All Those Bitches [16]

Meet the Breeds

This weekend is over, the National Obedience Invitational has come to an end and it is time for us to pack up and head home. On every level, our Obedience performance was a disappointment. He didn’t perform like a dog who had racked up 128 OTCH points.

One of our biggest upsets on the first day came from a distraction that seemed to be amplified this weekend. Girls. There were cute bitches all over the place, and Rugby couldn’t get enough of them. Visiting at inappropriate times even, and sporting his “stupid boy face, ” panting, shaking, practically cross eyed. This is a side of him I rarely get to see. It is a side of him that has not before interfered with his ability to work.

There are three possible fixes to this problem. The first involves keeping Rugby forever detained in the house, where no girls can enter. The second will involve a micro-prong collar, lots of girls, and lots of heeling. The third and last possible fix involves an appointment with the veterinarian, and a scalpel.

The first option is clearly unreasonable and the second option might be a bit stressful for the both of us. At four years of age, there is no longer any benefit to Rugby keeping his testicles. I think it is time for them to go. Especially after this weekend.

If it helps, great. If it doesn’t, that is fine too. I can get his teeth cleaned at the same time!

At the end of the day, Rugby is my pet first, obedience dog second. Everyone has off-days, and sometimes those off-days happen in Orlando at the National Obedience Invitational. Dogs are good at keeping you humble, that is for sure! Back to work we go!
