    yay.... puberty....Yay. Just this week Hudson has decided to start marking one of the kitchen chairs and today I saw ball up his fleece bed and give it a few humps. I'll be honest, these behaviors are kind of baffling because growing up we always neutered our dogs before they got this old.

    Today Ollie, sweet, clueless Ollie, saw Keeva squat to pee and RAN towards her to lick it and chatter his teeth appreciatively. Charming. :lol-sign:

    LOL looking good, Hudson.

    Ollie is a year old and still pees like a girl. My mom's always like, "I swear I didn't cut his balls off..."

    It took Yarrow until over a year old to first lift his leg, and he still usually squats! But he has totally started doing the pee-licking-teeth chattering thing, and EWW! icky. Jasper never did that! He's far too dignified...

    Ugh!!
    Merlin has decided to start lifting his leg, too bad he is lazy and can't aim so pees ALL OVER HIMSELF/HIS FRONT FEET! Every single time!

    He has forgotten his brain, especially when it comes to his release cues

    Has developed some kind of white fluffy dog fetish and humps them at EVERY opportunity

    Forget peeing and pooping once, in one place. No, let's a 1000 times all over the block.

    Focus while walking somewhere? No. Let me make SUDDEN totally irrational stops to sniff very interesting poles/mailboxes/trees and then pee there.

    I could kill him some days.
    Boys!
    Ugh

    I was puppy sitting this weekend for a friend's 3mo BC. Yea, he started marking and humping while at my house. >.< I was so glad I could give him back! Lots of vibes for patience for all of you!

    Oh man, my next dog is probably going to be a boy and he's going to stay intact for at least 2 years. I have never had a boy dog before. It's going to be FUN.

    The breeders I've talked to (and I agree) that putting a bitch with Mia is probably not a good idea.

    We've gone FIVE WHOLE DAYS without Payton being a jerkface to Auggie.
    FIVE.
    I'm rollin' the dice on a full week, c'mon baby!!


    I would so trade this for the "I have never heard the word 'sit' before! What is 'here?' Oh you mean run away from you as fast as I can right?? I LOVE THAT GAME" puppy puberty. Ten times over. Because at least they are kind of still cute when they do that, even when you're like "YOU ARE SO NOT CUTE I HATE YOU WORST PUPPY EVER okay so you're kind of still cute stop looking at me like that it's cheating."

    Sherman decided to hump LoLa and then Judge. Judge told him off and all is well again. Except he really like LoLa and takes some convincing to leave her alone. He still squats to pee the majority of the time but so does Judge.

    FUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHHHHGGGGNNNNNN I dunno about that. It took Keeva 2 years to decide she liked me. :rofl1:

    Blossom's not so bad. Keeva was straight of out Mean Girls, Blossom is more like that skinny dork with braces who's also a basketball star.

    I really like girl dogs best but Mia is just such a personality that a boy is probably a lot better. *sigh*

    Maybe my boy dog will be like Nard. He is the most easygoing little dude. Knowing my luck I'll end up with a Beau that wants to hump everything and pee on everything.

    Dude, she's a corgi, are they CAPABLE of affection? :rofl1:

    Sloan nailed us, drew blood, and said FU at first but quickly became the most devoted, smartest (girls are easier to train, I'm convinced), sweetest dog ever.

    Seriously to each their own but I have always sought out males thinking girls were nasty bitches who didn't care but each female I have owned by accident (Hannah was a consolation gift when my male had been sold, Shamoo was a foster return, Sloan was Denis' buy + the female fosters I would have kept if I had the room) has been superior.

    I'm rolling the dice and hoping when I actually seek out a girl she'll be as awesome, pattern don't cheat me now.

    Laurelin, I do understand though, Denis wants a big burly male next and that is a scary thought with Backup and Arnold in our house. Luckily he's pretty much a one dog guy so we've got a long time before be wants another dog, at least until Sloan begins to slow down in her sporting endeavors.

    Oh now she's very affectionate...and manipulative, LOL. But the girls in her line are known for being aloof until 2-3 anyway. Now she's only bitchy with other dogs, and only when they deserve it (she says!).

    No, honestly, I really enjoy/appreciate my girls (and like yours, the two after Mackenzy were happenstance, I really wanted a male) and wouldn't trade them for the world. I guess my point was more that I've known plenty of girls who had rough adolescent periods as well as boys.

    I think both sexes have their charm. But I'm ready for a boy now.

    Ugh Zip Tie grabbed an early adolescent card. Teeth chattering and humping have been there since the beginning. I came home yesterday from work and my husband said "the koolies have been separated all day because that nasty boy won't stop humping Zinga." When this all started happening, I was all a like "Well, maybe Zing is coming into heat." Nope, not the case.

    On the whole boy versus girl thing. Girls all the way. I would so much rather have a snotty girl with a great work ethic than a goofy boy who just melts when you touch him.

    Lets be honest, she's a cute girl with super model legs, you can't blame the poor boy. :p

    Shockingly Backup has never been a big humper unless Sloans in heat but the tasting, oh he's always tasting.
