Fixin the 5 year old?

3 posts in this topic

I have been in the service a little over a year now. My English Setter never really had a problem until I left. He urinated starting after I left for basic. I was home 20 days ago for R&R and the 1st chance he had he urinated all over my gear. I am back in the suck and just got an email from my folks that he urinated all over my clothes that my mom had prepped for storage and the question came up wheather we should fix him or not. He is a 5 1/2 year old English Setter from good lines, but I have no interest in breeding him. Am I really going to lose anything by getting him snipped? Other than maybe some of his respect.

Do you think that "fixing" your dog will solve the issue? I am not sure that at 5 years old it will change much. Is the thought that getting your dog fixed will decrease the desire to mark his territory? From what I have heard (and it could be a myth) if they are not fixed early, you will not change this behavior of lifting a leg and marking everything in site. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

On a side note, I would like to thank you for your service for our country.

I don't know if it was coinsidence but, I have a 9 year old springer that would pee in my basement the minute we left the house. I had him fixed this spring and he has stop that all together. Now it is very rear that he pees in the basement and when he does it is usually my fault for not letting him out.

I see your at Fort Bragg. I have relatives that live in Fayetteville. That is an interesting city. Thanks for serving our country.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
