Rip It To Shreds

So my dog, Clover, is a chewer. She has more chew toys than I can count on both hands, and while she is fond of all of them, she also loves to chew things that should not be chewed.  Non-chew toy things Clover has chewed to pieces include shoes, socks, dishtowels, plastic forks, the rug in the living room, the wooden leg of the couch, cardboard recyclables, plants, paper, extension cords, tupperware… I could go on. And I will, in pictures. Here are two recent noteworthy ones.

Clover clearly has a taste for music (hardy har har). This is not the first time she has dug the Boyfriend’s cds out of a box and mutilated them. Funny thing though, she’s pretty good with a writing implement for someone with no thumbs.

Clover thinks Jason Falkner is tasty.

The first time I boarded Clover the girl at the boarding kennel asked if she had a bed. She kind of looked at me like I was the worst dog mom in the world when I said “no, trust me, she’s good with the floor.”  Now that she’s more than a year old, we thought we would give a bed another try.

Mmm... stuffing.

Mmm… stuffing.

Turns out, she’s still good with the floor. Maybe next year, Clover.

    There are really only two ways to minimize that: 1: Fastidious cleaning. Which will ultimately fail, you will always forget that one slipper. 2: Running. Puppy ownership means mom runs the dog for 2 miles before work and dad runs the dog for two miles after work. We did that for about a year, until Ziggy was out of puppy phase. Now our house is down to a few shoe laces, a few Tupperware and some paper towels, that’s it.

    It took us until close to three years old before the puggles wouldn’t eat their own bed.
