read all about that here!
They are a collection of sorts!
Well, Milo has a similar love of magazines!
Milo: I LOVE a good magazine!
They make this fabulous ripping noise when you barely bite them!
They fall into these little pieces that remind me of tearing into prey!
This is a job for SUPER POODLE!
(They don't really taste like chicken if anyone told you they did)
Don't you feel great after finishing a big project?? I do!!!
And the mama doesn't have to shred anything! I do it for her! For NOTHING! Free!
Better get busy on those power naps! Gotta get them all in to my day, between the bursts of biting/running/playing and growing up!
My advice is take more naps!
(LeeAnna: whew! It's work letting a puppy work for you! Guess I am in the role of "snoop-ervisor"
I gave Milo a magazine headed for recycling. I started with the little inserts on card stock. He had so much fun I held the magazine for him to tear off pages. Then just graduated to handing him the whole thing!
It's so satisfying to see him busy. I know, I know, it's a bad precedent to let him chew a magazine but right now I choose my battles and I'm tired. He only chews the ones I give him, and when he's looked at others a "not that!" diverts him, and the others are out of reach of his teeth. He loves the sound of ripping and it reminds me of my lab puppy Chelsea.
She loved to tear up a cardboard box! Riiiiiiiiiip! He hears "not that, no, stop" often enough so around here so we chose to let him do this. We're all getting through this phase best we can! )
