a street dog named desire or the lady is a tramp

Whaaaaat? yep. little miss maude who at 14 yrs old was too old for people to adopt from the pound but is not too old to jump the fences, run like the wind and throw absolute prima dona spaz fits, got lucky today. i was sure she was spayed (no sign of previous nursing pups, no enlarged vulva from giving birth and a senior dog without mammary enlargement pretty much equals a previous spay) until she jumped the fence, ran over to the neighbors and was caught red handed in the act of of reproductive ecstacy with the unneutered newfie across the street. i hauled her home, lecturing the entire way that saints do NOT have sex with the neighborhood newfies or anyone else for that matter. she proceeded to come home and play cutesy with all the neutered but still very interested males that ought to be well beyond that kind of interest and apparently aren't. i am pretty much willing to let them have any kind of fun they want in their very twilight years...but not that, there is absolutely no way!
i could just die, i cannot believe we have a street dog named desire hiding out here. oh well, the cat is out of the bag now maude, you are going in for an operation as quick as we can arrange it. and you can kiss your days of casual sunday afternoon sex good bye, forever...geez, you didn't even know that dog, he was a total stranger this morning.
everyone knows my first favorite saying is...old but not yet dead...but come on here, she's got to be like 80 in human years, geez maudie it is time for some decorum for gawds sake!
and speaking of acting your age....we had our first saints picnic today. i swear to god that little 8 pound, 18 year old tom, ate three times his weight in cake. he was trotting up and down the sidewalk trying to keep nicole and her cake filled hands in sight and he got more than his fair share too just by virtue of being so very old and tiny.
i tried to share some of my cake with molly and i gave her a small peice still attached to my fork. the shark attack was freaking lightning fast and she disappeared thru to door with my fork sticking out the side of her miniscule mouth, never to be seen again. (nicole found it later stashed in her bed, she was probably planning on poking out someones eye.)
ellie loved cake, she thought that was the very best thing she had ever eaten in the whole entire world. i think she liked it so much because it was thick with icing and was the sweetest thing she had ever tasted.
except for the sex thing which i am still really upset about, it was an almost perfect day. we had great friends and visitors and the animals had one of the best days in their entire lives. well...i am pretty sure maude did, cuz she sure looks happy tonight.
