Outnumbered

Noelle and I are outnumbered. We're just two girls, having to live with seven boys. It's tough, I tell you. Here's a quick summary of who we have to put up with:


Dave - Male - Adult Human - Entertains himself with violent video games, violent movies, and cleaning his multiple guns after target practice. He claims he's trying to keep his "Expert" status as a sniper in the Army. I think he just has too much testosterone.

Remi - Male - Adult Great Dane - Barks at everyone and everything. Claims he is doing his duty as a watchdog and protecting the females of the house. I think he just has too much testosterone.




Ziggy - Male - Juvenile Dog - Enjoys wrestling matches, chewing on everything in sight, and creating large messes for the females in the house to clean up. Claims he's just a guy trying to have a good time. I think he just has too much testosterone.

Bosco - Male - Juvenile Dog - Enjoys wrestling matches, and humping other dogs. Claims he's got too much testosterone. Even though he's been neutered, I agree.




Tripoli - Male - Adult Shepherd Mix - Enjoys shedding. Okay, maybe he doesn't enjoy it, but he does a lot of it. Perhaps its caused by too much testosterone.









Rudy - Male - Adult Cat - Constantly complains of feeling trapped. Wants freedom to go outside and flirt with the female cats. Definitely caused by too much testosterone.









Merlin - Male - Juvenile Cat - Eats everything in sight, much like a teenage boy. Never seems to be full. Claims he needs more canned cat food. I think he is lying.









And okay, all of these cats and dogs have been neutered, but still. They're boys, they act like boys, and Noelle and I are outnumbered. I have a right to complain about it. Especially since I have another male cat coming back tomorrow. Where are all the girl dogs and cats? How did I end up with all male fosters?

I think tonight Noelle and I are going to have to have a Girl's Night Out. We'll put on makeup, and watch a movie where nothing blows up, and put up a big sign that says "No Boys Allowed!!"

I guess THE "seat" is always up at your house, eh?

Wow...that is a lot of TESTY-osterone in your house. Most luckily, we are divided even steven in our house between girls and boys. (Although sometimes I hike my leg to pee. Does that make me a boy?)

Thanks for brightening my day. I don't comment often, but I always enjoy reading your blog posts. Good luck with the addition of yet another male--and more testosterone--in your home.

Woo for girls night! Girls rule the roost - all those boys know who is in charge!

Well, I sympathize - in our house it is 3 girls, 5 boys. Less outnumbered but still - we are outnumbered. And I don't care about neutering because boys will act like boys. It is that way at our house, and heck most of ours are cats - with dogs, I just can't imagine the "fun"!

ha when we went to adopt our dogs there were a lot more females. Hmmm maybe its an east vs west thing?

Testosterone poisoning is a terrible thing and the effects linger long after it's no longer being produced in large amounts.

As to your question about why all the boy fosters - please refer to you post for the answer.

I never realized the match-up that was going on in your house. And poor Noelle has to put up with all the tumbling boy dogs.

Hmm...A girls night out sounds like a great idea. Me and momma do that alot.

I feel your pain! I'm surrounded by 9 males every day, so it's just Sissy and I. We often go upstairs to watch Steel Magnolias or Cats vs. Dogs, give ourselves pedis (or "pawdis") and eat ice cream (or kibbble since Sissy is lactose intolerant). :)

Pibble said...

Hmmm... We girls are slightly outnumbered too, 4-3. But we're tougher, heh, heh. Testosterone or not!

Erica said...

At least you have another girl..I am the only girl surrounded by 4 boys! Guess I'll just have to leave the house to escape:)

Definitely too much testosterone in your house. I can send over half a dozen female Porties to set things straight.
