Subject: BS: Seamus and the Family Jewels

Date: 03 Nov 05 - 11:32 PM

Capt. Morse and I disagree about this one. Perhaps some here can shed light on the subject.

Today, Seamus either disgraced himself or earned a medal depending on your point of view. We were at the dog park when a rather large (male) Great White Pyrenee (sp?) caught his eye. And as boy dogs must do, Seamus proceeded to play Alpha Male by mounting the other dog and humping him. Although the other dog outweighed our Golden Boy by a good 20#, he chose to lie on his back and get humped. Repeatedly.

Seamus, though neutered, developed a rather long, hard, red erection- all estimates point to 7+". People stopped to stare in wonder. One woman walked into the park with her prissy little fuzz ball and snickered to her husband "Well we know what's on his mind!".

So far so good. But the Seamus started to walk around with this third leg dangling. He walked bowlegged. He hopped on three legs. And finally he sat down - a painful mistake which led to a long wailing screech of pain.

I ran to him and tried to get him on his feet. Another woman, insisting his leg was hurt, started examining his hind leg. I insisted that his leg was not the problem. So ... with some gentle massage, a leg rub and persistence, his "member" resumed its normal size and position and all was well.

I of course lost a year of my life trying to figure out how I was going to get 90 pounds of howling in pain Lab into my car and out at the vet's office. And then, how to explain what happened.

So...has anyone else witnessed a similar canine experience (no - I am not interested in your dilemma after exceeding the recommended Viagra dosage)? Kendall says this is common. But he comes from Machias where all sorts of strange things are common. I have never seen anything like this before and will do all in my power to prevent future occurrences.

Inquiring minds want to know.

Funny, 'gin!

I had no idea that could/would happen to a 'fixed' critter. Years ago my brother's family had a neutered chihuahua that fell in love with my male dog but I don't remember anything like that happening. I gather it would have been pretty noticeable!

I suppose you can guard against any recurrence by not letting it go on that long? Surely it didn't happen immediately?

If all else fails, take along a cloth for a sling. *G*

Poor dogs are so vulnerable. I remember one year when there was a lot of snow on the ground and a neighbor's recent mother Basset Hound went outside for a stroll. Her pink, full dugs dragged along in the snow. shudder

I assume the common occurrence you are referring to was the length of time it took his swollen member to subside....or was it the homoerotic or perhaps more appropriately, the dogerotic as opposed to bitcherotic behavior he engaged in despite, his lack of nuts?

In either case, I think Kendall may be correct. Our neutered wee Old Wort, a very fine wire haired dachshund cross, spent a fair amount of his "declining" years in the company of our young unspayed Westie bitch in what seemed to be state of pariaprisum.

I think what happens is that the constant exposure to the air, in a lengthy heat of passion and play, with no convenient knothole for relief, dries out his dick a bit and makes it difficult for his sheath to slip back over it. With more experience he may learn to lick it back into shape.

Anyways, I don't think it is anything to be too concerned about. It didn't seem to do Old Wort any damage and he did eventually managed to get the full act down pat. While I was surprised that despite his lack of balls, he could manage this, our vet advised me that while it was not too common, it did occur, but rest assured, despite the full act taking place, he was shooting blanks.

Old Wort also had a friend, Fred, another small hairy neutered dog that he took a shine to as well. The two of them spent many hours over the years in the behavior you have described above. Oddly enough neither of them engaged in such behavior with other dogs.

So I believe the short answer to your question may be that some dogs are just hornier than others and in the heat of play get carried away, forget their gender and their balls or lack thereof.

I really, really thought this was about Mr. Kennedy.

Neutering, if done when the animal (whether men or dogs) is mature, does NOT prevent an erection. It only prevents the production of spermatazoa. In some cases it will not prevent an erection if the animal neutered was NOT mature. Testosterone is not only produced in the crouch, but can and is produced in other glands, notably the adrenals. Granted, the amounts are usually very, very small when compared to The Big Fountain, but if The Source is removed the secondary sources can produce enough to permit sexual activity.

This is not my opinion, but medical fact.

This leads to two things:

1. Castrating sexual predators will not necessarily work. The Catholic Church used to oppose castration of sexual offenders on this very ground -- it would permit them to engage in the activity while only removing the ability to procreate.

2. Harem guards who had only had "a fall on a cutlass" were quite popular with the ladies of the harem. Other guards, who had had it ALL trimmed away, were popular with the sultan or whoever.

Aren't you glad you asked?

(And if you want my sources for this, I suggest you research it yourself. Or go down to the public library and ask the Reference Librarians. Tell them a Library Director sent you.)

This is what happens when we leave the boy with his Auntie Mary! I had suspicions that the boy was gay but this just confirms it.

Luckily both Kendall and I are of the liberal persuasion and as long as he doesn't frighten the horses he can do as he pleases. Mind you, in this instance, it sounds as if he might do that.

Actually Liz, despite Mr Barker's observations to the contrary, Old Wort never seemed to have any problem with stairs what so ever. Perhaps along with or because of his ability never to flag when the situation arose, he developed muscles that tucked it closer to his body while going up. I never looked closely to see.

However, his method of descent was also the stuff of local legend. When going down, he would tuck his hind feet up under his body and achieving a certain momentum and balance, used only his front feet to go down stairs. No mean achievement given his anatomical proportions.

Here is a picure of Old Wort and his amazing bone

A cloth soaked in ice cold water does the trick on our little mutt who is fond of one particular pillow in the rec room. Sometimes he gets all dried out and engorged and it just won't slip back in.

You could suggest we throw the pillow out, but now at least where he's practicing his dance moves and can avoid nasty surprises.

All the while I was trying to figure out how to lift him in to the car without hurting him further, what on earth to tell the vet and how to explain a broken penis to Kendall. He may act nonchalant about it now but he wasn't there.

The sequence of events described is not at all uncommon.

The first point to be realized is that "mounting," particularly for male-on-male, is a dominance action that has little to do with sex. Neutered males do it for this reason about as frequently as "fully equipped" ones. It's also not uncommon for females to "simulate mounting" as a display of dominance over other females and/or males. (In females it may be a bit more common with females who have been altered.)

In "dominance mounting displays" a male dog seldom has an erection, although a sustained display may result in one. In such cases, the erection is mostly "accidental." There generally is no attempt at penetration.

Dogs share a characteristic "sex behaviour" with a number of other critters, in that erection is not required for insertion. The penis usually has an enlargement fairly close to the base that after erection prevents, or at least inhibits, separation until the erection subsides. In the normal mating, the erection subsides only after ejaculation.

When a male dog has an erection, the bulge that would provide a "secure mating" often cannot be withdrawn into the sheath until the erection subsides. Small dogs, especially, appear oblivious to it and may just run around with it all hanging out. Indications are that this condition can range from annoying for most to rather painful for some dogs. It is, however, transient, and will subside without assistance in nearly all cases.

There is little one can do to hasten the process of resolving the male's erection, and this is the only thing that is going to relieve his distress. (There obviously are some extremely crude things that could be suggested, but none that most would want to try.) The ice-pack suggested in a previous post might help if the male is calm enough to accept such treatment.

With a "coupled" couple in normal mating, most suggestions will accomplish little beyond further agitating a struggling pair of animals, and things like "throwing a bucket of cold water on them" are unlikely to hasten a normal separation. Such actions may cause the animals to struggle, and particularly in the case of a small female with a larger male can result in injury to the female when the engorged lumpy penis is forcibly withdrawn. The normal recommendation is to leave them alone until they're done, and get the female a "morning after" treatment at the vet's if desired.

For the male dog with a "locked up sheath" the best that normally can be done is to keep him as calm as possible until nature takes its course. A mental distraction that takes his mind off his problem may perhaps help, so petting and talking to him can be tried, but physical activity on his part probably won't help a lot.

I've known of a couple of old farm dogs subject to the condition who'd taught themselves to relieve themselves by masturbation - humping against their own crossed forelegs. They seemed to obtain some more rapid resolution for their problem; but I have no idea how one would teach a dog to do this. They both were at the same farmstead, so perhaps I should have asked the farmer...

Once upon a time, a long time ago, when some kid got bored hanging out around the farm - IF it was too dark to work at something, someone might hand the kid a copy of "The Complete Manual of Animal Husbandry for Midwestern Farmers" ed. 1898 or so, - or something like that - and if the light from the little windows in the coaloil stove was sufficient, a kid might learn a lot of things more modern education omits.

It can be a real trick to work much of it into a conversation.

So should Jack be asking for a DNA test on these puppies that Jolene says are his?

Thanks John, I was hoping this exercise in hysteria would die out so I wouldn't have to explain the facts of life to the "Maiden Lady" in question. Well done sir.

Thank you John. Most of us are "not in Kansas anymore." Poor Seamus has been collected IN MY ABSENCE and moved to his new home in Scarborough. We will see..............

I had a neutered male silver tabby. He was snoozing on the bed when Musetta, my tortie with attitude, hopped up and informed him that she ws in heat. Mr. Tabby did his darndest to father her kittens. In fact, he tried several times, always on my bed. Well it's nice to know somebody was having a good time there.

It would seem that most of us don't come in close contact with the every day reality of life with animals in their natural state as we did on the farm or a hundred years ago on a city street.

We're surrounded by spayed and neutered animals and consequently spared a large piece of reality in the doggie world and are somewhat surprised when a little of their true "nature" pokes through. LOL

And to change the subject very slightly, this may probably be part of the reason or perhaps because I linked from this thread to my pic of Old Wort at the Flickr photo website, that Flickr has notified me, that perhaps I should flag the photo of Wort and Bone with a "may offend" tag. LOL

Old Wort, on the other hand, true to his nature regarding such concerns, would have just lifted his leg, thinking "piss on it", then moved on wagging his tail. Good idea, Old Dog Wort..

Sins ... I've heard that most animals take on the personality and traits of their owners. So ... perhaps you should go to the source ... doggone it anyway! CHEERS, Bob(deckman)Nelson

I did. Kendall tells me I am obsessed with Seamus' sex life and need a hobby. That isn't exactly what he said but given his threat to keep me from the darling dog, I will now drop the subject entirely. Besides, it is only a matter of time before Seamus comes up with something equally amusing.

Oh my God.

I'm not even gonna tell you how I FOUND this thread, but I did. And I sure did need a few good laughs tonight ; )

How is the old boym anyway?

Here's my $.02: my neutered golden Moose (laugh if you must) was born gay. I'm convinced of it. And though he's never enjoyed the real thing, he's usually up for a good dry hump with his best friend the Airedale who is twice his size. Ahem. Only Moose tries to climb onto poor Buck's head. And Buck gets Moose's whole back haunch in his powerful jaws, flips him over his shoulder, then they both shake it off, have a good chuckle, and start over again.

Dani - were you enquiring about Seamus or Kendall?

Both are well and have adjusted to the new house without too many problems.

We had a few people in for a celebratory meal tonight to mark the fact that we closed on this house today so now it's really ours! Our realtor and her lawyer husband came along with their female bull mastiff, Asher. Seamus made friends with her but it looks like it will be platonic. I do reckon the dog is gay!

He's a lovely dog Bob. I am not a 'dog person' but this hound has a real personality and it would be nigh on impossible to live in the same house and not love him.

He's very mischievous and will make a dive into any open purses that might be around, but only if the owner is close by - he likes to play. I think I've just about cured him of making off with my yarn when I'm crocheting and not giving him the attention he reckons he deserves.

On dogs taking after their owners - he is a charming character with a big streak of mischief - very much like the Cap'n.

If ever get another dog, I'm gonna call him Kendall, and start a few threads here with his name in the title. So there!

Did you ever hear of a dog named "Timex".

He could take a ticking and keep on licking.

Which brings up the question: How did the dog acquire or deserve his name? *G*
