After a walk and we come back in the house, Pooh sits by the door and waits patiently while I take off my coat and shoes and grab the towel for wiping his feet. As soon as he gives me a paw (which he now does without asking in this scenario) I notice a little something poking out. Now, he's been fixed for as long as he can remember, and as soon as we finish it goes away, but it's kinda funny. A bit embarassaing because now, when anyone asks him for a paw, he gladly gives the paw, but you also get an unsightly scene of something else.
Anyone else have this happen? Is it normal? I usually laugh and tell him to put it away...

|Farley isn't fixed but he's still young so I don't think he's congnizant of it yet enough to know what to do with it. Although I caught him humping one of his toys the other day. I guess you just distract him with something else to do. I dunno.
I've always had spayed dogs who haven't done much humping. We're going to try to keep the F-man whole. We will put him out to stud if he shows well and continues to be healthy. We'll see.
|Funny thing is, no humping.....it just pops out to say "Hello".|
|That is quite common among male.... dogs.....
I don't think it is anything to worry about.... although, you may want to make sure that area is trimmed if he ends up with long hair like an oes, because if it is "popping" out on a regular basis, there is a greater risk of hair getting stuck to it, and caught, which is probably painful, and causes infections.

Oh, the joy of having a male dog! Something I don't miss - explaining to a young child what the pink thing sticking out of the dog is!
I wouldn't be too concerned Josh. I think it is normal - even when neutered. It's just an "excitement" kind of thing (it can be more apparant depending on how they are sitting).
|I think it's hilarious that the ones with all the answers here so far are the women.
Some dogs when they sit upright the pressures involved in that position force the emergence of the pink. When they go to shake, that can be an extremely upright position.
So far, the dog we had with the least amount of show and tell had the most infections in the sheath, but that's limited experience.
|Kristen it hasn't even been a month since we have had to explain the "pink thing".
My parents were over the last time when "Jack JR." popped out and the comments made were less than "G" rated....
It must be a boy though. Joey was 3 when Ashlan was playing soccer. I was video taping and not paying attention to Joey who I thought was sitting down beside me playing with his trucks. All of a sudden another soccer mom says to me, "Joey is pulling his pants down" I look down and he starts peeing on the field. The only plus side was the players were on at the opposite side of the field. We have many stories like this that we get to share with his girlfriends.
Boys will be boys.

|Heh. I can imagine the comment "But mommy, Jack does it!"|
