Things My Dog Ate This Week

Things My Dog Ate This Week. Thought I'd start keeping track of what goes through our dogs' digestive tracts, in case the vet needs to know for emergency exploratory surgery. I'm sure the list is twice as long as what's below.

I am making them both watch Night Two of Westminster Kennel Club Dog show so they can see how dogs are SUPPOSED to act. They will also notice that the treats the handlers give these dogs are smaller then erasers, not larger than melons.

1. Eyeglasses

2. Eyeglass case  my dog ate my glasses

3. One winter boot

4. Sentrilock card my dog ate my sentrilock card

5. Bluetooth earpiece

6. Doggie Bed

7. $50 worth of doggie toys

8. $20 worth of doggie bones

9. Coffee Table my dog ate my coffee table

10.$20 worth of doggie treats

11. All of the snow off the patio (obviously they've never
heard of Frank Zappa's "Please Don't Eat That Yellow Snow")

12. One blanket

13. Toilet paper my dog ate my toilet paper

14. One "Hello Kitty" dollhouse roof

15. One Wii remote

16. A lovely Pier One basket

17. Every fake apple, pear and pine cone in the house

18. 3 Plastic Cups  my dog ate my water cups


I sure hope this puppy/teething phase is almost over with! I swear they are never out of my sight and still I'll look down and there will be a foreign object sticking out of their mouth. I think they have secret time warp capabilities or hypnotic stares that make their shenanigans invisible to me. Most of the above items were up high. We discovered that with goldendoodles, their height needs to include their reach, too.

That really is quite a list of items.  I do remember my dog like to eat the toliet paper, but only if it was on the dispenser.  Go figure?

My husband just reminded me that I forgot to include my favorite hat and at least one pair of slippers and the tassles off his leather loafers.

Oh my,  All that in one week.  I really feel for you.  I might suggest Crate training.  If you can't really watch them, the crate training will keep them out of trouble.  The other thing you can do, if you are working from home, is to put a leash on them to keep them in the same room you are in.  But be careful they don't chew through the leash.  Good luck.

Debra, they are very familiar with their crate and are calm and quiet inside. No wait, they did eat their bedding this week. USUALLY they are calm and quiet in their crate. I have resorted to putting them in the crate when I am working at home and have mega deadlines. It's mostly Izzy the 6 month old Aussie Golden Doodle who carves a swath of destruction everywhere.. Cappy the Goldendoodle isn't nearly as destructive but he is now nearly a year old. He is susceptible to his sibling's charms though. if they weren't so dang cute i would be ticked, but after the initial shock of what they've done I just can't help myself.

Is it still alive?  It would be out side at my place in a hurry.

When my doodle was a pup, I had several kongs. I stuffed a treat in the hole of each one and then sealed it with peanut butter and then stored it in the freezer. It would keep her busy for a long time and feel good on her teething gums. I also had a ball made out of hard plastic that I could fill with some of her kibble. She would push it around the floor and every so often it would pop out a piece of kibble. That would keep her busy for a long time.

But, bar none, the best thing ever was teaching her how to fetch. We would spend an hour at the park every morning and then she'd sleep for hours.

Good luck!

Oh sweet Puppy-dom.  The puppy breath, the wiggling, the excitement, the energy AND the chewing...Here's hoping that part is in your rear view mirror soon.

Hee hee!  My Bob has separation anxiety so you never know what you are coming home to!  We have most of the house gated off!  My favorite had to be when he "toilet papered" the house!

Sorry for laughing!  This is something only a dog owner would understand.  I've only owned smaller dogs so the height thing is something new to me.  I am thinking it works much the same as with a baby.  I would get down to their level and remove all objects that might become a chew toy.  I also use kongs with great success as well as a dog trainer :).  Good luck!
