Day 15 of Farrah’s first heat cycle. She is close to ovulating based on the color of her fluids and the boys’ sudden urgent desires to be right next to her. Ike and Grym are eating well and SUPER affectionate, but they have developed a sudden level of crazy energy and bravado that is frankly impressive. Ike has become extremely vocal and annoying, and Grym is a drooling knucklehead. They have demonstrated some equally impressive peeing contests around the yard, and my poor plants are taking the brunt of their displays.
Puppy acts completely normal, a bit tired at most, so it’s the boys’ reactions to the girls in season that further complicates owning intact dogs of both sexes. They are all rotated regarding yard times. When the boys are out, Farrah gets free run of the house with Beebe. The kitchen is her little palace I am calling Fort Lockdown (crate behind xpen behind baby gates). I’m trying to keep her down time as enjoyable as possible by giving her lots of bones to chew, taking her on outings and having friends over.
|Farrah enjoyed a reprieve from the boys attentions
and went shopping with us at our favorite local hardware
store. Naturally, we bought some dogwoods.
