I think I need professional help. I know it sounds unbelievable that some one like me would need help. But I need my head sorting out.
Can you please help me? I Need to know whether it my mummy and daddy who need educating or whether I need to understand a bit more about how humans think.
Basically what it is daddy often says I am a good boy. But at at other times he says I am acting just like a female.
So am I male or female?
For example, he thinks I am being female as I can be very
- attention seeking
- inconsiderate of what other people need to do with their time
- fussy eater always going on fad diets.
I can understand some of those points but it is only part of my nature.
When a dog is number one in the family then he has the right to be demanding. It is only right and proper that I should get attention from others no matter what they are doing.
I am a fussy eater because I only like gourmet food and deserve the best.
And what’s more if he was being fully honest I do give him plenty of time off to do his own thing. However that is only providing he does not neglect his duties to me.
Does that make me male or female?
Mummy also says I am a male dog (and the vet agreed with her when he put me through that operation last year).
She says I must be male as
- I don’t do what I am told straight away
- I don’t put my toys away at a night
- I don’t help with the housework (vacuuming etc)
- I love cuddling up to her.
Daddy must be wrong. Being male is fun. But, maybe I need to explain some of the points mummy makes.
Okay, I admit I don’t always do what I am told straight away. But mummy should consult me more often about what I want to do as well.
I do put my toys away in the box sometimes. I only leave them out most of the time because I will want to play with them later. It might be a few days later but what harm are they doing to her? Why put toys away only to get them out again?
I do try to help her with the housework. Whenever she makes the bed I am always there to jump up and straighten the sheets with her. I even get inside the quilt cover to make it even easier for her. But she tells me to get down off the bed. I am also very willing to clean the dinner plates for her.
As for cuddling her I love her so it is only natural that I cuddle up and try to lick her face. Any male would do that, wouldn’t they?
Does that mean I am male or female? Maybe I am the modern male. Always (just like daddy) trying to be helpful and getting it wrong most of the time.
Which male traits do you think I need to work on? I want to prove to Daddy that I am not a female dog?
