Saving Your Dog's Self Esteem??? about it's more like you derive your manhood from your dog's nuts??? Yeah, sounds like the dog is NOT the one with the self esteem issues.

Today's topic was inspired by an interesting discussion about how people I volunteered to neuter, already had no testicles..BUT what I could do for them was IMPLANT fake ones (yes, these things do exist - more on that in a minute) so it would a least APPEAR as if they had some cajones!

Anyhow, yes, there is a product called Neuticles that is essentially fake testicles for your dog. This is directly from their website:  Neuticles allows your pet to retain his natural look, self esteem and aids in the trauma associated with altering.

Really??? Trauma - same as another other surgical procedure - in fact much less trauma than many others including "altering" a female dog! Oh they mean the "mental trauma." Right. Why is that no one seems to worry about an ovariohysterectomy and the loss of those body parts from a female dog or cat? Women are not too attached to their pets gonads but somehow SOME men seem to derive all their manhood from their dogs testicles. I am not kidding. I don't think we need these, any more than some fake uterus that we'd implant so she'd "feel" normal again. Really? 

Oh and these are not inexpensive. The cost of the actual neuticles, combined with the cost of surgery are FAR greater than any neuter procedure. Guess that's what they call a "stupid" fee. 
There are some ethical concerns with this product as well. One could implant these and potentially sell a dog that appeared to be "intact" as a possible breeding dog. An unsuspecting buyer could be in for a big surprise. 

Honestly, the dog does NOT care about not having his testicles. If YOU care that much, please seek professional, psychiatric medical advice.
