Well don't I feel STUPID!!!

My sons puppy, well she's gone now, chewed the cord on my treadmill 3 weeks ago. I finally remembered to get a new one while in town Friday { I don't get out there but maybe once a month, the stores are 35 miles away and I just don't have time to go for only one thing}, ANYWAY, I brought the new cord to dh and went to cut the old cord, I was looking it over to make sure that I got to the lowest part that was chewed and low and behold, it wasn't the cord to the treadmill that was chewed, it was the extension cord!!!! I am so mad at myself. I could have been on that thing all this time. I had forgotten that it was on an extension. Needless to say, now I have a LOT of walking to catch up on
Just wanted to vent, that's all

We had to give the little cutie away. She was eating everything!! When she chewed up my hubbys sago palm, that was it. She's with a good family with 2 small kids that just love her and have time to train her better. I still miss her, she was lovable too.

If we didn't do stupid things, how would we learn. We all do stupid things but some won't admit it.

.....that's what puppies do - chew things. Suprising how many people don't realise that when they get puppies. They also don't realise that puppies pee on the floor and grow up to become big dogs and also grow up to be nuisance dogs if they are not trained. That is why we have so many of them into the rescue I volunteer for.

Enough said. I knew I shouldn't have read this post - sorry for venting, but it's a sore subject for me, and I know how tempting those cute puppies can be, they can really wipe out all common sense with those big 'take-me-home' eyes LOL! I'm glad you managed to find it a good home - most people would have just dumped it at the local humane society, so good job there!

Paint, just to make you feel better, I have 6 grown dogs from 2 - 13, that we have had since puppies, all very well trained{though the little heatherns still get into the trash } They are inside/outside, have a doggie door, sleep in bed with us and lay ALL over the house, they love taking all of the vents. They get nilla wafers just before bed as a treat for being good. I love me some dogs,that's for sure. My husband told me that when I'm old and by myself, the kids are going to call me the dog lady. I will never be able to have nice furniture, b/c I won't go without a dog.

As I said, it was my grown sons dog {he's 18}. He wasn't able to take care of her or train her any longer due to a job that he started and pulls him into overtime, sometimes as much as 65 hours a week. That is the only reason that we didn't keep her. My hubby and I both work now and we didn't have time for her.
Believe me, I don't like people that just get them and get rid of them, because they whine or chew. I have a few people in my neighborhood that do this. I do not!!
We made sure that she went with someone that we know and will train her and take care of her. We refused to give her to just anyone and wouldn't take her to the pound.

Just wanted to ease your mind about it. I'm not that type person.

Thankyou for being so gracious & understanding about it. I guess it was a learning experience for your son and he realises that maybe it's just not the right time for him to have a puppy yet.

Sometimes my mouth just gets ahead of my brain

I really understand. It's no problem.
We don't know each other except on here, that's why I told you about me. I would take in every stray if it weren't for my husband!! LOL
