I've been in JAIL!!!

She says its actually protective custody. SHE is having the counter tops replaced. It was supposed to be a 2 day job and now we are going into week 2. Since the contractors are in and out all the time, she put me in my play yard. I get bones and water. And my blankey. Once I nearly scaped, but thank goodness my 10 ft. drag line got caught under the edge of door. There is a tiny little knot on the end and that's all that saved me from running under the wheels of the counter delivery truck that was backing up the driveway. I did a back flip when I reached the end of my string and she was able to scoop me up before I was flatted. I guess I'll keep her, she does have my back sometimes.

I don't get to chew on rawhide bones too much. For one thing, I'm very possesive about them and tend to get 'protective' in a terrier sort of way. And the other...I chew them up very quickly and have to be monitored so I don't swallow any bits. Those flashy jaws of death can really gnaw their way through a bone in a hurry. Anything smaller that this Mango sized bone is gone in a New York minute.

When it gets nice n chewed up like this, SHE takes it away from me and cuts the good part off so I can't eat it. Bummer.

Puffy got crated all week. He would just get totally under foot and stepped on. I guess the play pen is better than solitary confinement.

All that and I bet those old counter tops were perfectly fine anyway!
Cheers, H.
PS I know all about so-called 'special' dog food that tastes of cardboard....

Mango said...

What a total pain. No wonder you tried to escape with all those worker dudes banging around.

Hey! I get raw meaty bones to gnaw on. You might try those. They last longer and don't require as much snoopervision. You can just send the unused portion of your rawhide to me. Hehehe.


MAX said...

Hey there, Bonnie!
Awww..what a way to spend a sunny day! (Oh yes - you are not sunny at the moment, are you?) but we sure are glad that Mom saved you from that car!!!
Enjoy those bones and don't worry about mom cutting off the best pieces - trust her!

You are fortunate that your Mom lets you have some rawhide - we never get it unless we steal a puppy chewie and then she always catches us.

Do you need us to send you a cake with a file in Bonnie?
You know we will do whatever it takes to help your friend.
That is a humungous chewie you have there!

Hey! We remember that blankie! Could you smell us on it? (We helped with all the stitching, as you can imagine.) We're glad you were helped to be comfy during your incarceration, kind of a **** rating, we're assuming.

Your chewing on that rawhide looks interesting. Our moma won't let us have it, and we know there used to be a big bag of it hidden in some closet. We think it disappeared though. Now that's where the toys go that are being shelved for a bit. Oh, the life of a dog.

Hoping the two day project that is dragging on comes to a speedy end,
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Crickey, what a close call with the truck. Leggeds do have their uses. Specially if they give rawhide that huge.Wow.I'm not allowed rawhide either. Seems like your Moms a keeper.

Wiry wags n kisses Eric xxx

You're so lucky that you get to have that yummy-looking rawhide bone, Bonnie! Our mom is a poopoo when it comes to giving us those!
We're glad to hear that you didn't get run over by the truck!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Smooches, Hootie

Hi Bonnie. Hootie whispered in my ear that he thought you were one hot terrier gal!!
