My dog is cheating on me. He begs to go out then only stands in the drive and looks longingly at the neighbor’s house. I do believe, if I allowed it, he’d howl a serenade under the lady’s window. A few times, she’s stopped to visit and pet him. You’d think think she’d invited him into her life. Puffing out his chest, he peed impressively, then kicked up a huge cloud of dust. to show what a mighty fellow he is. In all honesty, his bladder capacity is astounding since he’s a mastiff, but I don’t think it makes her want him more., nor does his habit of making a beeline to sniff her nether portions.
Worse yet, if he gets more than twenty feet ahead of me, he goes stone deaf. Buzzy, my other dog, suffers the same malady. Though we have a two-acre yard with plenty of poop room, they are both desperate to leave surprises for the neighbors. Early on, I made sure they knew the perimeter of our yard. Since then, they’ve both try not to go inside its boundaries. If they got their heart’s desire, we’d be surrounded by a poop fence on all four sides ten feet just outside our property lines. Buzzy’s deposits are offensive enough, but Croc’s leavings are mountainous.and would soon obscure the view if left to lie. We’d be run out of the neighborhood if they got their wish.
