Our puppy is coming of age. He’s been doing the usual humping of toys, but a couple of days ago after going at it with one of his toys that he normally uses, he just stood there in standing position literally not moving for what felt like a whole minute or more. Seemed weird but he’s a dog and sometimes he’s weird.
He eventually turned around towards us with this look of shock on his face and he had a boner that was like 6 inches and a frightening colour I can’t describe (for reference he’s 8kg and his leg is only like 8 inches long). I was wondering if there was some deformity or some medical condition that needed emergency medical attention. He let out a horrific screech when he moved (might have touched the ground or something), the sound was like he was in pain, the most horrible sound, I can still hear in my mind now.
Luckily my wife seemed to have heard about this and said we need to calm him down, and eventually after calming him down it began to deflate and he let out another screech, but soon deflated.
Can someone who knows about this tell me
What on earth happened (this wasn’t his ordinary boner which comes out like a centimetre or two)
What to do if it happens again
How often this happens?
One more question – someone told me that we shouldn’t have given him a hump toy to relieve himself, can anyone weigh in on this? My thought as that a male (person) needs to be relieved, so wouldn’t a dog need to also?
