He Poops, He Scores!

July 18, 2008

Sorry for the lack of G updates this week. It has been crazy busy and my blogging time has been limited due to Mr. X requisitioning my lap top.  But, it’s Friday and I will be damned if there isn’t a margarita, mojito or other ‘m’ alcoholic beverage in my immediate future. 

Anywho, I did want to post about G’s play date last Sunday.  When we first got G, we were very interested in getting him socialized with other dogs.  We didn’t think he had a lot of exposure to other dogs in his previous life and since we have no other dogs, we wanted him to have doggy friends.  Kind of like my parents did with me since I was an only child, except with other kids, not dogs.  Just wanted to make that clear.

So, my wonderful neighbor who also adopted her Golden from this rescue organization agreed to bring over her Golden for a play date with G.  We met outside in the front, with the dogs on leashes.  G went nuts at the sight of the other dog and was acting like a puppy!  He was so excited to see another Golden.  He’s also 70 lbs so when he gets excited it is like trying to control a freight train.  We walked down the street and back together so they could get to know one another and then headed to the backyard.

My boy definitely has some etiquette lessons in his near future. He started humping the other (boy) dog (and yes, he’s neutered).  It was so embarassing.  G was all about letting this dog know who was King of the Backyard! Eventually they settled down a little and we could take them off of their leashes.  Then the next contest started: the peeing and pooping contest.  First G peed, then the other dog peed where G peed, then G pooped and the other dog pooped where G pooped.  It was an orgy of marking.

They stayed about an hour and then it was time for the other dog to go home.  Apparently, my friend thinks that they managed to get along well enough that they can have another one.  I hope so, but G will mind his manners better next time!

    OMG! That’s too funny! I’m glad all the bodily functions didn’t ruin his play date….and it makes me wonder it this isn’t why my kids feel the need to visit the bathrooms every time we go somewhere new. Is it all “marking”?

    LOL! Sounds like G’s got a new buddy!
    Glad he’s found a friend.
