Gogglebox: Bane is getting the snip!

The British bulldog is due to undergo the operation before the Fahd baby is born.

He's probably the most 'active' dog on TV, but all that is due to come to a halt it's been revealed that Bane the Bulldog is getting the snip at the end of the season. 

"It's happening," Matty reveals. "Sarah’s been delaying it and procrastinating for so long. I ask every week, if she’s booked him in for the snip. And she’s like, 'Oh yeah, but...' and that was three months ago. So, he keeps dodging and diving but he is going to get the snip."

"I’ll get off the phone to Matty and I’ll look at Bane and I’ll give him the thumbs up, like, ‘We delayed it a little bit longer buddy!’ Little thing," Sarah Marie adds.

But Matty reveals that their male bulldog is only undergoing the treatment due to the impending arrival of their first child. "Bane's got such a good temperament and we didn’t want to give him the snip just because that’s what everyone does. But what a good temperament is for an adult is different for a little baby, and we want him to be a little bit more chill before the baby comes," he says.

And while Sarah Marie agrees that the operation will make their frisky fur baby a bit more relaxed, it probably won't stop entirely stop him from doing what he loves to do best. 

"A lot of people think that if you desex your dog it stops them from humping. But to be honest, a male dog is kind of just a male dog!" says Sarah Marie. "I think he’ll still want to hump a little bit!"

"I don’t think he needs the snip, I just think he needs a root," Jad simply puts. 

Aside from toning down his sexual nature, Matty hopes the operation will also make Bane a bit more snuggly. As Matty reveals, "Bane's not really cuddly, aside from first thing in the morning when he’s half asleep. But generally, if he’s sleeping and you touch him, he’ll be like, ‘What are you touching me for, get off me’,” he says.

But not for Sarah Marie! "He’s become more like that with me only, but it only started when I fell pregnant," the makeup artist says. "While I’m on the couch he’ll come and be snuggly with me, then he’ll go and then come back for another cuddle. He doesn’t do that with other people."

But, Jad has one last request on Bane's behalf. "Before you give him the snip, take him out for a good time to the dog park," he says.

Who said Jad and Bane couldn't be friends?
