PEOPLE, YOU DO REALIZE DOGS CAN BE TRAINED, JUST LIKE HUMANS???
I love the dogs in my life, but please! I don't ask them to help me masturbate, and I sure as hell wouldn't help them either.
That's right, there are people that are paid to jack off dogs. I wonder if they get good at it. Do they develop their own technique? A special flourish to the polishing of the red rocket?
Anyway, this sort of thing is best done in private, if absolutely necessary.
And uh, I don't have a dog, but if I did, I certainly wouldn't require its assistance to get off. I doubt a dog really needs help that badly. But then again, who knows :/
[Alert: slippery slope toward the ethics of dog breeding on the horizon...]
Just don't eat the eclairs for dessert.
Although I'm dubious, I suppose you could make some argument that this doesn't harm the dog. The dog, after all, appears to like it.
But to do it in front of his kids and dinner guests (who are also employees!), is all kinds of fucked up. This asshole needs to have his fucking head examined.
How many wolves, foxes, or coyotes naturally do search and rescue, guide work, etc. In return for safety and food and love, your dog agrees to do the things you train it to do. Sit, Stay, shake a paw, fetch, and in this case, fuck. The last one is weird and wrong (whether in front of kids and guests or not) in my opinion, but it is his dog, kids, and dinner guests. You could argue his kids shouldn't be exposed to slightly twisted behaviour, but hey, there are lots of kids exposed to worse things. As long as he puts as much effort into training his dog not to be an idiot in ways that affect other people, then what he wants to do after dinner is between them. I wouldnt likely accept a second dinner invitation, though...
That's assuming the letter is real, which I'm skeptical about.
If this happened to me while I was a guest in my boss' home, I'd leave. If he had a problem with it, I'd threaten a sexual harrassment lawsuit.
I learned a long time ago that you can't, and shouldn't, get chummy with management. Always causes problems.
It is not okay to do something like that in front of guests. The boss could easily have taken the dog aside to "give him his medicine" or "tuck him in" or some other euphemism. The old "in private and wash your hands after" rule of thumb can be applied here, but it goes triple for dogs.
On another note, dogs do masturbate, both males and females, but dogs also hump other dogs in dominance displays. That's why its not considered good sense to allow a dog to hump you--it may be sexual, but very often the dogs is trying to show that he or she controls you. The human should hold the upper hand, not the dog. The pup needs to be neutered when he's reached 5 or 6 months (he's not sexually mature at 3 months), but if he humps humans it needs to be discouraged, especially if he starts exhibiting other signs of pushing dominance.
Unless this sick guy has a teacup chihuahua that has a thing for a very large toy....he is doing it for himself.
I have to agree that the boss needs to stop doing this, or at least stop doing this in front of friends and family.
He tried it on the cat. ONCE.
Once, back in the 1970s, my father and his cousin took their hound dog (a champion hunting dog they wanted to put up for stud) to the vet. They asked casually about getting a sperm count. The vet - an upperclass Southern gentleman transplanted to Northern climes - said that was possible, and right there in front of them jacked the dog off. Pop and his cousin were never squeamish men, but he says that at that point they were left speechless and casting about for small talk. In retrospect, he finds the story hysterical.
Okay, I'm done. I think. But yeah, this manager has some SERIOUS boundary issues. "Just hang on a sec while I get my dog off" is NOT appropriate cocktail chatter.
And somehow, even though I'm not particularly disturbed by zoophilia in general, somehow a dude jacking his dog off with a teddy bear squicks the hell out of me. The dinner party audience is like whipped cream and a cherry on the squick sundae.
I'm not sure what his motivations are with the dog- it sounds like he might just be clueless and have boundaries issues. It's entirely possible that he is a harmless wierdo. But I wouldn't worry as much about the dog as I would about the 22 year old underling.
I've dealt with guys in the workplace who have boundaries issues and when I was 22 and naive I didn't know what the warning signs were. I've never dealt with anything as bizarre as that, but what I am trying to say is that it always starts off with something like that with those guys. They start crossing your boundaries in ways that you can't report or comment on and then they start crossing bigger boundaries.
Keep him in line early on before he can start pushing you around. Don't discuss things of a personal nature with him- boyfriends, dates, girl's nights out, etc. Don't give him anything he can use to parlay things into a sexual conversation. You can be polite and professional, but that's as far as it goes. Under no circumstances should you be overly friendly this POS, because I can almost garantee he will take it the wrong way.
A guy like that is going to keep pushing the boundaries further and further until you are being sexually harassed. In fact, I would take his behavior as sexual harassment until proven otherwise. He should know better. He should have known it would make people uncomfortable- whether it is or isn't animal abuse I'm not sure, because he doesn't actually have physical contact with the dog. But what he did was to be sexual in a round about way in front of you and make you uncomfortable. The fact that he used his dog to do it is really f**ked up.
Don't take it lightly, because you just never know. Especially as a 22 year old who doesn't have the advantage of years of dealing with guys like that. As a young, naive girl, she's going to give him the benefit of the doubt, because that is what I would have done at 22 also. Take it from a 33 year old who has been around the block and back- Watch out for this guy, because he might not be as harmless as he appears.
BAM! BAM! BAM!
