Roscoe sorry to hear that pal.
Hanging around with that old man and a kid he never got to use his equipment anyways
Nature fixes us all eventually.
I wish I didn’t have to fix my kitten so soon, but she doesn’t seem to be bothered by it one bit.
In fact, she seems quite happy and content – much happier than she was at only six months and desperate all the time.
Yeah, I know it’s for a gag. But I don’t think animals will mind to much if you fix them.
Good old Bob Barker just died
I thought Roscoe’s dream is to be a golden retriever.
In honor of today’s strip and the late Bob Barker, “Be sure to get your pets spayed or neutered!”
I know people who would have benefited from being fixed. Mankind would prob be happier as well.
I’d say that’s pretty good advice.
Poor Roscoe would have protested, but he doesn’t have the b@lls for it! :D
In the first frame, ol’ Roscoe looks like he been hittin’ the ol’ peace pipe
We still love you Roscoe!
Just seeing Roscoe’s expression in the final panel!
Dogs rules of life, “If you can’t eat it or play with it just urinate on it and walk away.”
Awww ! So sorry for the precious Roscoe : (
It’ll change a guy.
“Fixed” is such a strange term. If he wasn’t broken why was he fixed?
When dogs get fixed, they must look up at their owners and think “I thought I was supposed to be your best friend! What the hell”
I needed that
Was Roscoe broken?
Over on For Better or For Worse right now, Farley the dog is pretty glad he’s not fixed! But his owners and the owners of the girl dog (won’t use the b word) next door will definitely NOT be happy!
Yeah, I kind of wish that for my own dog, I caved and shouldn’t have.
Ah Roscoe…oh what you have missed……….
Hmmm… Maybe Roscoe misses being in the “mood”.
cmerb: do you hve a comment?
Just be happy you can think in ENGLISH.
It’s over rated Roscoe, you’re not missing much and won’t be suffering performance anxiety
Earl might be projecting a bit here. Dogs are adaptable. They accept things. It doesn’t mean they like everything. I am pretty sure my dog would prefer to run loose – and get killed or stolen – but I keep her on a leash for her safety. I bet she would prefer to eat what I eat every day, but I make sure she gets meals that are very good for her and let her sample most of what I eat. Roscoe looks like he could use a few more daily walks. I bet he loves his walks and gets very few. He needs long walks. They can’t tell us what they would really prefer.
On the other hand you aren’t distracted as badly as you would have been. Many were the times I could not pay attention to my teacher in school.
OUCH! I’ve heard just about eunuch about this.
They say they fix doggie, but they really breaking him.
yeah, but they have it made. all they have to do is look cute and all their needs and wants are attended to.
Look on bright side, Roscoe doesn’t need an upstart pup to steal his spot!
I know it’s supposed to be better for them in the long run…but I’ve never had any of my dogs fixed. I just cant do it, imagining what it would be like for ME! Now cats are a different matter. Every cat I’ve had I’ve gotten fixed, though all the cats I’ve ever had were female. And never let them go outside..EVER. AND I have NEVER declawed a cat. That’s just torture on them and every cat I’ve ever seen that was declawed had mental problems of some sort. With all that being said, I lost my last cat a year ago, she was 20. When the wife and I got married 12 years ago we had 4 dogs between us, I buried the last one 3 years ago. We have both decided that that’s it for pets. She just doesn’t want the heartache and expense. I’ve got her talked into a fish tank, but we also have full custody of our 2 grandkids….oldest just turned 9….and need to wait until they get older for the fish’s sake.
I know that Brian is merely retreading the tired, old gag about pets being perturbed by having been spayed or neutered, but it’s nonetheless a despicable message when millions of unwanted dogs and cats are put to death each year. Appropriate punishment? Require Brian to volunteer to help with a day’s euthanasia responsibilities at a local shelter.
This is a case of “Fixed means you’re broken”. (Just like some items I’ve tried to fix.)
Don’t we all Roscoe?
Still a good puppy!
Poor Rossco. Poor Earls been “FIXED” by advancing years and he’s not complaining.
