Puppy! I'm getting one!
#21
We discovered Goughnuts for our heavy chewer, who loves them despite the fact he can't destroy it. He tries, though! He could destroy a black Kong in less than an hour.

I'll be using a crate and will be closing off part of the living room that is cord and cable free. And part of the office. We have an older crate that completely comes apart and uses big pins on the corners. I'm going to use that to make a kind of wide fence.

Our first dog was a Border Collie mix. He didn't have their drive, thank gawd, but he did have their intelligence. He was very big, and so very fluffy.

Mine destroyed a black Kong in less than 10 minutes. She has graduated to chewing up concrete. Really. If you try taking rocks away from her, she will immediately swallow them. So, I let her chew them up and spit out the pieces. And, she is 4 years old, well past the teething stage.

Her play toys include pine cones and 4 inch logs. You should see what she did to the chain link fence.

But we still love her to death.

Check out the Goughnuts then. Their strongest ones will last much longer. We love 'em. The rings last the longest.

Try a 3 to 5 foot piece of nylon rope. Melt the ends to prevent fraying, then tie knots into each end. You will be surprised how long it will last and how much she will enjoy playing with it and playing tug with you.

We had 4 large labradors that ate pretty much any toy we bought within minutes. The rope tended to last weeks and only costs a few dollars at Lowes or Home Depot.

She won't "play" with anything. If you throw anything, you better be ready to get it yourself. I f you hand her anything you want her to tug on she will just stare at you. She does chase a frisbee. And when she catches it, she shreds it. They fly once. Now in her defense, she like to be chased. Right? Not happening. We invite my daughter to bring her dog over.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

Quinn is a she. And yeah, she's gonna be big. At the vet's Tuesday, she was 7 weeks and 13.8 lbs.

She's an opinionated love muffin. And a little too fearless. Today she jumped off the futon as if she was a Dock Dog. She was aiming for her stuffed dragon. She missed of course. She landed hard, laid there a few seconds with this look of "well, that hurt" then attacked the dragon as if nothing happened.
