What a wonderful dog you have!  I would be concerned about his masculinity if 
he lacked such qualities!

Subject: [ SHOWGSD-L ] Male dog problem


I have a young male who is, well - quite interesting!

We recently had a litter of puppies (Secret x Army), and our Sir (Secret X
Elmo) decided that he was the father. (He is a little young to understand
the dynamics here!)

I was not going to let him in with the puppies and mother, but Linda
thought it would be OK and that he would not eat the puppies, so she put
him in.

He started out by checking them over, then cleaning them and washing their
bottoms and cleaning up after them. When Secret would leave them to go
outside, he would curl up with the puppies and keep them safe and warm
until she returned.

They are just over 9 weeks now and going everywhere and he is their
constant companion, herding them away from what he sees as danger and
directing their wanderings. He plays tug with them, letting them win much
of the time, is teaching them how to play ball (he dribbles the ball
through the house and then throws it in a basket - NBA look out!)

It is amazing to me to see this verile, dominate male dog deal with the
puppie as though he was the second mother.

Should I be concerned about his masculinity???
