How do i explain this to my 6 year old?

Posted by   + Show Post

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?

Oh sure, dogs only get pregnant when one person owns the male and the female...

Quoting Whaaaaaa....O.o:

Quoting LilyofPhilly:

IDK, how do you explain owning two unaltered dogs when thousands of dogs are put down every year because they're aren't enough homes for them?

Wow......judgemental much?

She thought they were both female, and she made sure other dogs weren't getting near them. My German shepherd isn't fixed. But he isn't around female dogs, so what is the point? Plus he is too old to get it up anyway

Well the most obvious way is to explain you were wrong and your other dog is actually a boy.
