[Hello to new folks coming to visit thanks to the shout out on Nosafeword! And thanks, Sparky!]
Several weeks ago, OJ mentioned that he wanted to try some pup play. I wasn't terribly surprised, given that he gets more excited than my actual K9 whenever I pick up a leash. We still haven't had a real pup play "scene", but I've been slowly working some aspects in other play and encounters. He's certainly taken well to the collar and being on all fours.
Thanks to pup Leo, we quickly identified him as a beagle, but then began the search for the proper pup name. Lots of options and suggestions have come along thanks to my twitter friends and his own ideas. Elmo and Beaker were in popular running for a while, given the way he squeaks when tickled, but neither seemed quite right. OJ himself was pushing for "Frostbite" as he's always cold. In the end, and despite his protestations, I've settled on "Tebow." After all, he looks damn good in football gear and if he's wearing a Broncos jersey, I'll get much more satisfaction from flogging and/or spanking him. Plus the name has been blessed by SIR Alan and pup Nitro, two guys whose opinions I have a great deal of respect for. In fact, Nitro sent me an idea for a t-shirt...
In other random news, I was asked to help out with a demo being put on by one of the local pro Dommes, Mistress Kountessa. I was a little surprised, but I was willing to give it a shot. The demo was being put on for the T-Girls ball last week, which was a neat event. I enjoyed getting to chat with the crowd but around 11 it was time for us to get going. It would have been nice for the DJ to have given us a bit of a cue, however. I was off fiddling with the spotlight, trying to figure out the best way to light the demo area without blinding the players when the music started and he announced the start of the demo. Kountessa was wandering through the audience looking for her "volunteer" while I was backstage tearing into my backpack to get my ropes out and ready. Luckily the setup song gave us some extra time for me to straighten out my ropes while Kountessa called up her nervous audience member - played by the lovely Natalie, a pro sub out at 1763 - and teased her with the riding crop. On Kountessa's cue, I crept out from backstage, lasso'd Natalie, and tied her to a stripper pole. The first rope held her arms and upper body to the pole, got a second around her ankles, and then out came the (safety) scissors. Kountessa and I destroyed Natalie's dress, leaving her tied to the pole in bra, panties and high heels. I retired back stage to handle the lights as the second song came on and Kountessa moved on to some of her toys - particularly a bull whip that she was cracking in time to the music as Natalie squirmed and screamed. Floggers and the crop also came into play as the second song moved to the third and final, and Natalie's cries of pain and fear turned into delight. The song ended with natalie's "happy ending" from the riding crop. I went out to untie Natalie and help her down as Kountessa took her bows, and Natalie tore away to go kneel before her and cry that she didn't want to leave. I had to drag her off stage, kicking and screaming to try and get back to her mistress.
All in all, it was a lot of fun and I was really glad to get to participate. Plus, I got to wear my nasty pig gear. :)
