D**m Dog!!!

Okay, so I went to the store to get cat food. No big deal as I had fed the d**m dogs already and there was food left, right?!? WRONG!!! Ten minutes!! Thats all I was gone, and that stupid black lab (14 mos.) had already torn the wicker garbage basket up and strewn it across the room and out the doggie door into the dog run!! Not my dog mind you, I didn't even want the darn thing, I said no last Christmas when my son(20 yrs) asked me so he asks DH and he says "Yes if Mom is OK with it" NO I AM NOT!!! Now the darn thing thinks that I am supposed to be with him all the time and if not he will punish me. ARRGGAHH

Thanks, That makes me feel a little better, but... he also stole the extra pumpkin pie after we got done Thanksgiving Day so.......

I'm sorry, but, I have been through it all, over and over again. I love my doggies. DH get's so mad at them and threatens to take them off, but, I would beat him sensless if he even tried I look at it a little different than most people. All the chewing and messes are worth the love and devotion that I get from them after their puppy stage.

The thing is, it's not just Labs, it's all retrievers and the working dog group. They have to have something to do constantly. What sometimes works is, buying the pup something to chew on. When you catch them with something that is not allowed, pick it up, stomp your foot and loudly say NO, then give them THEIR toy and say, this is yours and pet their head when they take it.
Mine is 9 months and does so much better with finding clothes and things to chew on when she has her stuffed animals to play with. I go to the dollar store and buy stuffed animals without beaded eyes. Get the ones with sewn eyes.

My brother in law's retriever literally ate into the side of their rental home for which they ended up paying big bucks (my sister-in-law's reaction was like yours, Dawn)------these breed of dogs apparently need chew toys and lots of them--Rufus would chew on a log until his gums bled....hope your purgatory is over soon.

please, all of the tourists planning on coming to nyc over the next coupla weeks, stay home. or go somewhere else.
there's no shows, the weather's crappy, and the tree is especially small this year.

and i can't take the commute anymore.

oh, if you must come, be sure to take the express lanes of I-80 into the GW bridge.

Just to make you all feel better - at least (hopefully) you're not dealing with power outages (at least once a week) for an hour or two- usually when everyone's making supper - the joys of living in Africa :-)
Can relate to the black lab story - my puppy used to sit next to me whenever I planted anything and I could be sure that the remains would be waiting for me when I got back from work the next day - he never left one plant in the ground.
