I have a naughty dog.
She’s 12+, moving slowly but three times this week I’ve come home to chaos. Three nights ago she had gotten into Nonny’s room and eaten the last two little bags of kitty treats that I had wrapped as gifts, as well as ripping open the wrapping on another gift. One box with a Ukrainian egg was downstairs, but luckily not chewed or broken.
Two days ago she managed to get a hold of a bag of spiced almonds that I thought were pushed back far enough on the counter. Guess not. She ate the entire bag (about a cup of almonds). I also found the box that had had rosettes in it on the floor, but YA says the box was empty when she left. Tell that to the shredded tissue paper that was in the box!
Tonight Rhiannon had managed to get back into Nonny’s room… she pushed the gate down. There wasn’t anything to eat in there anymore but she did knock down the box with the remaining Ukrainian eggs. Again no damage (luckily). That box is now locked on the attic steps.
She can’t even blame it on YA’s dog, as Guinevere is always kenneled when we’re out of the house. All the other dogs I’ve had over the years have become mellower over the years. Guess Rhiannon is going against the grain!
Are you getting naughtier with age?
