She was in heat. The undies save the furniture, and help by acting a bit like a chastity belt, with an intact , experienced stud dog in the house. They buy you a bit of time if someone isn't as careful as they should be and they happen to be alone together for a moment without supervision.
They truly do love each other. When we brought Iris, the Whippet home as a baby, Holly thought she was a cat and was bugging her and poking her. Well, Iris let out a bark, and that was it...friends forever. Iris helps Holly with her pups, and actually lactated and nursed half of Holly's 2008 litter. It was the sweetest thing I have ever seen.
You would never be sorry. They seem to love being in a home with furry pack members, it is so awesome to have some that require little to no grooming, and they are incredible with children. You'd love them Kpoos!
Awww, they look so happy together. And Holly looks "in style" LOL with her heat panties on. I have some for mine when they come into heat, never had them before, but the poodles ARE allowed on the couch/chairs, never allowed dogs on before, so bloody spots are not preferred!
That must have been so cute to see Iris helping feed the pups. Funny how some bitches will go into lactation like that under the right stimulus without having pups of their own!
It touched my heart so much to see her in there with them, and watching her boobies getting full for them, I would just weep. It was simply the sweetest, most selfless thing I have ever seen. I will see if I can dig up the disk of photos and post an album on here. It was cute too because both Mommies would be in the whelping box together, Holly with six, Iris with four, or vice versa, and she does not look anything like a red Poodle...lol...it was just precious!! Thank heavens Holly loves her because Iris is the alpha here, and she'd have made her way in there whether Holly liked it or not!!
I have said it before, and don`t want to drive people crazy saying it, but Holly and Dugan make magic together. We had ten pups the previous year, then Lucy`s litter of six (one suffocated at two days old) and they are all hot. I posted an album of photos of Eleanor from the 2008 litter, and she is so dark, and her brother Kane is the darkest red pup I have ever seen. They are all amazing with people, and just as good with other dogs, just amazing dispositions. Lucy is going to darken like crazy. It will be so cool to watch the transition. I just love what this union has brought our way!
