How do i explain this to my 6 year old?
December 8, 2012 at 9:13 PM

Today my life took a turn for the weird...

We've got two female dogs. Tuesday & Pearl. Tuesday is actually a hermaphrodite which we've know since she was a puppy. She presents as female...she doesn't have balls or anything, her lady parts are just a little bigger than most dogs. People usually just think she's in heat when they see her.

Well, they both just went through heat cycles. Turns out...Pearl is pregnant.

Yeah...she hasn't been around any other dogs, we have a privacy fence but we stayed in the yard with her every time she went out because we were afraid she would try and escape to find a boyfriend. That only leaves one suspect.

So my "female" dog impregnated my other dog. How do we explain this to my 6yo?

    LMAO!  You could either tell her the truth, or tell her another dog accidently got in the back yard.

    Tell her that lady found herself a tramp! Lol

    I would explain it to her in simple terms

    Although Tuesday has mostly lady parts, she was also born with some male dog parts, and her and Pearl love each other very much..so on the third date! Lol

     No big deal.Dogs leap over fences, make love between fences. Your sneaky dog in heat may have crawled under the fence. Or your hermaphrite dog Tuesday is actually a "MALE " and he had a feild day in the back yard with the privacy fence. Congrats mama!!!!!! Get the nesting box ready! Be prepared to assist. Personally I think that hernarphrodite dog is more male than you give it credit for!

    No...it's super funny. When DH and i made realized what must have happened we laugh so hard we cried. They are small dogs so she might only have 1 puppy. If she does we're naming it Jesus.
