I love my dogs. I do. I love how goofy they are, how fun they can be. Their big floppy faces and puppy dog eyes…
But seriously. I am done with them right now.
They get lots of attention. They have plenty of bones and chew toys. The kids play with them in the yard. And yet they continue to find things to chew on and destroy things that they KNOW THEY AREN’T SUPPOSED TO.
Oh everyone expects puppies to chew up a few things but this is getting beyond ridiculous. More than a pair of shoes have been destroyed and countless stuffed animals. I can deal with that. My wall?? Oh yes, more than once. My floor?? Oh yes, they apparently can chew a hole in the middle of linoleum although I have no idea how they do it. Oh, and more than once. Two dog beds. My COUCH. And just now…. winter jackets belonging to The Boy and Beans. The only jackets they own.
My budget cannot keep up with their destructive behavior. I understand now why some families have to part with their pets. If we don’t find a solution soon I might move beyond tempted to “FREE DOGS TO LOVING HOME”. Wherefore art thou Cesar Millan?
