Our Chewing Est Dog

We named him Buddy. He is a Great Dane German Shepherd mix A baby; we keep saying we should have called him Marmaduke. In one month he has chewed up at least a hundred things. He has chewed the lids off of twenty-four water bottles and six juices. Did he dump them? No. He did it without spelling a drop of juice. I am down to two pairs of shoes.. Four are tattered and torn. He chewed up a brand-new car cover which had never been used. He demolished a package of Styrofoam paper plates too. When we go to bed we don’t know what we will wake up to. The living room is usually full of things we forgot that we had owned. One day I recognized the shredded material but did not know why. It was a child’s umbrella, I had not seen for ten years. He is the chewing-est dog we have ever had. And we have adopted nineteen dogs. If he ever decides to chew up the furniture We might have to think of obedience school. We have chew marks on our TV remotes. He demolished an Amazon gift card box. Need I go on? We love the big lug. We call him the big galoot; and we are glad he was dumped here.

Caren, your great love (respect and understanding) for your animals is so refreshing. Many people would have dumped this animal long ago, but you and Joe have loved him and persevered. He is a gorgeous animal. I think he will be better after he gets all of his teeth and his Kong. I can't imagine him devouring a Kong, and you can always refill it with goodies!

I think the pet stores have Kongs, that's where we bought our first one. I hope you had it shipped express!!!

The KONG I thought I had ordered never came, so we re-ordered one yesterday. UGH! He has devoured so much! So very very much! He ate up six doggie treats yesterday - I am talking treats that are rawhide and a foot and a half wide! We still LOVE him to pieces.
