Hope is continuing to do well. Yesterday she walked up to me while I was sitting on the couch, looked me in the eye and told me she wanted a walk. NOW!
Her “I want a walk” bark infected Jake and Windy. We stopped what we were doing and took the furkids out. I guess Hope is learning to be a manipulator.
The Dog Days of August mean I begin to be away from home more, and Windy is not pleased. One day she got her jaws around a hardcover book. The result was not pretty. A couple days later, Hope decided to use an ottoman as a chew toy.
That ottoman has been through two puppies and numerous moves. I consider it dog property, but Hope did more damage in less than an hour than more than 20 years’ worth of other dogs’ handiwork.
Of course I didn’t get mad at Hope. I blamed myself for removing the blanket I keep on top of the ottoman. I needed to do dog laundry. Regular washing of blankets, toys, beds, etc. is essential to keeping your house from smelling like a kennel. However, if my furkids had their say, they would hide my Tide.
