We went on a hike today with all three doggies and some friends, two of whom were Trasa
& hubby & 5 month old labradoodle puppy Noulli
Our hike was essentially a long walk on a wide and winding road (where no cars were allowed at this time) up in the Blue Mountains so all the dogs ran around off leash. Noulli
spent the majority of his time chasing Thule...
And mounting Thule...
Every chance he got--which was a lot...
Every chance Trasa
got she would pull him off of Thule. But it was all in vain because he would catch up to Thule again and continue humping away. Thule is far too patient and acts as if nothing is going on at all
Well around the time we got as far as we were gonna go, Noulli
continued business as usual... But This time when he finally got pulled off of Thule for the 324th time I noticed the red rocket had launched. And it was long. And it was not returning home. He walked around with a funny gait for a bit, red rocket still off in space. But soon it started to swell a bit. And turned a bit purple. We began to laugh and worry all at once. He was clearly uncomfortable and started whining. Can you call 911 for such an issue? Poor Trasa
tried to comfort and calm down her worried little Noulli
who didn't know what to do.
Upon the suggestion of Clark, who must know about these things, I rushed to an area of crunchy snow, scooped some up and, while Trasa held Noulli, I tossed the snow at the painful area hoping to freeze it home. Seemed to work.
Of course, once it was all back to normal, we leashed up the little adolescent to keep him near. But Noulli having no idea he caused his own dilemma...continued to pull toward Thule who kept prancing by, tail wagging, teasing the poor boy!
So is what happened to Noulli normal? Rosco's red rocket occasionally makes an appearance, but nothing like this! (sorry...no pictures...what
was I thinking???)
**Noulli is a sweetheart...super friendly and adorable!
