The day has come for Monti´s chemical castration. In this picture it´s like he´s saying you are going to do WHAT? poor boy, I did not want it to come to this but we need to try. I really hope he gets better and can relax more, there are mostly females in our street and he goes crazy every time some of them are in heat. The vet said it will be about six weeks before we might see some changes but it can come sooner. It will be over in seconds. Wish us luck.
My Monti tattoo was taken at skindiggers tattoo lounge in Rethymno Crete by this sweet adorable tattoo artist named Irini. I decided a long time ago that my very first dog was going on my skin and now I had the chance. I sat in the chair for a little over an hour and it didn’t hurt as much as I remembered. But it was not pleasant either. So now I have Montis name on me forever, I am really happy with it and it was the best tattoo session I have ever had!. All it needs to do now is heal so I can see the final result.
My trip has been relaxing and great, I ate lots of good food and saw many dogs there to, everything from basset hounds to mastiffs. The dog culture there is different, the owners don´t have leach on them, they walk alone in the street sometimes to. But I think the dogs are used to it and they never went into the street. I saw dogs sleeping on the sidewalk besides the café´s and I think the owners was inside. The only bad thing about this is for those who is afraid of dogs, every dog was so tired from the heat so they didnt move.
I am very satisfied with the trip but coming home and seeing my boys is always good. My tattoo is also a memory for life, I will always remember Rethymno and Crete because of it.
This picture is from when Monti was six months, at least very close. I can´t believe that he is almost two years old. Feels like yesterday he´d pee on the floor and we where potty training him.
Well today I took a nice long walk with my darling because tomorrow I go to the airport, I am heading to Greece and will be leaving my boyfriend and Monti for a week. I am looking forward to seeing something new but I will still miss my boys. When I get home Monti will also get his chemical castration, I hope he can be a more happy dog because of it. But we will see how it goes.
Sometimes it´s hard having a male dog, he is very dominant and hate other male dogs, we are not trying out chemical castration because of this but hyper sexuality (just to get it out there). I know castration don´t necessarily do anything for dominant behavior. We are never going to use him in breeding because of his mix and we don´t know what kind of illnesses he might be exposed to. Me personally think Monti would have beautiful kids, super hyper bouncing of the walls kids but beautiful. Everything is in the future and I will not worry about things now. We can always train him to get along with other male dogs.
Someone asked me once if I would have picked another dog If I had known how he would turn out. The answer is no! Monti has a strong personality and is very demanding but he also gives me so much love and seeing his happy face everyday just waiting to be with me is priceless. I would never give up on him because he is my best friend!
I am shure Monti is sick of having lice right now but there has been some progress. He does not itch as much as he used to and I have not seen any of them in his fur. My other good news is that I am getting a new computer so I don’t have to blog from the cellphone anymore. That will be sweet to have a place to put all my Monti pictures :). That way the blog will be better and I can write a lot more.
Have a great week!
