the whole "babies" thing? (smirk)

You know that you're not off the hook...eventually, you will have to explain. You might try saying that Bear won't get distracted by the ladies...

Ha! When my son was two we got my husband "fixed" and I found a card for him that said "So. you got fixed? Didn't know you were broken!"
