Poor Custard...

Much as he has worn our patience very thin, we can't help feeling sorry for him.

I mentioned a while back that we were about to get Frou Frou "done" when she suddenly came into season.

The first week or so was OK - she left a little trail of blood behind her from time to time, but Custard didn't take any notice.

Then he started to notice her, and became a sex-starved maniac.  He followed her everywhere, whining, dribbling and panting trying to win her affections - not that it is physically possible for her to give him what he wants... 

Remember the size difference between these two - labrador, small terrier...

We try to keep him calm and reasonably seperate from her but when we have tried total segregation SHE has wanted to be with HIM!  So we were back to him chasing her around until he passed out with exhaustion.

So we have had around a week of this now, and it is finally fading, thank God.

But it is not all bad - he had gained a bit of weight over the winter, but he lost it chasing Frou Frou.  I guess it just proves that there is nothing like chasing a woman to keep you slim.

Nice story. Good thing life will be back to normal in your household soon. They can return to being pals again.

Poor Custard, is right! He must be frustrated beyond belief. Glad to hear that his torture will soon come to an end.
