Blaze and Chance courting
There's been a bit of love happening in our house the last couple of days. Blaze's heat is progressing along and she is almost ovulating, which means right now she is still fending Chance off, but in another day or two she will be ready. We are not breeding her and even though Chance is fixed we will be seperating them when the time comes.
They run around like a couple of teenagers waiting for Mom and Dad to leave the room. Chance follows Blaze everywhere she goes, panting with excitement. He pulls all the love moves, bowing down, dancing around her, getting her going and then just when he thinks he's sealed the deal, she flips around and attacks. Blaze will then proceed to the door like a teenager trying to sneak out with her boyfriend. If only she could open the door! There she pleads with me that if I will just open the door, she promises to be a good girl. They just want to go out and play. Really.
So I let them out and go out with them. They both sit at my feet and tell me "We don't need a chaperone, MOM!! You ruin everything!!" You can hear them praying for me to go back in the house. Insisting they won't do ANYTHING. Against their pleas we all head back in the house and the process starts over again.
If you have never witness the love of two dogs, it really is cute and very comical. I caught some on video, but my husband thought it was a little too X-rated for the blog, so I'll just have to give you the edited screenplay version. There really is something so sweet and loving about their courting as I remember very well with Silver and Brut. There is a pure and natural love when dogs breed and the real beauty of watching this interaction is knowing that all dogs are created with this same love.
