The clothes the cats sleep in are mine, so, I really have to think how to imprint my smell on the dogs and not the other way around...
Icon I had to log back in here to tell you that I may have spoken too soon in my last post
I'm currently looking after a friend's pup while she is out of town, and it's one of those tiny designer dogs. This dog is very cute (read: dumb as a rock with limited social skills) but has managed to cause more issues in the household in a week than any of the other nine full-sized dogs (read: intelligent with reasonable behavior) I've had in and out over the years.
The visiting dog is about the same size as my cat and she HATES him with a rabid burning fury. She's never so much as blinked an eye at the bigger dogs, but grows visibly disturbed the moment tiny designer dog enters a room. BEfore this week, I think I've seen my cat hiss once in 5 years of having her. Now her hissing is the soundtrack to my life.
She's also pooed on my dog's bed twice this week (in protest?).
I'm keeping them separated.
My normal-sized dog also doesn't know what to make of her pint-sized new friend. She doesn't seem to mind having her genitals licked for hours, but this afternoon when the lil one took to following her around humping her leg at every opportunity, I thought I saw a hint of rage in my otherwise gentle companion's eyes. She kept gazing up at me sorrowfully as lil bit pumped madly away at her hind leg, as if pleading for me to make it stop. Alas, there's nothing I can do, because if I don't leave the little one free for a good segment of every day, she will keep us up all night with her oddly infant-like gurgling.
I don't know man. I'm sticking to full-sized dogs from now on. These hybrid dog-cat-rat mixes are deranged.
