Dumb Shit I Do Pets Things that piss me off WTF?

Bad Dog

December 12, 2012

File this under I Should Have Known Better.

I put away all the remotes, coasters, books and anything else that was lying around at puppy eye level. I’ve learned my lesson, I thought, as I picked up my daughter’s favorite teddy bear and locked it in her room for safe keeping.

Then I left the house to go to the Y for a quick work out before coming back and doing some more editing on my book Minnesota Nice (feel free to like the Facebook page for it on the right sidebar over there ->->-> ).

I really should have known better.

What’s worse is that the other dog, and the cat, didn’t do anything to stop it. I actually feel betrayed by Stanley. Ruby, the puppy, sat at the tree and just gnawed at the ornaments. Many of them were hanging in the tree half chewed.

What’s remarkable is that she doesn’t have a scratch on her. She has no cuts or any sign that she ate roughly three boxes of glass ornaments. She even ate Toilet Paper Man.

Guess who’s on the Naughty List this year?

    I don’t know why, but I’m laughing my ass off about Toilet Paper Man.
    I’m sorry, but it’s your fault for taking a moment to go have a life.
    Silly you.

      I texted the picture of the mess to ex#2. He was the one who spotted the death of Toilet Paper Man. It really is quite sad and when the daughter gets home from school I suspect she will want to make another Toilet Paper Man. We could if the dog didn’t pull all the discarded rolls out of the waste paper basket and rip them to shreds.

    The solution is smaller dogs, like chihuahuas. 🙂

    R.I.P., toilet paper man! Henry tried to eat our tree as soon as we brought it indoors. After a week, he’s now responding to admonitions to leave it alone. As usual, I’m late to the party, but glad I got here before all the ornaments got eaten. Wishing you a wonderful New Year!
