Oh yuk, it's bedtime.
Usually this is my favorite time of day. But I just discovered the puppies have been using my chinstrap as their latest tug-of-war toy. Now its completely wet from puppy spit. And it's time for bed. So, do I wear a cold wet puppy spit chinstrap to bed? Or do I rough it and go without a chinstrap? Tough decision. Maybe we should take a poll...........

Don't underestimate the curative powers of puppy spit...oh, are we off topic? I recommend a quick rinse followed by a brief session with Mrs. r_g's hair dryer.

I say go without tonight and see the difference in your leaks, with and without.
Maybe you have trained your mouth to stay shut r_g.

RE: Oh yuk, it's bedtime.
Well I'll be glad to get my chinstrap back. Sleeping without it was awful... My leak numbers were fine. I don't think I opened my mouth or anything like that. But I spent all night obsessing about it. "Wow, this is much more comfortable" I thought. "Something must be wrong..."
........."Awww all comfy now, drifting off to sleep......." "Wait! What was that? I think my mouth was coming open!!!!....... Nope, just my imagination. Drift off to sleep now." ...................... "Well? Ya gonna do that or not?"

p.s. I'd love to stay and chat, but I've got to go pick up a case or two of chinstraps.

Maybe the PUPPIES need chin straps (or muzzles).

Remember, either you train the puppies, or, they train you Smile

Ain't nothing wrong with puppy spit (once it warms to body temp).

RE: Oh yuk, it's bedtime.
At least you won't have to wonder what that strange taste in your mouth is upon awakening. It might be a good idea to keep your mouth closed when sleeping with puppies since that mask may look like a fire plug to them. Dielaughing

Hi retired_guy,
I'd opt for the idea of getting several back, of course, making sure the puppies couldn't get them, (Ha-Ha.)
