Atlas? He's not so dear to me.
Atlas is a dog who belongs to neighbours of neighbours. And the neighbours who are our friends take Atlas out most evening as his own people do not take him out.
Anyway, our friends/nieghbours sometimes stop for a drink with us and said Atlas always manages to do something, if only pee on bushes, in our garden.
I tell him it's not his territoire, but the territoire of our own dog who is a girl dog and so does not lift her leg.
But I feel sorry for the poor old boy, obviously past anything much more than lift his leg and he is always very glad of a biscuit or two.
Some French dogs lead very sad lives......(from my own observation!)
Never mind what makes people tick, I'm more interested in what makes dogs and cats tick.
