Male scottie, or just Dui?
It has been YEARS since we've had a male scottie.
He is so different to the girls, that he puzzles us sometimes.
We understand the leg lifting.
Dui has his own version of Tall Poppy Syndrome,
what rises above the rest must be wee'd on.
Dui races from side to side to lift his leg on everything.
We say 'lift his leg' because after about the third
go, he's empty, so it's just a leg lift.
However, he also lifts his leg against a tree, to poo!
He cannot jump.
Whenever he wants to lifted up, he gives a
shrill cry, and then lays down to await assistance.
He barks at anything,
must be held tightly when meeting another dog on a walk,
lunges at them screaming in anger.
He has bitten three (very understanding) people,
ripping the trousers of two.
He loves chasing anything on wheels.
Well, racing. The times he has chased rattling
trucks, he races to the side.
He has to be watched every minute when out of the yard.
In the mornings, he is snuggly. He won't get up until he has been cuddled and properly worshipped.
When offered a treat or food, he often takes it with a
'if this is all there is, I'll have it' attitude.
We think he's like those young men who
are arrested for anti-social acts, whose
parents and friends say
'But he's a loving boy and wonderful son.'
He is a puzzle.
