This is Girnigoe, isn't she soooo adorable (don't answer till you read the entire post). She weighs a whopping 2.5 pounds. She is my baby, always in my lap, follows me everywhere, and frankly, I like her more than my kids most of the time (Okay, I LOVE my kids, but if you have them yourself, you know what I mean).
Being as small as she is, I have gone back and forth about breeding her. I would have to find a male that is smaller than her, not an easy feat in itself. That being said, I have not had her spayed and she has now had two heat cycles.
I have made an interesting observation with this precious wonderful little baby:
SHE SO HORNY!
OMG...this dog has many "special friends", most of which are beany babies. I have never seen a female dog hump so many things! I will say that her activity has let up substantially, but with that has come a new problem.
As she lay on my lap one evening, she did that inherent dog-thing, by rolling into a ball, to be able to lick herself...just like a boy dog would (hell, just like MOST men would if they could). Then the weird convulsions started. Her leg that was behind her ear was floppin, she even made a few grunting noises, and was rocking back and forth.
Ok, at first I thought, hmmm, must call vet...urinary tract infection or some such thing. But as this behavior has continued, I have realized (gasp) that my dog is getting into the whole licking thing, and I mean REALLY getting into it.
I know that those of you who know me, must be thinking it's all a figment of my gutter-brain, but if you could see this dog go to freakin town, you'd most certainly be appalled, but also would whole-heartedly agree that either she needs a lil boy doggie, or maybe some "boom chicka wow wow" music.
