OK-so I have been gone for a very long time. I have been taking care of 2 naughty puppies. They have been consuming much of my last 8 months. Consuming....yes, comsuming. Consuming time, consuming energy and just plain consuming! Be it dollar bills(literally) or hamburger rolls. So I have decided to keep a running log(or keep tabs on) all of their naughtiness as a way to just plain vent!
Today(or at least just this evening) Moxie laid on the stairs while we were putting the boys to bed and chewed up the sleeve on a pretty new(cool) shirt of Ethan's. It is now a play shirt or cleaning rag. Before that I came home from the gym to find Mulligan laying in his crate surrounded by little pieces of a plastic bag. I looked closer and saw the words, "hamburger rolls"-I had just bought a package of wheat hamburger rolls to use with turkey burgers tomorrow for dinner. Well, I guess he ate 5 of the 8 rolls that were in there. That dog needs serious food counseling. He just can NOT help himself! He swipes the kids sandwiches off the island when I turn my back in the morning. Seriously naughty.
So lets see what I can think of in the last 8 mos that has been eaten, chewed, destroyed, etc.:
My eyeglasses(off of my bathroom vanity, mind you)
An entire bag of trash out of the outside garbage can which was strewn all over the yard
a hockey elbow pad
2 almost brand new $35 sports bras
a pair of Trevor's favorite underwear
the rungs on the bottom of 3 of my GOOD dining room charges
wallpaper of the laundry room walls
THE walls!!! The wainscoating and bench seat in the breezeway
5 of my snowmen from the piano room
about 20 rolls of toilet paper
apples from the kitchen counter
bananas from the kitchen counter
Ethan's school book-honestly!
SEVERAL kids toys(footballs, etc)
Greg's cell phone case
each other's poop from the front yard
smashed dog food bowls off of the dryer
bird feeders in the yard
every and all articles from the recycle bin
a $5 bill and 2 $1 bills
a very good decorative rug
Did I mention I have had to induce vomiting on both-one for eating a chid's toy that was risky and one for eating grapes that can cause kidney damage.
Oh, and did I mention one of them has had to have double elbow surgery?
And they still pee in the house.
