Sally I am laughing so hard. Sorry, but it is funny.the look on her face in the 2 nd picture is like oops I'm busted! She must have been storing up in her little mind all the things she would get into when you were not looking. Did she eat the bread and peaches? Or just strew them around her bed. Still laughing.

Hey, just thought of something, you can just tell the electric and phone company you did not pay your bill. Because the dog ate it. Shame you did not have some homework. LOL

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Oh Sally,

So much for a relaxing bath...winker

That Merry Myrtle sure can be mischievious when she puts her mind to it.  The pictures just had me seriously laughing.  The things these youngsters find to get into....peaches and bread...who would have thouhgt that would be of interest.

After straightening up things up I'm sure it was time for some chocolate and wine!!

Hahaha, Sally!  she sure wanted to keep you busy on a Sunday.  Nice to have some laughs in this forum, after so many sad news lately.  These funny moments are what makes motherhood to dogs unique.

Yeah that would be something Snickers & Jazz would do (more like Snickers).  And yes Snickers ate my remote one she totally destroyed the first one I could glue what she chewed.

Sally,

When I saw this, I had an instantaneous super happy flashback of Polly doing the same thing as an 8 month old pup.......she completely shredded a foot and a half stack of newspapers and magazines for my picking-up pleasure.........All I could do was cover my mouth to keep myself from laughing hysterically, and just look at it all. She was remorseful, and was it a mess, but there was NO way I could yell at her.

Merry Myrtle surely looks pleased with her personal decorating gift to you.....!! Just love her beautiful face !!

Much Love,

Bonnie & Angel Polly
