The Birds and the Bees. Or in Our House: The Dogs and the Dogs.
I have a two-year-old unneutered male hunting dog named Mac. He's got a lot of puppy left in him. I also have an ancient neutered male house dog named Caesar. He's six months beyond the average life expectancy for his breed. I L-O-V-E love Caesar. I tolerate Mac. The other day Mac was clearly taking his sexual frustrations out on Caesar in plain view of my two-year-old daughter. Unfortunately this is not an unusual sight in our house. In fact, I've hear my daughter say "Mac, quit humping Caesar" more times than I care to admit. The other day, however, she got a little more descriptive and thoughtfully said, "Momma, Mac is itching his privates on Caesar. He REALLY itchy!" Well I certainly couldn't disagree with that.
