that dog....


You would agree with me, he is cute, our Jack is? Unfortunately his boundless energy is not always spent in a particularly productive way.
  • The printer is no longer working because Jack chewed through the cable....
  • The beading on section of skirting board is no longer recognisable as such (and no longer fixed to the skirting)....
  • All the books and magazines from the coffee table had to be moved onto the window sill....
  • The recycling box is now Jacks toy box, milk bottle lids are his favourite toy.....
  • There are more unpaired socks than ever....
  • The cats are suffering from acute stress....
  • and my November sock yarn looks like this:


The joys of being the owner of a young dog. He is at least not climbing up the curtains. Yet.

Have a lovely second half of the week! Cx

  3. He's as thankful for his adorableness as you are, methinks. :)

  4. It's a good thing he's so cute or I suspect he would be in very big trouble. :-) Fergus was just the same when he was a puppy, right down to destroying a brand new and rather expensive skein of sock yarn. Take heart. They get quite civilized when they are a bit older.

  8. He'll be fine when he's older. A lot older! He is very cute though.

  9. I'm right there with you Christina.....all the books on my bookshelf with chewed spines are from 2004/2005 when we had our first Whippet pup...this time around we are replacing iPhone cords, a lightly more expensive exercise!! x

  10. Oh dear - your poor sock yarn!! Will you ever get it untangled? Mine sometimes looks like that just because I'm coming near the end of the ball. I've no idea why it goes like that! Jack is very lovely and, I'm sure, great fun.

  11. Hi Christina, my 11-week-old Irish Setter puppy is gaining some, er, 'confidence' too; we've had similar incidents with cable and yarn and just this morning she managed to pull over my 25-year-old 5ft weeping fig. She can't reach any books, I learnt the hard way with my other dog, she had a particular taste for my most prized old books. I bought some bitter apple spray as this is supposed to deter them from chewing things that have been sprayed with it and it sort of works, but not enough! Our cat was stressed at first but now just looks at her with all the contempt he can muster. So, what are we doing about Christmas trees? Jack is adorable, despite his antics :o) xx

  12. Oh dear, I think this is why I like dogs in theory, but prefer cats in practice.

  13. Oh dear! Well, it's a good thing he's cute. I don't think anyone gets much done with a puppy in the house. I'd suggest you buy him a chew toy but you probably already have, and he's ignoring it in favour of socks, yarn and cables which are ten times more exciting! x

  14. Haha, the joys of puppies.
    When I look at my beautiful old dog it's hard to believe she was once so cheeky also.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  15. Just like with babies, nap times are life savers!

  17. You've reminded me why I'm not ready for a puppy yet, I'm still revelling in the fact that my children don't totally trash the place any more (felt pens on carpets, towel rails pulled off the wall, lamps knocked over and smashed, gymnastic off the certain pole - no I'm not kidding).
    He is adorable though :D

  18. Oh how could that sweet little boy do all that damage? Surely you are kidding, he looks innocent to me.

  19. I'm dealing with similar yarn tangles, drawing on walls and every cupboard/drawer being emptied at the mo. I'm not sure if it's more acceptable when a child is doing it or not. Thankfully your puppy and my littlest are both v cute!! And I guess we can both repeat 'it's just a phase' xx

  20. I would agree, he is cute! Good thing, too!

  21. He is lovely and will stop chewing after a while. Our dog chewed one of the wooden shelves on ours kitchen island when he was a puppy - not a grat selling point for the house.

  22. Hmm, yes, sounds about right for a puppy!!! He will grow out of it just as fast as your love for him grows! xx

  23. Ah, the havoc they wreck! Good job they look cute......

    ReplyDelete
  24. Awww, he's so gorgeous. They may cause havoc but they're so worth it.

  25. Honey never chewed, for which I am grateful. The cat scratches everything....he is an adorable looking puppy Christina
