&%#$*!! Puppy

12 Aug

See that little puppy face? It’s really cute, right? Sweet, even.

Don’t be fooled. He is a little furry demon from hell. Gozer the Destructor in a brown fuzzy suit.

In the last 48 hours he has destroyed and/or eaten:

  • The Wii wheel responsible for this.
  • 2 boxes of 24 count Crayola crayons
  • 1 box of colored pencils
  • 2 packages of Big League Chew
  • 1 dozen chocolate chip cookies – still warm from the oven.
  • A copy of Freak The Mighty that Kitty is supposed to be reading.
  • A copy of The Wall Street Journal.
  • 2 Lego men – who can now be reunited in Lego heaven with their kinsfolk, slaughtered in previous skirmishes.
  • 1 sock
  • 1 plum
  • 2 granola bars

We won’t even get into the things he has had in his mouth that I’ve had to retrieve. The good news is that the kids are taking care of him. Just like they promised.


He hasn’t eaten any shoes recently, though. That’s something.

What’s the most ridiculous thing your dog has eaten? How did you react?

    Well in his defense….the WII remote wheel deserved to be eaten!!!!! I had a Silky Terrier who once ate his wicker bed ~ and boy let me tell you how he cried when he had to poop it out!!!!

    But he is so cute?!!!
    THe worst thing was the pedals to the stairmaster and the rubber nobs on the base of it. She did eat a dansko clog but not its mate.

      He’s eaten so many shoes! I don’t know why, but it hurts more when they just eat one, doesn’t it? And how does a dog eat nobs off the bottom of a stairmaster? That’s skill!

    Let me see…10 lbs of Halloween candy (Hot Tamales spit onto my beige oriental, guess too spicy for their delicate palettes), Cole’s brand new social studies book ( still owe $75), quilt torn in half during tug of war, nasty stuff pulled out of bathroom trash, pens, pencils, wooden paint sticks, army guys, numerous lego pieces have joined yours in Lego heaven, pool towels…and mine aren’t puppies!!!

    oh boy,, you got a “hot” one!! we had a springer spaniel that used to chew up beer/soda cans,and she chewed up a hotseat, (those pillow thingy’s that hunters tie to their butts to keep warm , while they do all that “sitting” on watch )
    you have to go invest in some dogtoys ASAP.. something he can chew the crap out of, stuff that is “his” i think the thick ropes work best.. anything else they tear apart to quickly.. Good luck & Have fun!! LOOK AT THAT FACE!!!

      Oh, he has dog toys! But maybe some of those rope ones…Thanks!

    Now how can you stay mad at that sweet face?
    I guess the worse that my pomeranian did were my shoes and laptop cord when she was less that a year old. Now, she only chews (and totally disembowels) her stuffed toys. But don’t leave a roll of bathroom tissues within reach because you will be coming home to a house full of shredded snow-like tissue.

      Anything having to do with my laptop would equal death!! Just kidding. I know he’ll get over this eventually – I’m just worried the house will be empty by then!

    lol, poor dog will have lots of chances to practice his ‘sad puppy’ face before he grows out of this stage, i think 😛
    Worst that was house-related destruction: my retainer. Apparently, dogs reallylike the smell/taste of things that have been covered in human saliva, according to my orthodontist (too late)… who knew?
    Worst that was just general grossness: old-flat-dead-rat… part of a mangled seagul carcass… Giant spiky-jawed fishhead (thank you fishing people… that was a nice thing to leave on the path).

      Eewwww! Rat! I have three labs. They did catch a mouse the other day, but thankfully only my hubby was home for that!!
