The Joys of Puppysitting

Yesterday morning I was at the computer writing a blog post and not paying a lot of attention to the wrestling dogs.  I was pet sitting Betsy while Kalissa was at work so Ruby and Betsy got a play day.  The dogs were doing their typical wrestling-nipping and biting, playing tug of war and rough housing.  I didn’t think anything of it until I heard the dog bell on the door ring.  I got up to let the dogs out-came around the corner to this….

Toilet paper all over the kitchen floor….and who is the culprit??  BETSY!!!

Ruby never in her entire life has been attracted to paper or toilet paper…Betsy is drawn to it like a magnet.  She will chew and find anything that resembles paper…a business card, grocery list, scrap of packing, a receipt, quilt designs…anything that is paper and she chews it like CRAZY!!  The dogs were never quiet while they were wrestling so I have no idea how this could have happened in between all the wrestling…and honestly it wasn’t at the computer for more than five minutes before the bell rang!!  Oh Betsy….

She is a little diva dog-that’s for sure.  It seems there is never a dull moment around here.

  1. This cracks me up! I have a toilet paper thief too! It was especially funny when you said it wasn’t quiet at all! That is a sure sign of trouble! Double trouble, in your case! LOL!

  2. She’s so cute and super guilty looking! We taught our dog to ring a bell to go out as well. It only took her two weeks to get the hang of it. Best thing we ever did!

    Our 9 month min. Schouser loves and kind oh paper. Or the stuffing out of a pillow, newspaper. And the inserts from DH shoes…we check for paper when we leave the house.

  4. We have a one-year-old Samoyed who is a expert paper shredder. We could hire him out to businesses. He is finally leaving newspapers and toilet paper alone, but does eat a used Kleenex once in a while.

  5. Oh boy…those cute little puppies can get into so much trouble! Today our beagle Baylee ate DH’s Bose Stereo remote, ruht-roh! Tell us more about the dog bell on your door…Baylee isn’t giving signs of needing to go out yet at 9 mos., so maybe we need another training tool.

  6. Our dog, too, loved Kleenex. If she got hold of a box, she would pull every one out! She would also get into peoples purses to hunt for them!!
