I have an intact boy that will be 12 months old in two weeks.
I have two intact girls that have gone into heat back to back.
The boy is going nuts because there is a bitch still in heat in the house.
I've been off work for 2 weeks with the flu.
It's cold and snowy and miserable, and I don't have the energy, or the inclination, to go freeze my butt off to play with him outside.
Hence the happiness of finding the Bad Cuz toy that wore him out.
That's my story.
LOL--Diane, I got the rant in your first post, I understand it perfectly! I have a rescue who was a former breeding girl, and a boy who was neutered, but not that long ago. Jade, the girl, is dog aggressive, and although we have a very large fenced yard, every neighbor who borders our fence has dogs. I was going to get her spayed this month, but--surprise, she's in heat 6 weeks early! In heat, Jade is like she has pms squared, and she goes out the back door stalking, got to see which one of those other dogs is out, and she obsesses about a golden/chow cross way at the back of our 1/2 acre--since Jade has been here she has been determined to take poor Sasha out.
So until Spring when I can get another fence up to separate her from the back neighbors, I go with her every time she goes out, and she has to be on leash if Sasha is out. Along with all the dog drama, we have intense cold, wind chills way below zero, more snow every other day, and never enough exercise right now for 2 WL GSDs, who desparately need a job. For the past 3-4 years we have had unseasonably mild winters, so this one seems all the worse. Where is Spring???
