A couple of days ago I was playing fetch in the park and having so much fun I didn’t even have time to look at the other dogs around me. When the human stopped throwing the ball I noticed there was a cute looking Staffie girl circling around me. I could have sworn she winked, and she desperately tried to invite me for a game of chase. I was so into my game though, that I only had eyes for the tennis ball.
‘Sorry he is a bit boring he just wants to play with the ball,’ my human said to the Staffie’s human.
‘That’s alright, he probably knows she’s only after his danglies anyway,’ she replied.
‘Sorry?’ My human wasn’t sure she could trust her ears.
‘The only time she wants to play with dogs is if they’re intact. Otherwise she just ignores them.’ They moved on and I was left with a lot of questions.
Then, yesterday I took my humans for a lovely stroll along the river. The weather was great and lots of humans were out walking with their kids and dogs. I was sniffing around and making news friends like I always do when suddenly one of the girls I was chatting with turned around bit me really hard across my neck. I squeaked like I got my tail stuck in a door and the humans hurried to check me over. The dog’s human turned up.
‘Sorry she’s on heat, and I didn’t think he had noticed.’ My humans looked dumbstruck.
I felt completely clueless and did not know what was going on or what I was supposed to have noticed. All I did was sniff and then all of a sudden I had sharp teeth around my neck. Honestly, I heard or saw nothing that could explain why she grabbed me like that.
We walked on and my humans said something about not wanting a basket of puppies on our door step, and maybe it was time they called the vet. Totally random. Could someone please explain what is going on?
