Well, My Dog Is Gay...Now What?
Animals are, in many ways like humans. They have emotions, and personalities and even sexual preferences! My dog, a male Pomeranian, just so happens to be openly gay. I love my little guy, as any mother would love their own child, and i accept his choice.
I first noticed his odd behavior when he was about 4 years old. He was very prancy and flamboyant. I assumed all Pomeranian's were like this, so i didn't pay much mind. I started taking him to the dog park on a weekly basis to make some new friends (for him, not me) and he kept to himself, only dancing around the perimeter of the fence, ignoring the other dogs. When other pooches would approach him, he would get very temperamental! This was very strange, since he is a friendly attention seeker. I started to take note that all of the dogs that were at the park that day were female..
As the weeks went by i started taking note how he acted around other dogs, putting him in rooms with other male dogs, and watching his behavior. There was the chipper hoppy Winger i have always known and loved! When around other males he wears his smile big, his Polo collar popped and his nose implanted in the other males behinds. When he is surrounded by female dogs, he gets very temperamental and aggressive, growling, pointing his curly tail down and even in some cases snaps at the female. He is very popular among females, they often flirt and beg for attention, but unfortunately, it's just not what tickles my dog's fancy..
My dog is neutered, but doesn't stop him from kissing other dogs. I am OK with his decision, and of course love and support him and take him shopping for the clothes HE picks out. He has many outfits for all seasons and occasions including a Pea Coat, Ski Jacket, Boots, Tie and Polo Shirts. He wears a rainbow collar with a diamond bone name tag, with (our) phone number on it.
Lucky for me, when i got my cat, it happened to be Male.. and that is when Winger found his best friend for life.. My cat, Winger's little brother, MiLo.
He can be inappropriate at times too..
He loves to pose, and he is a camera hog.
At the end of the day, he is still my dog. I have dodged cars saving his life, put up with his offensive breath, sacrificed half of my bed for him... and i wouldn't have it any other way. Seeing his smile when i walk through the door everyday can turn any bad day around :)
