I think Gus is missing out.


Discussion between Ashton and I as Gus bonks his ‘muff pup’ toy. I’m starting to think Ashton is humanising our dogs too much and treating them as kids/humans.

Ashton: Awww, Good boy Gus

Me: I don’t think you should be encouraging that sort of behaviour…

Ash: Aww, but he just doesn’t know what’s happening too him. I think he’s missing out on knowing what it’s really like.

Me: huh what?

Ash: I think he should really experience it.

Me; Umm no. Have you ever seen him try and hump another dog in the park? He wouldn’t know what to do with one.

Ash: No, but that’s only because he’s not had enough time. I’m sure he would know what to do.

Me: ahh yeah no. And how would we even go about this. “Hey, you’ve got a female dog, my dog’s desexed but we want to borrow her so he can hump her to ‘experience’ life”

Ash: You just don’t understand what it’s like being a male.

Me: No, I’m just thinking realistically. And what would Ludo think? As I kid I had two male guinea pigs that we bred with a friends two female guinea pigs. After they were done they two boys wouldn’t go back in the same cage again.. They would fight and bite each others butts and not let go- forming a guinea pig bracelet.

Ash; What?! Guinea pig bracelet. How is that relevant.

Me: Entirely relevant. How do you know Ludo and Gus would get along after he’s been with another bitch?

Ash: They would. I dunno. I just feel back for him (gus).

Me: WE’RE NOT GETTING HIM A BITCH PROSTITUTE! Maybe you should just ‘help him out’ 🙂

Ash: ugh.. no!

Me: This conversation is now being put on the blog..


About gusandludo

Ludo and Gus were born on the 12th April 2011. They are both King Charles Cavalier Spaniels. Ludo is Ruby coloured and Gus is Blenheim. A little about Ludo Ludo is the 'adventurer'. Very inquisitive, active and cheeky. Very happy to steal whatever Gus is eating if he can. Cutest trait: If you say "Ludo ludo ludo" he'll cock his head one way and the other. A little about Gus Gus is a lover and a fighter. He'll come up and fall asleep in your arms, give you cuddles and give Ludo a run for his money- running over and jumping on him. This is the story about how we've managed to re-arrange our lives to include these two beautiful boys.
