Back in the dog house

January 15, 2009

bad dogAs the kids would say … SRSLY WTF?

I call this photo “The Accused & The Evidence.” Yep. Sparky ate a hole in the drywall. Again. Second time he’s done this in about 3 months. So, he’s back in my dog house.

The amazing thing is that he did all this in the 30 minutes between the time Cari and the kids left for school/work this morning, and the time I came out to my office. The room was fine when they left — and the big hole was there when I showed up. And the dumb dog had a look on his face that told me he knew he had screwed up big time. But he’s like a crack addict who knows it’s wrong, but still can’t stop.

And it’s not like there’s nothing else around to chew on. He’s got three chew toys in the room, and I give him a rawhide chew (chicken flavor!) every night when I’m going to bed.

I love him, but he sure is a dumb dog. And he’ll probably be out of the proverbial dog house tomorrow. Cuz I’m a softie that way.

    Man, I needed a good laugh after the week I’ve had. That photo is priceless!!

    I was just thinking–maybe you need to feed him a rawhide chew (drywall flavor!) from now on. What in the world could have possibly been so exciting about that *particular* spot of drywall, also?!

    You’re in my dog house for applying a sticker of a brown butterfly to your wall and then calling out your dog on the internets.

    I have no idea why that particular spot of wall was so attractive to him. He’s nuts! Maybe, like Syzlak, he thought there was a butterfly on the wall. (That’s nothing but a scrape from some furniture that used to be in the room.)

    Oh, wait – you’re talking about the stuff he chewed off. I thought you meant those little dark spots above where he was chewing. Nevermind, Syzlak. Nevermind…
