As The Dog Park Turns...

Yesterday my dog Alex ran into his girlfriend on his afternoon walk. These two are as adorable as two dogs can be. Girlie is a Schnoodle, a schnauzer-poodle mix, so she's this terrific little ball of white fluff. When she sits next to Alex, who looks like this, they look like a bride and groom (and for those of you who are wondering if I would be lame enough to have a "wedding" for my dog? I totally would be).

Sometimes Alex and Girlie lie on their stomachs and lick each other (yes, my dog is making out and he's only 2 1/2... and I am a terrible mother because not only do I NOT try to stop them, but I also take pictures). And once, when I took Alex over to Girlie's house, her owner and I found them upstairs on a bed together. And they looked pretty guilty if you ask me. Fortunately, both have had all the essential "wires" disconnected, so we won't be welcoming any wee black & white pups.

As we all chatted and played, played and chatted, Alex suffered a blow when he found out-- gasp! -- that Girlie had gone on vacation with another man! Enter Teddie the Beagle, another dog from our 'hood. Alex was quite distraught when he heard the news, and showed his anger to Girlie by ignoring her and rolling on a dead worm on the sidewalk. Boys are so very gross.

Girlie: Alex, oh Alex! Why do you rebuff me?

Alex: Quiet, bizzitch. I'm busy.

But as Alex thought more about the situation, he realized that he had nothing to worry about. Because it is apparent to most of us that Teddie?

Likes to run on the other side of the dog park.
Is fetching for the other team.
Drinks out of a different water bowl.



Okay. We think Teddie the Beagle must be gay.

Now, I don't know if dogs can technically be gay. I admit I haven't done any reading on this. But whenever Teddie and Alex meet during walks, Teddie goes straight for Alex's "disconnected wires" area. And has no interest in anything else. And? I have never seen him do this to girl dogs, although he has had ample opportunity.

So if Girlie thought she was going to have a hot week in paradise with Teddie? She obviously didn't realize that Teddie prefers his own brand of rawhide.

So, it's still Alex + Girlie = luv 4 eva.

At least until next summer, when she might sneak off to Barbados with Chuck the Rottie.

You forgot to mention that we have the "pornographic" pictures of Alex and Girlie on our refrigerator... ;-)

Bearette, I'll try to take some better pics of the two of them. The ones on the fridge are kind of blurry. It'll be hard, though, since they jump all over the place when they're together. ;-)

It is hard to take pics of dogs...I tried to take a picture of two dachshunds outside of the supermarket today. They were adorable, but they had really short attention spans and the flash confused them :(
