Walker, the new friend of the Farmlet, has a voracious appetite for chewables. To date he has killed Noodle’s squeaky plush toys; both the squirrel and the chipmunk! He has also killed two of my good cotton anklets, and one pair of my favorite cotton underwear.
If I am busy about the house, then he is in his puppy
It keeps him out of mischief.
Anyone care to guess who that photo bomber is? 😉
If I am seated watching TV he is attached to my little footstool/rolling table. Even so, he tried to eat the corner of the couch, while I was sitting there.
In my studio he is on lead and attached to the cutting table… and you guessed it, he found something to chew; my expensive Tutto Sewing machine buggy! It isn’t bad, but it is irritating.
Walker! This is not a toy!
So today I took one of the many pockets I have saved from Bob’s old blue jeans and stuffed it with leftover quilting fluff and one of the squeaky buttons from the killed plush toys, then sewed it shut and voila! A new chewy for Walker.
So, how long will it last? Who can say?
I know these bad-dog symptoms are a direct result of boredom (and teething too), but what he needs is to go walking with me. I walk him on lead in the backyard, but we can’t go anywhere else until his last Parvo inoculation.
In only 2.5 weeks and I am counting the days!
A word on dog/cat/human immunization: There are some out there who are on the “no pet vaccine wagon”. They are some of the same people who think that human immunizations are bad. Well, I do not want to hear it.
- I almost lost my little sister to Whooping Cough when she was about 4 years old.
- I DID lose a dog to Parvo when I was a teen.
These two incidents were scary as hell and I will not skip an immunization for myself or my pets. I can think of a lot of ways to die, but not from an unnecessary and preventable illness.
Nuff – said and OMSB now.
