Puppies are punks...

Yep, that's what I said, puppies are punks.

My hubby is pretty sick right now with a bad head cold, but he spent an hour or so yesterday afternoon putting some pipe wrap around a couple of exposed water pipes on the back of the house. He knew a cold front was headed in tomorrow and was trying to do what he could to ensure that we wouldn't have any frozen pipes. After he finished the task and headed in to wrap up in one of our woobies, I stayed out for a while picking up puppy messes and noticed that Gus was eyeing a couple of the freshly covered pipes. Something told me that wasn't a good thing, so I put a couple things in front of the pipes so they'd be out of sight and, hopefully, out of mind.

Welllllllll, when I went out to feed the puppies this morning, there were little pieces of pipe wrap aaaalllllll over the yard. There wasn't even a trace of wrap on any of the pipes, including the ones I had tried to hide from them. Aaaarrrrgggghhhhh!!!!!! Puppies!!!!!

Wait a minute, they aren't even "legally" puppies anymore, they turned a year old right before Christmas. But they still act like puppies, eating every freaking thing in sight...and out of sight, too. It's a good thing they're cute..... :)

ROFL We got one them kinda of dogs. Dan moved his family back to Pa. That included a doxie (Hans). He sounds like your dogs. He chews everything in site. He is so jealous of Gabby. If she touches something, he will destroy it when he gets a chance. Ugh threatens to shot him at least twice a day.
Thank God he goes home at night. We just babysit Hans and Gabby during the day.
