One of the best pieces of advice for new dog owners is to stock up on chew toys. Dogs of any age have to work their jaws, but puppies need a lot more than older dogs. Their teeth are still coming in, and they want to strengthen their jaws – it’s an instinctual action. They’re going to chew on something, and it might as well be something you don’t want destroyed.
Amazingly, this dog has the strength to chew right through solid wood, so much that the chair was rendered structurally unsound. “Give a dog a bone” isn’t just a nonsense saying. They need them. Or other things to chew. Maybe this was an old chair, and they gave it to the dog on purpose? No, it’s still not that safe to chew wood.
What Do You Want for Dinner?
For many dogs, the fridge is a place of wonder and delight. What sights! What smells! Most importantly, there are so many amazing things to sample. Any dog would give its canine teeth to have free reign for a little while, and it seems one of them got its wish. It was caught in the act, but it still caused a little bit of destruction while it was in there.
It got at some big cuts of meat, knocking them onto the floor while also giving them a good, hard gnawing. While it’s a lot safer for dogs to eat raw meat than for humans, it can still come with some risks. It also made a mess, which means the owners have to clean up, and this dog gets no treats for the day.
There's a Hair in My Wine
A lot of people seem to like wine, but we don’t understand it. Dogs and most animals, on the other hand, don’t really care that much. But that’s not true for all of them, it seems: this pooch wanted to sample a little of the vino while the owners were away.
But his big, clumsy paws had a hard time with the corks, and he tried the next best thing – smashing the bottle open. He got to try a little bit, and it seems like it might be to his taste. Maybe it’s just because of the fur on his face, but he seems a little too pleased with himself. Well, at the very least, he just smashed it on the concrete, and not on the carpet.
The Good Book
Despite that not being the intended purpose, lots of animals chew on books. Dogs, cats, me when I was two...but it’s not a great idea to do it and it can make a big mess. This dog, for some strange reason, has decided that the treat of choice for the week will be the Bible.
People spend their whole lives chewing on the contents of that book, but they aren’t usually outright eating them. Maybe this dog was just looking for some answers, but it incredibly went through a pair of copies in just a couple of days. Maybe the gold foil on the edges was tasty. Maybe it was the smooth, marbled leather around the exterior. We wonder what translations he went for. Hopefully not The Message.
Passing Gas and Blame
It’s hard to get through life without letting one slip out inside an elevator at least once. You have to hope that either nobody will notice, or that they will take it in their stride. If there are enough people, it’s hard to point fingers, but you can be sure someone will smell it.
Dogs don’t care about keeping farts in, so they’re an easy one to blame...but it seems that blame can go both ways. This dog has no way to raise a hand when people ask who farted, and thus it’s the person with the dog in the elevator who will be blamed. He’s the closest person to the dog, after all, so it makes sense. And everybody has heard the dog get blamed. Sometimes they just don’t buy it.
