Faces

Picture Kendrie’s face: “Mom! Barley just bit a hole in my brand new school shirt!”

Picture Barley’s face: “You can’t even be mad at me because I’m so cute!”

Picture Mom’s face: “Not right now you’re not. And yes I am.”

uh oh! Barley's a chewer! :{ I imagine Kendrie was mad, Barley was looking all sweet and innocent, and you were quite annoyed?

Everyone always says they make puppies so cute for a reason. It's hard to stay mad at them for long! :)

My fiancee and I want a dog so bad, but I am thinking we might get a dog that's a little older so we don't go through that chewing stage. When my parents got their black lab, my Mom said she started decorating with duct tape until the dog had stopped chewing!

Our puppy chews shoes. Little girl shoes taste best, especially since they don't get put away as often as they should. Rachel has lost a favorite blouse to the teeth of the dog, and most of the girls' nightgowns have tooth holes in them. Something about a skirt swirling around legs makes it ultra tempting to chew!

Paper? Yum! Stuffed animals? Delicious! Anything that she can steal from the laundry basket? Doggy heaven!

We have resorted to giving our puppy pigs' ears and Busy Bones to chew on to try to tame the chewing beast. I can't wait for her to lose her baby teeth already!

The majority of my t-shirts have "duke holes" in them. It is frustrating. WHen I first read your post, I thought it said that Braden pit a hole in my shirt. I was a little concerned....

Oh yeah. Yesterday, I was preparing food to take to a friend. I had a beautiful handmade card to go with it, and it fell off the counter, unnoticed. When I saw the envelope sans card, I looked around but didn't see it. Went by the great room, and there was a big black puppy face grinning up at me with card shreds all around her! ugh. This morning she came into the kitchen and my son nearly came out of his skin; she was carrying one of his favorite stuffed animals in her mouth, trying to convert it to a "Blackie toy". Decorating with duct tape, eh? Starting to sound really good....

My cousin had a daschund - it stole steak that was busy defrosting... in the sink. It figured out it could jump onto the sofa and then from there a daring jump onto the kitchen counter and to the sink, voila!

My 6 month old doodle hasn't been too bad, because we've had so many toys right where she can get them. Also, she's still gated in the kitchen most of the time. Well, last week she was spayed, so we weren't allowed to walk her like usual. She started eating things that were hanging on the fridge, everything on the counter (so much for no jumping!!!), etc. Little brat! We're walking her again, because it seems to really do the trick. She's bagged when she gets home.
I also use busy bones, when she seems to need something different. They're great when there's lots going on in the house, making her a bit psycho. She grabs that thing and runs right into her crate. Gotta love that!

Having had dogs now for more years than I care to count, I say enjoy the puppiness! Yes, they can be destructive - but the curiosity and innocence they bring to their explorations is thrilling to watch!
