Yep, he's teaching my girls about the nature of boys.
Seems there's a dog in heat in the village. He has taken to abandoning us mid-walk to go and hang out with this oh so willing, but distressingly tall girl.
I had to go back out with the man to catch him this morning, cause he was so delightfully engaged with some of the happier aspects of a doggy's life. She followed us all the way home, tempting him, well offering him many, ah, opportunities. It's an interesting way to walk a dog, that.
Since we have got him home, he has panted, drooled and spent the last 45 minutes smelling himself over and lasciviously licking at whatever part of his body he can still smell her on. Feet, back, knees, forelegs....
A most satisfying morning, t'would seem.
Now all he needs is a nap.
