Okay, I'm fighting my boyfriend on this issue. I want to spay Raika and he doesn't. He says that eventually he may breed her. He's not a dog breeder and I don't know how I can get him to realize how important this is!! I want her to live a healthy life, I don't want to have to worry about her getting humped in the back yard if I go inside for a few minutes!!! I think I'm just going to offer to pay for it and see if that works. I'm also going to get info from the vet tomorrow when we go for her final round of shots. Hopefully he'll say something that will help me talk Steve into it.
