post script to being a puppy. . .

While I love my puppies. . . they do try me sometimes. . . I just folded my laundry and thought, 'Huh, Jake must have done some wash' because there were none of a certain undergarment for me to fold. Knowing full well I wore a pair every day, I just thought they got washed without me. Until I came upstairs. . . . and looked under the bed Jimmy Ray fancies hiding under to find not one, not two but SIX pair of my underwear shredded. Apparently each night he is taking them out of the laundry basket and stashing them there. I guess we need a hamper that has a lid. . . . because that is pretty disgusting! But a small piece of me chuckles at the thought that my dog is trying to build a stash of his favorite things to rival my yarn stash. . . .

Good Night!

hehehee...that's a puppy for you!! Oh, my doggies are the same way...the only things they chew/try to go after are kleenex, smelly socks, and the same things as your puppy. Its a good way to remember to never leave your dirty clothes on the floor :)

My previous dog had that same fetish, but only for the really pretty ones that I spent $$ on. The plain old cotton everyday ones held no interest. Hence I got a hamper with a lid AND stop spending big bucks on undies.

My newer dog has decided that if there is food on/in the clothes they are fair game, but she only eats the part with the food stain and leaves the rest. So there are a few items that have gone away because the have perfectly round little nibble holes in them.

I personally have found using store bought stain remover instead is a more ecconomical choice. :)

My friend has a wonderful (but a bit discusting) story about his first dog. He grabbed things out of the garbage...things us ladies use once a month. His girlfriend was horrified each time it happened, especially when company is over.
