i'm with dan it's for population control. if you've convinced yourself it's really for other reasons, then that is your choice.

Well .... Dekka was done so I don't have to worry about her coming into heat when we are entered in a trial, and I don't have to torture her with panties.

Ther are more reasons imo than pop control.. but I am with you and Dan that the health benefits are not over all significant. (there are some interesting studies the last while)

To the OP.. just spay your dog, she will be more enjoyable for you and you won't have to worry about the danger and expense of an unwanted litter.

He's from Pakistan ... spay is an "American" word. I think they call it 'de-sexing' in the UK, for instance.
