A GRIM silence gripped a family as they tried to concentrate on an episode of Doctor Who while ignoring their dog furiously licking its own genitals.
The Logan family’s six-year-old labrador Teddy spent close to 45 minutes slobbering all over itself in full view of everyone.
Recounting the experience, mother Susan said: “Initially when I heard the sound I thought someone was in the kitchen vacuuming up some spilled yoghurt. But then I realised it was Teddy.
“We tried our best to ignore it, but frankly it’s rather difficult to care about Jodie Whittaker waving a sonic screwdriver at a Dalek when your dog is fellating itself on your new sitting room rug.
“Eventually, we had to tell the kids that Teddy was just cleaning himself, but I’m not sure if they believed me. I mean, nobody enjoys cleaning themselves that much.”
Husband Tom Logan said: “It was disgusting but fair play to the guy. If I had that kind of flexibility, I don’t think I’d ever have felt the need to get married.”
