Drat!!! Foiled Again!!!

That woman!!! (Yeah, YOU, MOM!!!) She's so nosey. And she can hear the crunch of dog tooth on pen/pencil three rooms away!!! Ah, but dog tooth on rubber luggage tag or plastic highlighter -- that takes a bit longer to penetrate her eardrum. Silly me, I was so enthusiastic about my find when I pulled the place mat off the table, even though the chair was fully tucked under, that I crunched a bit louder than necessary -- just as I was about to explore the rubbery goodness of the first luggage tag after having separated the highlighter into its component parts.
Sadly, however, Mom was so excited about these luggage tags, which they bought a few weeks ago when they went to Spring Training, that I'm really in for it. She already pictured them on their suitcases when they fly to New York next month.
In her very disappointed voice, she gave me the "Just Harry, You-Are-Not-a-Puppy-Anymore-and-We-Expect-You-to-Make-More-Mature-Choices Lecture. Then I overheard her call Dogdad and warn him not to be surprised if there was just one dog here when he got home.

Yep, guess I'm The Perp -- again!!! Anyone out there who wants a really sweet, lovable (lots of kisses), incorrigible wire fox terrier? Will chew pencils for food!!!!Maybe if I close my eyes, she won't see me.
Just Harry

Hey, a dog has gotta chew what a dog has gotta chew!

It is one of Newton's Laws of Physikhs and Nature!

Martha Basset said...

Oh, we totally agree with Khyra!! You are just exploring and inquisitive - all positive traits - some humans see these things in a negative light!!!
We will stick up for you anyway..... try not to chew anything for a day or two and let your mom settle...............
love

How unfair. I never get told off for chewing Misery's sandals. It is her fault for leaving them out.

Well that's what Master and I say anyway.

Yes, it was a smile. :D

Nibbles Treats said...

We would have chewed up the St. Louis Cardinals tags also since we live in the 'Nati. Would your mom like some Cincinnati Reds ones? They are waaaayyy more cool anyway! :-)

Oh dear. I hope they decide to keep you. Every dog deserves another chance (or two or ten thousand.)

So. On another note. Muscovy Ducks. We had to go look that one up. Those guys look like they're part turkey! And what's the deal with "Muscovy"? Did they fly in from Moscow? (Our humine sister wants to know.) Whatever, just based on their name and appearance, they must be a delicacy.

Do they fly to north Florida?

Yeah, I get that all the time, too. I'm getting real good at making puppy-dog eyes and being forgiven for my dietary indiscretions. Practice, JH, practice!

Happy Tails,

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

JH, we just have one question...are your teeth and beard yellow, now? You might be forgiven for the highlighter, but we're not so sure about the luggage tags! You better hide really well!

Aire-hugs,

Ciao Jake and Just Harry!

Ah, chewing. (Gesundheit!!) Just this morning I found la mia ragazza's blushy brush sitting too close to the edge of the bathroom counter (bwah-ah-ah...). First, I held it up under my nose so I could see what I'd look like with a moustache, then I tried it out as a beardie. Then I chewed on it really good until it lost almost all of its silky black whiskers. (Plflwww -- I ga thum in my mowf ...) Then la mia ragazza chewed me out really good ... but that's another story ...(giggle!!!)

Tanti baci!
Lucia

Rhonda said...

Joey said...

Just Harry, we've all been there and done that, but the good news is that our moms always forgive us. I ate my mom's pretty orchid plant but I'm still here. Actually, I've found chewing really meaningful things has an upside - the parents start to think, "Hm, maybe the dogs don't have enough toys to keep them busy," and then along with having chewed the bad thing, you get new toys, too!

See ya!
Joey

Eric said...

Pack your case Harry. I'll wag right over to collect you!At last, A partner in crime for me.

Excited wiry wags, Eric xxx

Maggie and Mitch said...

Please come live with us, Just Harry! I could sure use a playmate that wants to play all the time and is not grumpy!

Yer friend,
Mitch

Harry, you can come here anyday, but something tells us that that furry cute face is going to win over the mom very quickly.

She can always get more luggage tags but there is only one Harry.
