Monday 10th September 2012 – Too much mischief for an old dog

I’m just going to lie here with my paws over my eyes and ears until it all goes away. If I didn’t know any better I’d say that it won’t be all that long until Megan starts her season too. You can just imagine how Aristotle is behaving, both his ‘girlfriend’ and his mother coming into season and he’s in his prime. If he isn’t sniffing and licking one or the other of them then he’s kissing Megan or nibbling her ear. Whatever is he going to do when she gets pregnant by another dog? I can just see him now storming round to see them about what they’ve been doing with his girlfriend. He’s not going to take it well. To be honest I think it might be kinder to take the boy on one side and explain it all to him, but I just don’t know where to start. ‘Aristotle, your girlfriend will be paying for sex with another dog. It isn’t that she doesn’t respect you, little buddy, it’s just that you can’t give her puppies and the other dog will be able to.’ I’m just hoping if I get that far that he doesn’t ask me questions about his mother’s relationship with his father and why she’s going to another dog next week. I know that once you get over the initial shock you can still build a relationship with your dad. I did and Megan will be seeing her dad when she goes to Switzerland with Shadow. It’s going to have to come from me though. Shadow isn’t in touch with either of her parents. We’re the only family she knows. Although, she is in touch with her brothers. I think that’s why her own children mean so much too her. She knows what sort of relationship she would have liked with her mum and dad and that’s what she’s trying to create for her own children. I’m so happy for her that she should be back in time to see them all at the Fun Day, even if she won’t be able to run around and play with them all.
