is this a puppy thing? will neb grow out of it and eventually just have normal penis fur?

....it always gets wet when he pees.

i resisted an urge to trim it off


here's a pic, in case nobody knows what i'm talking about:


thanks!

Molly, who is a girl and obviously doesn't have a penis
but had that same little piece of fur at the end of her vagina as a puppy an would get wet too when she peed. We called it the "scorpion stinger"....don't ask my why....my hubby came up with that
She is now 3 years old and no longer has that little piece of fur at the end.

My friend's rescued affenpinscher has that, too. He has not grown out of it. I know some dogs do,though. I would trim it if it bothers you.

it weirds me out a bit, but it's mostly that he'll go outside, and then like a goof, i pick him up and i'm like 'yuck! pee fur!'....well, at least urine is sterile, right?

....i need to carry around a little 'scorpion stinger' towel! ....or stop picking him up, but i don't want to do that


(mollysmom that's cute!)

I think we called it scorpion stinger because we were always getting hit with it if she was crawling over us or something and it happened to be after she just went pee, so I know the feeling of getting hit with the pee fur
Too funny!!

Keefer had that bit of hair too. I don't think it's there anymore, but it's hard to tell because he's always got his 'thang' hanging out the end of the sheath, lol! I didn't worry about trimming it since he usually managed to pee all over the back of his front legs when he was young, so a little wet fir at the tip of his penis was not a big deal in comparison.


I agree with Lauralie, Neb is ADORABLE!!!

I have always looked at it as a BLESSING that puppies have that. That is the easiest way to tell if they "go" when they are supposed to. Especially for puppies that aren't as obvious with their "pee stance". (Or if it is very dark out and you can't tell if they "went" or not.) All you have to do if you aren't sure they peed is look at the pee hairs! Especially since I have had some puppies that get "wise" to the "rules". (The rule around here is when you go out you MUST pee before coming back in the house.) I have had some get so wise to the "rules" that they will FAKE it and squat but NOT "go". (Especailly if it is raining and they are the type that doesn't like to get rained on.)

My 8yo male will STILL fake it sometimes. If I "insist" that he "goes", he will lift his leg on something but nothing will come out. Then he looks at me with a look that clearly says, "SEE, I don't NEED to "go".
However with him, since he IS 8yo and NEVER goes in the house, I believe him.

Don't you just LOVE that?

Another reason to LOVE the "girls". They don't pee on themselves.

My Cocker, Tazer, has that. I use the clippers when I trim him to remove it. It just makes a mess.

BTW - Tazer is 9.

That's what I had forgotten when I got James. Nothing worse than him going out to pee and coming in wanting to jump up and say hi with his pee'd on front feet. Blech. He got me twice that way (I'm a slow learner) then I started kepeing a towel by the door to wipe him off with on the way in.

thanks guys


i agree, a place to trim carefully. that's actually why i haven't, i have horrible mental images of him squirming or something....yikes!

lauralie, he's actually had a nail trim....but there was such a short distance to the quik, and i'm always terrified of cutting that. he's wasn't too squirmy though, thank goodness.

cassidy's mom....LOL! suddenly i'm not minding a little bit of penis fur getting peed on!

actually, once i started taking luc out at the same time as neb, neb started copying how he pees (which does not involve hitting the front legs....sort of a forward squat).

he and neb have been bonding lately (luc is still a bit nervous of him, but played (gently) 'push puppy down with foot' yesterday (luc's a bit retarded at playing, as the bf says 'he's special'....i guess he just never got the opportunity to learn) - neb LOVED it, i was like, 'eesh, you're both nerds' but it's so nice to see them play. and luc let neb sorta crawl a bit up his face today and give luc lots of kisses
. teagan's love for neb is already well-established....holy puppies can get away with anything! though i always make sure the adults have a 'puppy free' zone they can go to....

You mean all girls don't lift their legs as high as they can on trees and let the pee just run down their standing leg since they have no ability to aim. *cough* GIA *cough*

lucky me.

Chevy has that hair too and I am always wanting to cut the hair off but didn't know if it served some purpose other than getting wet everytime he goes!
