Goat-Dog Unleashes Wrath Upon Unsuspecting Teddy Bear

Mark and I have come to terms with the fact that we've adopted not a puppy, but a goat-dog hybrid. This dog will eat anything and everything that she can get into her mouth.

Here's a sampling of a few things she's managed to annihilate...
  1. My New Balance sneakers
  2. My only pair of nice brown sandals
  3. TWO leashes
  4. TWO harnesses
  5. A pillow
  6. Countless dog toys
  7. Socks galore
  8. A mouse in Rural King that may or may not have already been dead when she found it.

This afternoon, I leave her alone for 5 minutes. When I find her, she was chomping on this teddy bear(my first and only effort @ making a teddy).
Sadly, I didn't come to his rescue in time. Sorry, Ted.


I scolded her and pried Ted from her mouth, replacing him w/a pig ear. But I don't think Mya was terribly upset over what she'd done to the poor guy...she gave me one of her usual looks ....which was kinda like this...

Ohhhh bad puppy! But you can hardly be angry at a face like that! It was a VERY nice teddy bear though, she does have taste at least!

But she is sooooo cute! My parents just got a puppy and he's doing the same thing right now... when he's not sleeping that is! Good luck to you!

*GASP* I'm so sorry!!! That bears was so adorable too :( *wahhh*

Sad but true, I've gone through a few dogs for that very reason. I don't do chewing or submissive piddling - can't do it. I hope there aren't anymore "casualties"

I just saw these pictures on Facebook and I am still cracking up. And how can you get mad at the cutie-pie face?

I'm sorry about Ted but OMGOSH! THAT FACE IS SO CUTE!!
As for the other 'chewies.' It won't last. Just give her something HARD....pig's ears aren't tough enough for her. Try one of those nasty smoked cow hooves. But give it to her OUTSIDE b/c once they get wet they STINK...but dogs love 'em.
Take it away from her when it starts getting small so she doesn't actually swallow it whole.

That picture of Ted all gnarled up with Mya in the background is award-winning. Seriously. You captured that moment!!!!
