SpayingSpaying your Aiken is not necessary as the Aiken does not have sex. And if it did have sex, the Aiken would make sure you never ever knew about it. Ever.
Socializing:Keep the Aiken away from Kelly Ripa. Kelly Ripa is deathly afraid of the Aiken's hand. Also keep the Aiken away from Rosie O'Donnell as O'Donnell's past attempts to be kind to the Aiken have made everyone extremely uncomfortable. Actually, the best part of owning an Aiken is that it will give you a good excuse to stay far away from Kelly Ripa and Rosie O'Donnell
Housebreaking:Be warned. You will want to train your Aiken immediately to defecate in private. Otherwise, countless young girls and middle-aged women will swarm your house to watch and applaud. Inexplicably, a certain portion of the population gets very excited whenever crap is emanating from the Aiken - especially when that crap is spewed on television or saved on CD.
Training:The Aiken can be trained to sing show tunes or other pop songs traditionally sung by women. The Aiken can sing them like a women even though the Aiken is not a woman. Technically. Sometimes, the Aiken will also attempt to sing rock music. Do not tolerate this behavior. You wouldn't let your dog drag its ass along your oriental rug.
