Home alone

Recently, I was so happy to find out that dog hair we had found on the sofa was not from the big, smelly FREE dog sleeping there... she simply needed to hide her perfect, like new, never-been-chewed rawhide under the cushion.

Ah.. so foolishly relieved.

I came in from work yesterday evening to find the living room and dining room ransacked. Cushions and pillows all over the floor, blankets strewn about, a lamp tipped over, a picture fallen to the floor, tables askew, the rug bunched up...
It didn't take me too long to figure out that that the FREE dog had happily (or perhaps feverishly) spent the day finding a better hiding spot for her perfect, like new, never-been-chewed rawhide.

In case you need to know - after (I can only assume) trying every other place in the room, the rawhide was finally placed back under a different cushion on the sofa.

I had a brief moment of thinking you might have been invaded as Deborah was. Glad to hear the ransacking was just the free dog!

Truly!

Free dog must be pretty serious about hiding places. Quite the perfectionist, that free dog.

a hiding place is no good if it's found :)

This reminds me a little of our old dog. We finally had to stop giving her cheweys. She'd walk around with them in her mouth, whining, and looking for a place to bury them. She could spend quite a long time stressfully pacing around, "burying" and unburying them. When we'd have to move them she'd get very upset and stressed. They just seemed to make her really neurotic. Our dog now doesn't get them, she's too possessive of them w/the cat around. We give her biscuits, or sometimes stuff her kong instead.

Sounds like the FREE dog needs a FREE friend. ;p

sounds like the FREE dog is a tad like Weese... but not as neet in her endeavors, just in her analness! :)

Isn't it wonderful how much entertainment a simple rawhide can offer a pet?
