Between my two dogs, we all know which dog is the good dog. Anytime there is something destroyed in this house, we know just who to look to.
We often times joke about the destroyer really being Sampson, who then sits back and watches Delilah get accused of his dirty deeds.
Don’t get me wrong, when Sampson is playful, and sometimes when he’s stressed, he will destroy a toy, but other than that, he’s such a good boy.
Many’s the time I’ve walked out the door and gotten to the gate before I realized I’d left his leash inside. I have actually left him at the gate and told him to ‘Wait’ and he’s still standing in the exact spot I left him when I get back.
He’s never been a counter surfer, except when he was younger, he did go on the counter for Filet Mignon (no-one can blame him for that) and butter.
In fact, he loves butter so much, my sister’s nickname for him is ‘Butter.’
We recycle in my house. We recycle pretty much everything, glass, cardboard, paper, plastic. Because we have so much recycling, I hang a plastic bag on a door know in the kitchen, and when the bag gets full, I take it out to the bin.
For the past week, an empty butter box has been waiting to go to the bin, and at some point, it fell out of the bag and made its way to the floor.
Confession: Delilah loves butter too, and so I left the empty butter box on the floor to see how long it would take for her rip it up.
The butter box stayed on the floor for two to three days, before it was finally noticed.
But it wasn’t Delilah….
So what do YOU do when your good dog turns into the bad dog?
Well, if you’re me or Hubby, you take pictures and record it.
And after you’ve gotten all your photos and video, (and your dog is ripping the butter box apart) you give the dog some butter. 🙂
The funny thing is…there wasn’t a smudge of butter in it…just the smell.
I’ll be working on getting that video up on our Facebook page. You can check us out on Facebook by finding the little Facebook icon.
