Lion has a badly bruised butt. I didn’t do it. Honest! He got it when he fell the other day.
I started to swat him last night. I didn’t see the bruise until he started yelping more than usual. Since I need to avoid that spot, I stopped everything. I think it’ll be a while before it’s safe to spank him again. Maybe I’ll have to come up with another idea to take the place of the punishment he’s due.
There was a comment on one of my recent posts suggesting the wheelbarrow position for spanking. Neither Lion nor I knew what that was. I Googled it and it looks like it would be uncomfortable for both of us. We are by no means in shape. And I’m not sure it would give me the correct angle to hit where I want to hit Lion. If I wanted to hit up near his back, it would be fine. I’m aiming for his sit spot. I’ll look at the pictures again when I’m home and not trying to hide my phone from others’ view. I may be missing something.
We had another misfire in the edging department last night. The weenie is willing…until it isn’t. We were at it for about a half hour before he fizzled out. These slumps happen from time to time and, while I don’t put any major importance on them, I know Lion is concerned. What if he never gets his mojo back? He will. A few days after he’s convinced himself he’s broken, everything is fine again. In the meantime, we keep trying.
