I remember the letter coming home for the son, asking for permission for him to take part in sex education lessons at school. I also remember this being signed and returned. So what the bloody heck did they teach ‘em.
The terrier bitch has been on heat for a week every evening on return from school I ask “are the dogs apart?”
“Yes” comes the reply.
“…and the kitchen door is it shut so they can’t get at each other?”
At fifteen and after sex education lessons you would have thought he would understand that leaving the door open to allow sexually frustrated Chessie any access to the on heat terrier would be a no no.
I come down and (admittedly there is a stair gate to keep the dogs out of the rest of the house when they are dirty) the Chessie (who is a working gundog who can jump five bar gates! And who is a bit think, well he is a dog!) to
find the Chessie chewing on the terriers neck and hooking his paws into her side through the stair gate in an attempt to do the dirty!
I explain in concise dog language that his behaviour is not acceptable and the teenage son asks “what’s a matter?”
I am sure we learnt how dogs did it as part of our sex education lesson in fact in the 70’s we learnt about dogs, cat, cows and chicken and missed out how people did it!
What would a union of these two look like?
