Dharma! You Cradle Robber!

So… we have a boy dog and a girl dog.  See the problem?  My wife and I don’t agree on getting the pets fixed.  Let’s just not get started on that though, I’ll just say I’m for it, she is against it.

Anyhow, we had puppies last year, when said problem came up the first time.  This year when Dharma, our female Doberman, went into heat, my wife promptly left for India for a week of vacation with her best gal pal.   Don’t you worry though!  She also left me a 13 year old step-son to help make sure those two tricky dogs never got left alone in a room together.

Biology has such a longer attention span then a novelist and a 13 year old. Darwin, our Border Collie, is proof of that.  There were two incidents, which makes me about 100% sure we’ll be having puppies again.

This leads me to my first reblog:  The Never Puppy | Shit-Pocalypse | A Documentary.

Enjoy !  Note, picture above was from the first week we brought Darwin home, so Dharma is less of a harlot then it appears.  We call the cross a “Borderman.”

  1. Oh dear. I don’t agree with the traditional spay and neuter, but have you ever considered tubal ligation for your female and a vasectomy for the male? They will still retain their “bits” but be unable to produce puppies. =]

    1. Hi Penny, Thanks for the comment!

      My wife is pretty well researched on the topic. I’ll have to ask her. She trained dogs professionally for a stint.

      If I’m being 100% honest, I’d have to admit that the puppies we got from the first batch were so amazing that I’m a hesitant to not be able to have more on purpose some day. I don’t know what it was about the mixture of the breeds (or maybe even just the two parents themselves), but they were just the most trainable, smart, and loving dogs. Even as puppies all they wanted to do was cuddle or play fetch. That and they were beautiful healthy dogs. I write entries that spin the stories in entertaining ways, but I never really regretted having them around, even though it was a happy accident. We stay in touch with all the their owners and get pictures from time to time.

      Here is a picture of one of them: http://wp.me/a38Idg-7U

      1. I bet they were smart; and cute, and adorable and snuggly! Border collies and Dobermans are both on the top 10 list of smartest dog breeds, so I bet they are very intelligent little critters.
        And that puppy is totally adorable! Reminds me of Kyuss as a puppy, except a little more collie like hehe.
        Happy Easter!
