Zodib/w

To Spay Or Not To Spay; That Is The Question

Recently I've been wondering when--or even if--I should spay Zodi. I've always had my female dogs spayed at around 6 months but I'm confused about some of the newer information I've been reading about the benefits of sterilization.
I don't intend to ever breed Zodi and I definitely don't want to deal with either the mess or inconvenience of having an intact female but I want to do whatever will optimize her health and well-being.
Can anyone point me to some good information on this question? Anyone want to weigh in with their opinion?
