Willing but not able.

The boys have been settling in together nicely over this past month.  I have not been running them as much in favor of longer walks daily.  I think the bonding time during walking is good for them.  On Sunday however, one of the grey-play couples was nice enough to have people over to their house.  They have a very nice big back yard and it was pleasant to sit in the lawn chairs and chit chat while the dogs explored.  We had the added bonus of having free seats to an Air show.   I have to say that after that I can guarantee that none of these dogs are noise phobic.  F-18s (I believe) were flying stunts, looping, falling out of the sky and then kicking their jets in with a boom you could feel in your chest.

The dogs were completely unaffected.  There was one thing that did affect our wily boys though.  A foster greyhound was in residence and she was in heat.  I guess they have to wait until after they are finished before any procedures are done.  Now I should state for the record that no dogs were impregnated nor in danger of impregnation during the making of this blog entry.  After the backlash against a facebook naughty doggy pic posted by lifewithdogs, I think that is worth while mentioning.  While the female had not been fixed yet, the boys found themselves ill-equipped for the task.  This mere fact however did not stop the boys from trying.  They sensed a female in need and wanted to help reduce her stress.  Kassa did a good deal of stiffing but not much else.  Ricky must have gotten a hold of a copy of the Kama Sutra, because the angles he was approaching the problem from had nothing to do with procreation and so must have purely been aimed at pleasure.  The rock star of the group was Tequila Lee who, with perfect form and grip, attacked the problem like a pro.  Now when ever this activity started we separated them but I can honestly say that the boys really enjoyed this outing.

That is so funny! The poor boys. Imagining Ricky trying the kama sutra, hilarious.

I'll definitely give a kick from you, thanks.

Oh, I've read some HILARIOUS stories about females that go into heat and the effects on the poor male dogs. There have been some real doozies I've read over the years, and really, what can you do but laugh?

It sounds like a good time was had by everyone:) It's great that neither boy was affected by all the noise. I think it would be awful to have a noise phobic dog.
