This ISN'T the Playboy Mansion

We've been busy lately; mostly at work but some of it has involved vet visits too.  Sam has gone to the vet twice in the last week about "man troubles."  He's an older guy and these sorts of troubles are to be expected.  Don't worry though, everything is - or will be - ok.  There will be a post on all this next week.

Last night we drove up to Gainesville, VA, to see Dr. Dove.  Dr. Dove is a great repro vet and also happens to co-own Hickory, the Deerhound who won Westminster.  Oh, and Dr. Dove is pretty easy on the eyes too.  It's too bad I'm usually in his office for him to give Sam a hand job.  But I digress....

Last night's appointment was a second opinion on Sam's current "man troubles."  We discussed Sam's virility - at length - with the conversation finally coming to, "When did he sire his last litter?"  Sam's last litter was the New Year's Day litter that produced Princess Pretty Pants (Georgia) as well as Jon Farleigh.  That was a little over a year ago, when Sam was 11 1/2 years old.  Dr. Dove's response?

"Wow!  That sort of makes him the Hugh Hefner of the dog world!"

So now I have this indelible mental image of Sam wearing satin pajamas, reclining on a circular bed surrounded by young, nubile bitches in season.  I don't think I'll explain to Sam who Hef is.


  1. Jesus, you just made me snort so loud I scared the dog. I think it was the hand job part.

    Our vet is who I call "Dr. Panty Dropper" - devastatingly handsome with blindingly white teeth, every time he comes out in the waiting room all the women start to giggle and are rendered speechless. Absolutely pathetic.

  2. Dr. Dove should change his name to Dr. Luv. :) Oh, Sam, life is hard (no, not that!).
    On another note, I did read on today that Hef's getting married again soon. Guess Sam could, too, eh?

  3. If Sam's like Hugh Hefner, then I'd say he has lived a very good life! Lucky Sam!

  4. Yep I can see Sam now kicked back on a velvet sofa with a pipe and red silk robe on! I wish I could Photoshop a photo now:-))

  5. HAHAHAHAHA!!! I love it! I think it was the hand job part that got me too. The dogs looked at me like I was crazy when I laughed that loud. Now BB and Lily are mouth wrestling and BB is moaning. If only he could aspire to be the next Hefner LOL!!
