She is pretty much a picture perfect dog. When taking her for walks I have people stop their cars to tell me what a beautiful dog she is and to ask where I got her. Which is totally not creepy at all, by the way. Aside from her picture perfection she has a few little quirks; the biggest of which is the underwear eating.
Do you know how expensive underwear is? Especially when you are forced into buying it when it’s not on sale. I tried to save money and just buy the cheapest underwear I could find because the dog is just going to eat it anyway. Let’s just say with two teenage girls, that didn’t go over well.
I wrote a plea to her on my blog begging her to stop with the all of the underwear eating. While I don’t claim that my dog can read or that she subscribes to my blog in some fashion, the underwear eating stopped for a bit. Then I realized that neither of the girls had cleaned their room for a while and it wasn’t that the underwear eating stopped, but that the dog didn’t have access to the goods. Dirty, clean, she doesn’t really care. I have seen her snatch underwear out of the dryer to get her underwear fix.
She is nearly a year old, I don’t see this stopping anytime soon. In fact, I think she is perfecting her method. Because the speed at which she can completely destroy the crotch in a pair of underwear is quite impressive. Does David Letterman still do Stupid Pet Tricks? Clearly, I have a candidate. The upside is that if something should happen to my family I know that I won’t be embarrassed by the condition of their underwear, unless of course I forgot to get to the store after Barney went on a rampage.
So if you are reading this and have connections to underwear manufactures, I want to be your new BFF. If you have advice, please feel free to share it. Just realize that we won’t be putting hot sauce or bitter spray on the underwear, because well, we do have to wear it.
