Mr. Innocent?


Well...Not so much...

Ooops ... How well I can relate. My new addition is 6-1/2 months old and some of her favorite chew toys are a roll of toilet paper or kleenex. Needed to hide all the hand towels since she steals them from the towel racks. Pulls the dish towels from the kitchen hooks and if she can score a glove, slipper, scarf, or shoe, she is in her glory. She is a bernedoodle (Bernese Mountain Dog and Standard Poodle mix).

Unfortunately at 50 pounds and already the height of a standard poodle, nothing is safe on the tables or counters. She has the "grab and run" down to a science and her favorite hiding spot is under the round end table. Unfortunately she has grown since she began the game and now everything shakes when she makes her way under. I don't doubt that one of these days, she will carry the table off on her back.

Her hair attracts everything but men and money! The groomer hesitates to cut it too short since she seems to still have puppy hair. After being out in the yard, she returns either covered with twigs, leaves, and burrs or looking like a snowdog (depending on the weather conditions at the time). In fact the snowstorm has left so much snow in the yard that all I can see is her back and head when she goes out. I have to towel dry her and pull ice balls off her when she comes in!

My children have all moved out ... I am retired ... relaxing ... able to do whatever I want ... whenever I want ... I needed a puppy ... WHY???
