Of course, with a new pup now six months old, we suffer the odd embarrassing moment with our new family member as he goes about discovering male canine life. As per usual with a dog of any breed, he is quite unashamed to have a good sniff of visitors’ groins and nether regions. He also tries to be a big tough guard dog, protecting his new territory by undertaking a good, if not still puppy sounding, barking session at himself in a mirror.
Attacks of savage biting and snarling at any leaf that happens to flutter by during his walks also makes him feel worthwhile, as does rewarding himself by bringing home a prized stick that he carefully chose from a thousand others. Then there is his new passion. Growling. Albeit that he does his most fierce growling when he is bouncing up and down as only an uncoordinated puppy can do. Often miss timing his landing, and flopping in a furry heap.
But of course the most embarrassing moments are when our young male cocker spaniel puppy decides that he needs a little practice in the romance department. Humping, and thrusting away with a good solid front paw hold on absolutely anyone’s leg in the hope of perfecting the art before he may need to do it for real. Not that is highly likely, but like a good scout, he’ll be prepared.
My wife and I were joking the other evening, after she suffered another amorous attack from our pup, that perhaps a blow up bitch would be a practical idea. Of course we were joking and had a good laugh at what a silly idea it was. Who in their right mind would be silly enough to make sex toys for dogs?
How wrong we were. In looking for an appropriate image to accompany this post about our puppy’s testosterone attacks, I came across this. Yes! For the very low price of 149 Euros, you too can satiate your little pup with a ‘Hot Doll’.
In the famous words of Victor Meldrew, ‘I don’t believe it!’
