My word of the week is EXASPERATION.
Yep and I’m sure you know why and yes, he really did demolish his brand new bed to pieces! And we’re definitely not getting him another bed, till at least, he’s settled down a bit more.
He has actually improved a lot and has stopped chewing our furniture. Before going to bed, we usually give him his favourite stuff to chew on, a kong filled with treats, hoping that would keep him at least busy and happy till he hopefully falls asleep. We thought that he had outgrown being destructive, but obviously not. So for now, he’s just going to have to make do with old towels and rags to sleep on, which he actually loves and likes to shred little by little. In the morning, I spend the first ten-minutes of the day, sweeping off his debris.
Isn’t he supposed to be “better” since he is after all more than a year old and is considered a teenager in doggy years. Let me tell you a secret. Doc only has one ball. Shh. Please don’t pass on the gossip, especially to the other dogs who walk up in the headland. While I’m exasperated with him, I don’t really want the other dogs to talk about him or worse laugh or call him “One-ball Doc”. At first the vet was hoping the missing ball will eventually show up. it hasn’t. When he’s about 18 months old, his one other ball will be taken out. The vet says this will make him calm down a bit. I can’t wait for this to happen.
What’s the most annoying thing your dog has ever done in your home?
Have a lovely weekend folks!
