Just missing. As best as the vet and any other dog person can tell, it's not up in there anywhere and never has been able to be palpated. He's not neutered. Just got one dangly.

Many cryptorchids have testicles that are up in their abdomens and unable to be palpated. Probably not an issue now, but something to keep in mind if he has any issues down the line. That's far more likely than a dog born without a second testicle.

Testicles that are retained in the abdomen can develop sertoli cell tumors or seminoma; the dog can also experience testicular torsion (just what it sounds like, and I imagine as painful as it sounds.) Unaltered cryptorchid dogs are also flat out more likely to develop testicular cancer.


Auggie's undescended testicle was tucked up in his abdomen by his hip. The vet found it quickly, removed it easily, and it left a very small scar.

This. It's not just gone. It's there somewhere. Trouble waiting to happen. Undescended testicles should be removed.

Emotional black mail is my faaaaaavorite. I got contacted by a friend of a friend and HER friend was deported, leaving behind her two dogs with someone who wants them gone now or as she tells me, she'll euthanize them or leave them at the pound- "which ever is free or cheapest." One is a young Golden Retriever, not good with other males, with zero medical done and not altered, but I found him a rescue within 10 minutes. The other is a 9 year old spayed Pit/Boxer mix, friendly with every thing, UTD and no one will take her.

The friend is located in West Virginia and said if the Pitty can get to her, she'll happily have her. I can work out a transport, but I have to go pick up her up and hold her here until the route is filled. Not a big deal, but it hasn't been two weeks since Elsa was adopted and I'm trying to take a break and heal from her absence. She has no where else to go, so of course I can't say no.

Do you have a warranty on your laptop? Pirate did this when he was small and I sent it to the company as it was still under warranty. They replaced the cord, no questions asked.

My answer was finding a new job in the next two months.

Sigh.
That sucks. I'm sorry.

Laptop cords are super cheap on amazon.. Not that I've had to replace a few or anything....
