ethics of neutering

so, i've been thinking about neutering. keene got fixed yesterday. before, i was quite certain that fixing the dog was the best thing for everyone. i mean, how many animals are put down at the shelters, especially labs. so, even though our dog is a pure bread, i knew that neutering him was the right thing.

but then, i started thinking about what kind of person am i to take away the choice one creature has from procreating. how arrogant we are, using our power to control what we want. yes, arrogance.

i still think it was the right thing to do.

and keene's fine. we can't hardly tell he even had a surgery, he's running around and energetic.
