The Puppy in His Glory


Well, now, didn't he have fun?

It's not as bad as it seems.

The puppy was given that big stuffed frog for Christmas

specifically so that he would chew that

instead of sofas, chairs, shoes, hats, gloves.

And

it

worked.

  1. Yep--some puppies just chew stuffed animals--mine is a goat dog. Check out what she ate! http://deb-day.blogspot.com/2011/04/goat-dog.html

  2. This is a doggie's dream!

    Beware the nylabone. We just had to have part of one surgically removed from one of our dogs. We are calling it the $4,000 nylabone. She will be okay, but we are sticking with the fluffy toys from now on!

  4. The frog gave its life so the rest of your house could live! That is one nice frog.

  5. And I didn't even notice the puppy in the background until just now. He looks quite pleased with himself! (And a little worn out.)

  6. Well, a fun time was had by all! Now what?

    I have what I thought was an obvious literary reference on my blog today, but no one has "gotten" it.

    Have a great weekend!

  7. My sister has a Newfoundland that has ingested toys of all kinds, shoes, kitchen cupboards (chewed corners), and numerous other items. Grizzly has been an expensive "venture" due to frequent trips to the veterinarian. It turns out that rubber (ex: shoe soles, bits of rubber balls) does not digest well and can lead to stomach problems.

  8. It looks like self-defense to me. What's a wee pup to do when he comes face-to-face with a frog that size?

  9. The frog looks like he's saying, "That's it! I give up. Please don't take another bite."

  11. He is lying there trying to look innocent. He looks like an Airedale mix. I have had several and they were all chewers.

  16. Buy a bottle of Bitter Apple at your local pet store! Spray it in the puppy's mouth every time you see him chewing ANYTHING he shouldn't be (it's totally safe to ingest). Accompany that spray with the words, "Leave it!" Give him a treat and love when he chews his own toys. You'll train him to stay away so well that eventually you won't need the spray. You'll see him going for something and can just say from across the room, "Leave it!" and he will. We went through two bottles of the stuff with Stella, but the chick is a dream now! It doesn't take long. :-)
