Bleary-eyed, but here
Friday, March 12th, 2010

There’s nothing worse than listening to male dogs, who still have their testicles, bark and whine all night long because the bitch among them is in heat.

My daughter has a malinois named Zazo. She’s a good dog, if a little crazy. You have to approach her a certain way and watch to see whether she gives you the crazy eye or lays down her ears—if she doesn’t, you don’t have to worry about her going for your throat. I can be a little blasΓ© about that because my husband trained serious dogs for most of our marriage and I’ve laid a Rottweiler on the ground once when she went for me—it’s all about establishing a pecking order. But back to the problem. Zazo went into heat the day before I arrived here to help the red-headed hellion.

Last night, there was no getting any sleep. This morning the shepherd and the malinois were walked together—yeah, we’ve been wanting them to tie—but the screeching from the male when she kept trying to crawl away from him when his man-part was still locked inside her had me saying, “You go, girl.” The really painful part of this ordeal is the male dachsund. He thinks he’s got a chance. And he’s wearing out himself and everyone else with his constant whining.

I stayed up to help daughter with her homework after she got home from her Sprint job at 1:00 AM. We went to bed about 3:30. At 7:00 the alarm went off so that we could walk dogs and get the 5-year-old ready for school. Then we went back to bed. Daughter can sleep through the noise, but here I am bleary-eyed and making a really lousy posting because I’m ready to roast two pairs of nuts.

    Ear plugs. That’s my suggestion for you.

    LOL! Such a way with words πŸ™‚ Poor little daschund. My dog is a mutt but she looks like a cross between a rotty and a chihuahua so we call her a Chihuatwiler: just imagine that mating for a moment πŸ™‚

    Look on the bright side, the rooster could stand outside your window and crow at about 3 am. We had one once and he never managed to know what time daylight began!

    Lisa! You’re so smart. Only problem is the dachsund HAS to sleep with me. He can’t stop moving because he’s so darn horny. I keep half-awake because he’s already tried to hump my knee.

    Rachel! She laughs, and I was completely serious! πŸ˜†

    LOL! Well, any guilt I was feeling about having my Lab’s balls cut off just went flying out the window, thanks!
    Maybe you can read some of your books to Zazo and put her in the mood for a threesome? πŸ˜†
