Oops I ate(s) it ...

Allo there good furry and fur-less readers !

Dennis Vizla passed us the challenge of recounting tales of what food we've stolen from humans and gobbled. We were going to appoint Joe as our Dog Woods spokesdog since he's got the most experience in exotic chews (i.e. non-edibles) but then we realise that his non-edibles are not considered food.
So ... what have we stolen off our Chief's plate? Nothing really. Come to think of it, we've been really GOOD dogs. No stealing human food ... then again, this TOP DOG would if only I was tall enough to reach the top of the table ... :P
But since ol' Joe needs some form of distraction from his itchy stitches, we'd let ol Joe recount his non-edible chewing adventures which landed him on the V-E-T's operating table, not once but TWICE!


Thank chews! Thank chews! Short TOP DOG Tuffy, you do me much honor!

I guess you good readers would have read about my surgery(ies) by now. I must say my stitches itches like hell! With that dratted collar that the Chief fixed on me, I can't even reach 'em ... But! the sight of me precious ball (irritatingly beyond reach) keeps me distracted. Chief not trusting me with it now without supervision ... :P

Without further a-woof, I'd just highlight some of my finer chewing moments ...
  • Ate me first rubber squeaky pig of a toy ... which thanks to my younger more robust digestive system cleared in no time - much to the Chief's horror of finding parts of toy in me regular output ...
  • Stole and wolf down a small towel. Needless to say, my poop was a little stringy after that.
  • Highly recommend newspapers! They're a great source of fibre ...

  • Snatched the TOP DOG's cuter toys and enjoyed eating it - well, part of what could be eaten - which explains the stitches .... and the fact that me digestive system is not quite as robust as it once was ...:p
  • Chewed through them holee-molee balls which since been confiscated before could chow it down ... they're really not quite as tough as they claim to be but it's still the toughest toy (apart from the gigantic stone of a ball at the bottom of the garden that takes two human beans to move) in the pet store ...

  • Last but not least, had it not been the support and woofs of the Dog Woods Pack - esp. Trixie and Fur Kids get themselves into all sorts of trouble by stealing bipeds shoes and chewing 'em, swallowing all them non-edibles would have been no fun at all ... (those short basset only steal food ...:P)



  1. OMdoG... I don't know what to say to your choice of food, Joe!! LOL!!.. you sure keep your Chief very busy!!

  2. I am inclined to consume toys as well. Best way to hide them, I say.


  3. Good thing I read this post at work. Gretchen would be alarmed to see some of her favorite toys on your consumption list!

  4. Oh my dogness!!!
    You have to play with toys not eat them!!!
    No wonder you guys are best friends with the VET!!!

  9. Wow Joe, You've eaten some neat stuff. Bailey likes to eat things she shouldn't. When she was a little pup she liked to eat pebbles. The vet told us not to let her eat them, but she would sneak out after dark and swallow them.

    She eats all kinds of toys, but the worst was when Mom gave her a peanut butter stuffed kong. Instead of licking the peanut butter out, she ate the whole thing. Crazy girl.

  10. Gads! We thought dawson was something for eating and pooping ear plugs.

  11. Well done...or is that not the proper term!

    I've not yet destroyed anything - that's why my toybox overfloweth!

    Happy Healing!


  12. wow, the humans must stay EXTRA busy at your house!!

  13. Joe, you might need to retake Toys 101 and find out how to play with them and not eat them:)

    Thanks for all that sharing.

    woos, the OP Pack

  14. Well. Looks like cookies are not your favorite treat!
    Well deserved award!
    Kisses and hugs
