"That's what happens when you have sex?"
The saga continues on raising boys....
So I have this dog, her name is Trynity. She's like.....2 years old. She decided to go into heat earlier this year. Why, I don't know. After about the 4th or so male dog I saw her having relations with in about 2 days, I told her she needed to have some respect for herself for crying out loud. I raised her better than that. But, as a Parvo survivor, I figure she has a love for life now and wants to make the best of every opportunity. But I'm going to tell you about the first suitor.......and what my boys did when they caught this suitor and my Trynity.
It was a cold snowy morning in February, this year. My boys were headed to school like every other morning. When I went to start my car so it could be heating up for my kids, I saw them. So embarrassing, but there they were, in plain sight, for all the neighbors and people driving by to see. My dog and another one from across the street, they were on my front porch and he was molesting her. I quickly scanned the neighborhood to see if anyone was watching, or if anyone had seen that I had witnessed this act in progress. Nobody. Thank Goodness. There's just something that feels icky when you come upon this going on, dog mating, there I said it. And it just makes things feel awkward when you know someone saw you see this going on. So I went inside and secretly prayed they would be finished and gone when we had to go to the car. I didn't want my boys to see this. Not because I was sheltering them, but because I was preventing having to answer any questions.
I waited a few minutes, looked out my front window and great, they were nowhere to be seen. So we all headed out to the porch. "Shit ass!" it slipped from my mouth as the first thing our eyes were met with was Trynity, and the dog from across the street, on the porch under the window where I couldn't see them from inside......STUCK together.
And here we go.....
"Ew mom, what are they doing? Why are they stuck like that" Ethan asked
Me: "Ugh, Andrew go get Paul, you two, get in the car and cover your eyes." yea like that's gonna make any difference at this point.
Have you ever seen 2 dogs get stuck together after they get done with their play time.....first of all, I haven't been able to look at my Trynity the same since then. It's just changed her in my eyes. It is one of the most disturbing, gross, embarrassing things to witness......at least it is for me. Especially because it became quite the production for several more days after this, my dog and at last count, one of 7 other male dogs. A production on my front porch, in my yard, on the corner of my block, on the corners opposite mine. Every time I looked outside I was met with this vision. I would see people drive by and point laughing at my promiscuous little dog stuck to the neighborhood dog Fabio. It wasn't funny and I was mortified. Couldn't they at least find a dog house...............here I am again, straying from the story. Anyway....if you want to see what I mean when I say stuck....just google it in images and there are hundreds you can get the idea. I refuse to post one here.
So, on with my story, Paul comes outside and tells Andrew to go get some warm water. While this is going on, I tell the boys, this is how dogs mate, make puppies, whatever you wanna say.
Daniel, my 13 year old says.... "Oh so that's how dogs do sex?
This was getting more awkward by the minute. Paul attempted to get the dogs apart by pouring warm water at the "site". Meanwhile, I pulled away and headed to the school. On the way the boys continued with their questions....
Ethan, my 11 year old...." Ew mom that's gross. So that's what happens when you have sex? You get stuck together?"
Andrew my 10 year old...."Yep, unless you have a cup of warm water...right mom!"
