Having raised labs & setters, I thought I'd seen it all. Until I rescued an AKC English Pointer puppy who can jump the fence in a single bound, head high, eyes skyward--chasing birds & squirrels. When in the yard, she digs. Once escaped, she jumps into other dogs' yards, plays for awhile, then jumps back out--stealing their toys in the process. Thank goodness school's out, or I'm afraid she'd be on the playground, taking kids' lunch money, as well!
Cute dog cute kids funny stuff
I love the Puppy Chronicles!!! Stoney is beautiful dog...glad she survived. I think our dog has Stoney beat on eating objects...we thing ours ate an entire ipod. He likes to eat things of "personal nature" such as worn underwear, socks, etc. They then "reappear" in large pieces and are easily identified. One day my teenage daughter's ipod and holder were "missing" after a trip to the gym. Surprising enough the bright green leather holder "showed up" in the yard. The ipod was never to be found. We considered taking to the vet for an x-ray but thought it would have been impossible to eat. We have since moved that thought we would surely find it somewhere but no, it was never found!!
Take care of that dog-she looks like a keeper
My son brought home a 1/2 lab 1/2 German short. I didn't know one puppy could destroy as much stuff as "Monte" has. We can only give him "Dogzilla" brand toys. He eats everything else. (so his nick name is "Dogzilla." But we are still pretty attached to him.
Glad Stoney is on the mend! I got a black lab at just about the same time, but he doesn't seem as intent to destroy things...yet, anyway!
Sorry should be dog house.
Glad everything worked out for you. The first year my wife and I were married she got me the cutest little black lab pup that then ate 6 brand new G&H duck decoys, 2 beer cans, the side of our house hot tub cover and one of those indestructable gog houses. Good luck Gayne.
I am glad Stoney got better... someone has to keep the kids busy on nights you can't find a babysitter!
Limestone "Stoney" Young has been with the family a little over a month now and it’s been a month of joy, destruction, pain, and bliss. Here’s a look at Gayne’s new dog ownership.
