Whatcha chewin' on??

Well last nite I am making dinner, not really paying attention to the dogs, I dont think they would get into too much trouble playing like they always do. I walk through the living room to get the phone, and I notice both of the dogs are chewing something on the floor. I quickly react, because our kitten likes to knock the rocks out of our fountain on the table, and Max almost choked on one before, so I go to grab it out. When I open Harlies mouth, I pull out this thing that looks like a peice of plastic...trying to figure out what it was, I reach in Max's mouth and get out what he is chewing on...and I immediatley realized what they were chewing on...it was a little crystal castle that Josh and I had gotten for our wedding!! They had chewed it up so much that I couldnt barely tell what it was! I was so mad at them, but I knew the culprit had to have been the kitten, who is the knocker-offer-of the-shelves. Well Max was chewing on the base of the crystal figurine, it is like this little hilltop, with steps in the side that lead to the castle, and Harlie had the castle, or what was left of it, in her mouth. It was unfixable but I couldnt really be too mad at them, since it must have been on the floor for them to get it. But anyways, it was a pretty special thing to me, because my whole wedding was a prince/princess theme, and the cake was even the shape of a castle. It was a really cool gift. But oh well, things like this happen. Then I got more worried about other things, like the fact that I couldnt find peices to it...so I think Harlie or Max might have ate some of it. It is really small, but still sharp to me. So I have been watching them, both still eating and going to the bathroom, and playing like normal. So so far everything seems normal. Hopefully it stays that way, if not, we are so going to the vet. But those little boogers sure ganged up on me didnt they! Gotta love em'... Here is a pic of my no longer together crystal castle!! Dingy dogs! Ha ha.

Yeah, I am fine now, haha! I think there is one of those crystal stores at our mall, Im going to see if they can somehow put it back together, or else maybe melt it and maybe try to make something similar. (I have no clue if they can, but hey its worth a try.) If not, its no big deal. Im just glad that so far there isnt any ruptured intestines! We went out and bought a squirt bottle for the kitten (HAHA!) So when we see her hop on to tables and shelves, we can squirt her! I think she is getting the drift not to get on the tables. She doesnt like water like Gabby does! Harlie and Max, though, absolutley love the squirt bottle! Its so hilarious. Max just keeps obsessively licking at the water, which is funny, but Harlie is the one that cracks us up. When we get the water bottle out, we say "READY!" and about five feet away from us, Harlie will stand up on her hind legs and bite at the air 'till we squirt it in her mouth! Its hilarious, if only we could get her to play dead immediatley after squirting her...haha...we are gonna work on that one. They always find a way to make ya not mad at them anymore! Not that I can stay mad at the smooshy faces long anyhow...

Ugh. I know all too well how it feels to lose a "keepsake" to unruly hooligans ! Doesn't it just burn your butt when they do such things when you're right there in the next room ? Sheeeesh.
I'm lucky in that Lizzie, with her one eye and messed up feeties, doesn't usually get up in high places so I can put stuff out of my boys' reach ... makes it tougher when they have co-conspirators, huh ??

I'm sorry Melissa! I know it stinks to have something you love broken.

Hey, next time they eat something sharp that could cause problems, dip about 10 cotton balls in some peanut butter or honey and feed them to the doggies. (I say 10 because they're both larger dogs, smaller dogs need less.) The cotton will wrap around the sharp pieces and help 'escort it out,' so to speak.

Thanks Jade, I thought about that, because around Christmas, it says to do that if your dog eats any glass ornaments. I have cottonballs and peanut butter, and I thought about doing it. Neither of them are showing any signs of a problem yet, should I still do it now just to be safe? Or if they ate any, is it most likley out of thier stomachs by now? I dont know if they actually ate any...but I wouldnt doubt if they got any down, since it was in a bunch of little peices though...

And SharonM, yes they are true brats sometimes! But I really dont think they would have ever touched it if it hadnt been knocked on the floor...I seriously think that the kitten did knock it down, because last nite, when we were watching tv, she hopped up there and started batting around our Castle candle!!! She got a squirt for that one!! Im sure glad she doesnt like water! Ha ha...but then I always feel bad for squirting her! Ha ha...

Nah, don't bother now. It's too far ahead of the cotton to likely make any difference.

I wish I would have thought of it right when it happened. But of course...my brain must have farted! Hopefully everything keeps going the way it is so far. Still eating and going to the bathroom like normal...and jumping around like jackrabbits too!
