When I got a dog. Don't worry, I like Satchmo, he's not going anywhere :). Lets just say I forgot about some of those puppy period idiosyncrasies until yesterday.
Idiosyncrasies like a penchant for destruction while bored....
What these photos fail to capture is the sheer extent of the mess. Under that dog bed, there is a lot more. Destructo tally includes one umbrella, one Bluetooth headset, one Tupperware lid, two license plate covers, our dog bed, at least one plastic bag, one emptied bookshelf, several shredded documents, one laptop case, one cardboard box, shredded some Styrofoam, and used a refractometer as a bone. The room was covered in little chewed bits of paper and Styrofoam and cardboard. Also located and shredded a cat toy and found the hiding place of the tennis ball and ball thrower for the dog park (He's got the tennis ball in his mouth there).
Miraculously he didn't destroy either computer or find my knitting which was hidden behind the lap top (He thinks grabbing knitting and chewing on knitting needles is a Very Fun Game).
Apparently we need a little more exercise before being left alone for several hours. The weird thing is we have occasionally left him before and he's been just fine.
