See this? At first glance one would think mouse.
Last month I told you about the new white bear that I gave Bailey to replace her worn out pink bear. Well, I'll admit I made a big mistake. Bailey loved the bear and immediately started carrying it everywhere with her.
When Morgan was a puppy I left the dogs in the house one day when I went shopping. When I returned, Monty met me at the door to report on Morgan's bad behavior. Monty always was a tattle tale. Morgan had found Rob's lap desk that was filled with pellets and had ripped the fabric open. Then I guess she shook it and rolled around with it. The living room was filled with tiny styro pellets. That was the day I learned that those things are impossible to vacuum or broom sweep. They just float around and cling to everything. Morgan was covered in them and I carried her outside and shook her, then hand picked them out of her coat. We were picking up pellets for weeks. Just when we thought they were all gone, we'd move something and there they were again.
After that experience, I've been very careful about what the dogs get to play with. I was really surprised that the new bear had gotten by my inspection. Unfortunately, I had to dispose of him. Bailey looked all over for her friend, so I went to the dollar store that afternoon and found a cute little dog toy. It was a bright color and squishy. It had a couple squeakers and also made a crinkling sound. I put it in Bailey's crate at bedtime as a surprise. She sniffed it, but has never picked it up. It's still in the corner of her crate. She doesn't like it.
