The Girl Next Door is HIGHLY Overrated

I am beyond tired. I was up ALL night long, thanks to the HIGHLY overrated girl next door who is suddenly the object of Duke’s lust.

Duke: The large chocolate labrador. Who really does nothing except lie around and groan and sleep. WHICH I LIKE ABOUT HIM. Until last night.

Last night he did not sleep. He was OBSESSED with going out to the backyard about every hour and staying out there and then scratching to come back in as soon as I’d fall asleep. There are three dachshunds across the alley. I suppose one of them is particularly… interesting right now.

That’s the nice version.

At 3 am it translated to, “IT’S A WEENIE DOG, DUKE. A GIRL WEENIE DOG HO THAT IS NOT WORTH THIS DRAMA I PROMISE YOU THEY NEVER ARE WORTH IT GO TO SLEEP. AND? YOU ARE A LARGE DOG. SHE IS NOT. YOU’D GET ARRESTED IF YOU EVEN TRIED. LEAVE HER ALONE. YOU’RE BEING A TOTAL ONE TRACK MINDED DOG AND… AND… WHAT’S THE WORD…? AH. ANTHROPOMORPHIZING. THAT’S WHAT THIS IS. I DON’T CARE. GO TO SLEEP. YOU ARE NOT GETTING LUCKY TONIGHT OR ANY OTHER NIGHT WITH THE GIRL NEXT DOOR. AND EVEN IF SHE’S NOT A HO DOG, SHE’S WAAAAAY TOO SHORT FOR YOU.”

But he pretty much did NOT believe me. And then the cat started chasing moths (what with all the lights going on and off all night) all over the place and that didn’t help.

Callie seemed bewildered by all of it. I did not have the heart to explain it to her.

This could last 21 days. I know, because I started my day by googling how long a dachshund is in heat. And if you begin your day like THAT, then it might be a really rough day.

lol when our little Cassie the Chihuahua went into heat before we could get her “fixed”, the neighbor’s dog, Brutus, a 75 pound pit bull, became obsessed. He sat on our front steps, cried, pawed, whined, and practically stood on his head when I brought Cassie and Sissy out to do their business. His head is bigger than the two of them combined! I suggest you get Duke “fixed”. His interest in the girl next door will subside quickly. Or you could move to another neighborhood for 3 weeks.

i SHOULD, that was a mike thing. i dont’ remember why. i think he actually said he’d have less to live for if we did that and not live as long. (that’s about all i better say about that.)

i put Duke outside last night and was so glad he didn’t scratch to come back in. he usually does.

Our boy dog (Freaky) is fixed. Our girl dog (Princess) is not. She should be but every time we have her appointment scheduled something happens to delay it, but anyways… Event though Freaky is fixed he still becomes completely obsessed with Princess when she goes into heat. He follows her around, does obscene things that fixed dogs shouldn’t do, whines and irritates all of us. He becomes a total perv. so it might help to have Duke fixed but it might not completely stop his obsession.

P.S. Thank you for turning on spell check in your comment box, it’s helpful when I comment late at night to see the red squiggly lines appear under everything, otherwise my comments would be a giant mess and then it wold make me crazy at some later point if I saw all my mistakes. Like in some of my other comments in the past.

I am so glad right now that I have a fixed girl dog. She may have her problems, but *that* is not one of them.

Also, I’m no vet, but I’m pretty sure the “not having anything to live for” thing is a load of … well you know.
