Shoes? Noooooo! She can find them without my help! Little bitch chewed the laces off one of my one pair of sneakers! So I have light colored laces on one sneaker, dark brown laces on the other. Owners of other puppies find nothing remarkable in that :)

She has plenty chew toys, incl the cardboard cylinder out of every roll of toilet paper used up.

I used to buy my dog the biggest bone I could find to chew on. Usually a shin bone off a cow. It would keep him busy for well over a week and give him a treat at the same time. Even when he had eaten any the marrow and gristle remaining on it, he would treat the thing as his 'precious'. He usually kept it until i got the shits with him continually dropping it on the timer deck or stairs at 2 or 3 in the morning, the banging sound preventing me from sleeping. Then it went in the bin and a week or two later, when I had caught up on my missed sleep, he'd get a new one.

Yup! Marrowbone good for puppies! Funny to see a tiny puppy attacking one of those but the marrow is full of goodness! I roasted marrow bone for me and Mum one time (the knobbly end bits cut off, of course. Hmmmm!

Will buy pup some marrow bone tomorrow at the market.

Damn! Joined Grade One class at obedience training, think the bitch is too old (>26 weeks) for puppy class. If she had only done the sit properly we would have advanced straight into Grade 2. Ah well, I do need to make more time to spend with the mutt doing a few minutes of training a day.

I donโ€™t like cats in Australia, kill an appalling amount of wildlife. But your way cats are native so no worries. Still prefer a dog tho.

There is no problem with cats if people keep them indoors.

And dogs kill plenty of wildlife too.
