While driving back home I kept thinking of the little girl boxer left behind.
“Do you think Rocky needs a playmate?” I asked my husband. “I think we should turn around and go back for the girl.”
“Really? I wanted her too, but I didn’t think you’d go for it. You’ll be doing the bulk of the caregiving, it won’t be too much stress?”
Of course I knew that I would be the one doing most of the work. I figured how bad could it be? I’m a stay at home mom. My girls are in school all day, so I can provide plenty of time for training. So, we turned the car around and went back for the girl. Oh, if I would have known then that taking my eyes off these dogs for a second would result in complete loss of any household item in their reach, I would have insisted on a teacup poodle.
They have more toys than my kids, I work on training skills all through the day, and my husband takes them for walks when he gets home from work. According to the books, this should provide them with plenty of stimulation to curb destructive behavior. Apparently my dogs didn’t read these guides, because they think it’s mighty fun to rip stuff up.
A new roll of toilet paper and a hand towel.
If I don't open the blinds fast enough in the morning, they will grab them with their mouths to move them away from the window.
This was a heavy duty, very thick outdoor mat.
A brand new mat that went under their water bowls. I just paid $10 for it at Target a week ago.
And why we stopped buying stuffed animals with filling in them.
Oh, and let's not forget about poor Wrigley's Eye!
Do your dogs like to tear sh*t up too? Feel free to link up some of your pics in the comments section of things your dogs like to destroy :)
