I cannot quite believe what I have just experienced.
I mentioned in a comment on my previous post that Sammy had been trying to mount Megan this afternoon. I'm not terribly knowledgable about dogs' sexual habits, so I put Sammy down in the garden, and left Megan on the balcony.
But I decided to search my favourite dog forum this evening to find out a little more. I thought it unusual that Sammy was doing this so soon after his op.
I was having a conversation with someone about doggy sex after neutering and spaying and established that it was quite normal for them to continue to perform the act, but of course there would be no puppies as a result. This person mentioned how she once came across a very embarrassed woman in the park with her two terriers, both neutered, who were firmly locked together, and all she could do was to stand and wait until they had finished. Because apparently you can't "untie" them...you just have to wait until nature takes it's course.
"Oh" I asked "how long does that take then?" While I was waiting for a reply, I glanced out of the window, to see Sammy on the balcony (Mr A must have left the balcony gate open) and he had mounted Megan. I rushed outside to find them absolutely firmly "tied" together. I tried gently to move Sammy away, but all I succeeded in doing was to move him so that they ended up back to back...but still firmly fixed.
Mr A arrived home at this point and he phoned Mehmet to check that there would be no damage to either of them because of this. Mehmet said there wouldn't but he also laughed because he has never known two dogs to "get together" 24 hours after their ops! It just proves they are pretty much recovered I would think! "Just wait it out, they'll be fine" said Mehmet.
After 15 minutes, the deed was done. They separated, and drank some water.
I half expected them to sit down and smoke a cigarette together!
