Being Bad with Arrow


Arrow is annoying at times. He can be whiny. Scratchy. Sloppy. He splashes water all over the floor. He has weird habits. He tries to follow people into the bathroom. He chews paper into confetti. But he is a sneaky little devil and when he plays he really plays.
Arrow's Who Me? Look

Destruction by dogs is at a fascinating new level around here. Arrow has a bit of a shoe fetish. He especially likes sandals because they smell better. He rips out the linings and chews them into little pieces. He eats certain leathers. Especially colored sandals. His favorite flavor is blue. Arrow has shown me that shoes have wonderful little parts that can come off and be chewed. Plastic things. Velcro things. It’s amazing what humans put on their feet. I used to gnaw on shoe laces for a while, but that got old fast. Not much flavor and kind of stringy.


Today we chased each other and he ran across a little table next to the bed. We found a chew attached to a watch! And some books. Being fond of paper, and slightly intellectual in an offbeat way, Arrow prefers library books to the newspapers or magazines that are usually laying around. But, in a pinch, he’ll chew up any books. Pages. Bindings. It’s all good. Also some little things that he chewed up so much, I don’t even know what they were. Possibly earrings or parts of bigger things?

He likes plastic. He finds it everywhere. Maybe he has a petroleum deficit. This morning he was playing with big pieces of dryer lint that he got out of the garbage. That and dental floss.

Have a nice weekend

HOLY GUACAMOLE! EATING BOOKS?!?! MomDad would ring my neck if I ated their books! They love them!

Scarlett mostly chews on her or my toys or MomDad's body parts. Oh and she is like a vacuum too...she'll be running through a room and chomp on leaves, paper, bits of lint that happen to jump out in her path. Does Arrow do that? I wonder if it tastes good.
