It's been a long time since Lucy & I have participated in the Saturday Pet Blogger Hop... We can't wait to get out there and meet everyone.
There isn't much that Lucy loves more than an empty water bottle. It would seem that she'll do anything to get her little paws on one of these noise makers!
And when she does get her paws on an empty water bottle, it's pure bliss for the little boxer! I've tried everything to distract Lucy's attention from these bottles because I'm afraid she's going to get hurt on them. I've bought strange little covers for the water bottles, but Lucy just rips them off the bottles.
So, of course there is a plan B... I watch Lucy like a hawk and when I start to think that there's too much destruction to the water bottle, I give her a treat and sneak off with the bottle. After 20 minutes or so, my guilt from taking something that Lucy loves away from her, goes away...
Lucy & I have a bedtime ritual. I'll grab a fresh soup bone from the fridge, and Lucy & I will head upstairs. (Recently, we've added the grabbing of "Lucy's Heater" and dragging it up to the bedroom.)
Lucy will hop up on the bed and wait for me to give her the bone. If I don't give her the bone right away, Lucy will sit and wait for a couple of minutes. If that doesn't work, Lucy will lay down and give me the "Mooooom, comes on" look.
"Comes on, Mom! It's nots like you're gonna chew on dat bone. I sat. Now I'ms laying down. Don'ts I deserves dat bone? I'ms not gonna get any cuter dan dis, so if dis ain't workins, I don't know what else to do..."
