the dog did it...

ok...i had to calm myself before i could even post this! it's been awhile since i posted and mainly it's because i wanted to capture evidence of the destruction our family dog has done! I'm sure none of you really knew we even have a dog, that's because Gunner is more military man's hunting dog than a family pet. Or at least that's how he started out.

A little history first...

While military man was deployed this most recent time his best buddy told him he found the perfect hunting' dog for us and he was just a pup. He graciously offered buy the pup and give him a home and begin training him so that when military man returned from duty he'd be ready to go. All he asked in return was a few souvenirs from Afghanistan. Sounded like a good deal to us! Gunner is a full bread German short-hair and he has now reached the status of "family member". He's a great dog and we love him dearly and he is so great with booderbean, and booderbean is pretty much attached to him too.
BUT--like every dog...they have their days!!!

below is a photo of what we found in our backyard last week...apparently Gunner has become a digger AND A CHEWER!!!!!!! Let me tell you all now, if he digs up my rose garden he'll be finding himself a new family!!! I guess this is what i get for leaving my tennis shoes outside for one night!

The part that really ticks me off is he's NEVER been a digger or chewer! even when he was a little pup!!!

It looks like he did a good job at breaking up the dirt so you can do some planting...maybe he wanted a vegetable garden there. :) Can we borrow him??? ...we need to plant a few things and the dirt needs to be prepared.

Sorry about the shoes.

Can I tell you how happy I am that we don't own a dog!

oh good gracious!

see... this is why we don't have a dog yet. keeping up with 2 kiddos and a husband is enough work for me. husband's mom desperately wants us to get dogs and i keep saying no. i'm just too scatterbrained to need to remember to not leave a single thing out lest it be destroyed.

maybe your dog is lonely and needs someone to keep him occupied so that he takes out his energy by playing instead of chewing? just an idea. since i don't have a dog, it probably doesn't have a lot of merit.
