So we took our two basenjis to the lake this weekend with some friends of ours. Our dogs do really well with other dogs- especially big ones. Another couple had brought their dog, a non-neutered golden retriever who is 6 years old (only dog, good with kids and other dogs). I didn't realize he was still intact until someone mentioned it on the ride down- to which I said, "Oh, well he'll probably be all over Lexi then! I've never come across a non-neutered dog who didn't follow her around!"
Well, we get there and they told me their dog was gay. I thought they meant it in a slang way, not literally. But I was wrong. Their dog incessantly followed Miles around– literally the ENTIRE weekend. At first I thought it was just a dominance thing and they were rough-housing. But their dog would always start trying to hump and his "lipstick" would come out. And then it happened... their dog actually ejaculated all over Miles. :eek::eek::eek:I have NEVER seen anything like this. It happened a couple of times although Miles started to become more defensive after the first episode and gave him the warning gruff of "get off me". But their dog would follow him around licking his ears and also licking his butt hole as he went by. I'm sorry to be so blunt, but this is an honest story and something I've never, ever encountered. The other couple was so embarrased and so I didn't want to make a big deal out of it, but I had to give Miles a bath several times and was kind of grossed out. PS- He couldn't care less about Lexi.
Does anyone else have any experience with this? Or any ideas I could lend to the other couple about how to get him to stop this behavior? Is he too old to be neutered? I just don't want this to continue all summer. Thoughts other than just keeping them separated?
