What? Little innocent Penny?
Yes, Penny! After we emerged from crate training, housebreaking and teething relatively unscathed I felt pretty good. So good in fact that I began to give Penny less and less crate time while I was out of the house. Recently however we’ve had a serious regression.
Penny’s never eaten a shoe before, but I guess my slipper was too tempting
Over a couple days Penny completely eviscerated the blanket she never once bothered with before. How am I sure it was her you ask?
Just a hunch
The slipper is still usable, as is is the blanket, so I gave Penny another shot. This time she went after the ottoman.
“What, no I didn’t? Look, there’s nothing here…”
The joys of puppyhood
Alright, Santa, time for a confession. The name you need to add to the list isn’t Penny’s, it’s mine. I know all about developmental stages, and I know Penny is entering the punk-adolescent stage. I saw the signs but looked the other way. I’m just thankful Penny is a shredder and not an eater. Puppy adolescence means we’re back to square one in a lot of ways. But we’re there together and we’ll have plenty of time to work on positive reinforcement techniques.
Put this one on my tab, Santa. Penny’s a nice-lister for sure.
