At least every other day (or so it seems), I read someone’s story about their Golden Retriever carrying a pair of undies into the living room in front of company.
Honey also has the attraction to walking around with a pair of scanties in her mouth. We’re just lucky she hasn’t yet done it when someone is over.
But it got me thinking about the many ways your dog can embarrass you. And that took me back to Agatha and Christie, my “starter dogs.” They taught me everything I needed to know about humiliation, frustration, and embarrassment.
They would prance into the living room and set up under the crystal chandelier where Agatha would hump Christie for a good 20 or 30 seconds. Then she’d stop and Christie would hump Agatha.
This continued on for some minutes until both dogs were tired and our guests’ mouths were full of flies caught while gaping at the spectacle.
I can hardly blame my guests for their reactions. It’s not every dinner party that ends with incestuous, girl-on-girl action.
Have you ever been embarrassed by your dog? Do tell.
