Janet's recent post about naughty puppies
had me reminiscing. Wilson was a truly sainted little pup. He had exactly three potty accidents in the house, all our own fault. He kept his chewing to a minimum, only damaging a couple of low window sills that were right at chin level to a youngster. We did manage him carefully using a crate when we weren't home, but usually he was a good boy even when he was free.
However, there was one odd little item to which he was very attracted:
This is how they are supposed to look with the little rubber stopper still in place:
Most of these little tips were never found which leaves just one likelihood. They made a nice snack for Wilson. I never did notice them in his poops but he also never had any side effects so I guess there was no harm done.
The funniest part of all was, when we were sure he was 100% on his house breaking, we left him with friends while we went on vacation. We went to pick him up, and asked if he had been a good puppy, no messes in the house, too much barking, etc. They said he was a perfect little guy except for one thing. He ate all the rubber tips off their doorstops!
