Still resting up after all the romance.
The chicken feather guy’s female went into heat the other week and oh what a week it’s been. Every dog within three miles came to pay their respects, including Puppy.
Now, Puppy isn’t a large dog, he’s a healthy mid-size, but he THINKS he’s the biggest dog around. He was in the closest proximity and got there first and set up camp since the other fellas had to make a trek to see the star attraction.
Every night the howling serenades sounded for about two weeks. Every evening, the guys gathered around to show their prowess in the hopes of winning the favor of this fair damsel.
So as not to lose his space in the competition, Puppy didn’t come home at night. We worried every night as we listened to the dogs fight up the hill. Some jerks on motorcycles came one night and were shooting at the dogs that had gathered.
The Puppers, although already bigger than Puppy, aren’t old enough to quite understand what’s going on. But they did put up a fuss when Puppy didn’t come home, adding to the cacophony at night.
All’s well that ends well and Puppy came home this past weekend, rather worse for wear. He’s resting and eating, although he still seems a bit touchy where the Puppers exuberant antics are concerned.
Since it’s apparent Puppy can’t control his hormones and the Puppers will be mature dogs before too long, we think that a little snipping is in order. Moroleon sponsors free spay and neuter campaigns periodically and we’ll keep an ear to the ground for the next one.
Enjoy more animal antics!
