Is Fido Feeling Testy?
Gregg Miller, the inventor of Neuticles, is the most recent recepient of the Ig Noble Prize. The Ig Noble Prize by the editors of the Annals of Improbable Research Magazine to honor those researchers making breakthroughs in the "offbeat" side of science and progress.
Miller, of Independence Missouri, first came up with the idea for prosthetic testicles for canines when it came time to neuter his Bloodhound, Buck. Miller was shocked when he learned that "the testicles are permanently removed when the pet is neutered- Buck would no longer be Buck!" I guess that'd make him buck-less. Miller worked with a team of vets and created the first CTI, or Canine Testicular Implant, and implaneted them on a Rotweiler named Max.
8 years later, and 150,000 new pairs of prosthetic balls later, the CTI Corporation is a success! There have been reports of NOT ONE single complication. And now Miller is the latest scientist/inventor to receive the Ig Noble Prize given out at Harvard University.
Obviously thousands of dogs and dog owners are incredibly happy with their new set of Neuticles. They help take away the trauma of being neutered...it's like nothing was ever taken from them. Dogs can walk proudly with that familiar sagging between their legs...and their confidence with bitches is sky-high!
The Neuticles come in a variety of sizes and textures, to match your dog's orginial nuts. I guess you can even upgrade in size if you want. I wouldn't suggest putting a Great Dane's set on a Chihuahua. That's just plain cruel. Miller is now making prosthetic testicles for cats, horses, and bulls as well. You can buy the standard pair of Neuticles made of safe Polyprophylene. Or you could pay just a little extra for a set made of solid Silocone, Neuticles Natural. You can even get the Neuticles Ultra - silocone testicles with Scar Retard, formulated to prevent scarring. Brilliant!
How happy are dog owners with their new Neuticles? Check out some testimony below:
"I've put off neutering "Crooked Joe" for months and when I found out about Neuticles and spoke to them it made me feel better about neutering. Joe not only looks the same now- but dosen't know he's missing anything." Jeff Lane - Oak Park, Ill .
"He's a guy and I wanted him to remain looking like one."Lane Hinderman - Metairie, Louisiana.
"Frodo never knew he lost anything and is just a happier little dog since he's been neutered with Neuticles."Janell Suasser - San Lorenzo, CA.
The success of Neuticles and winning the Ig Nobel Prize is a dream come true for Gregg A. Miller. "Considering my parents thought I was an idiot when I was a kid, this is a great honor," he said. "I wish they were alive to see it." More than a decade ago, Miller had maxed out his credit cards and took out another mortgage on his home to bring the dream of Neuticles to reality...to bring solace to neutured animlas and animal lovers.
Dog owners all over the world are going nuts over it.
