Sugar and Thunder and Michaelangelo

January 21st, 2010 at 11:53 am

If it weren't so bad, I'd laugh at my dog's artistic attempt yesterday --

These were the blinds in the living room. Look on the bright side, I never liked them anyway and now I get to either sew curtains or replace with non-mini blinds.

We had a thunderstorm and Sugar is terrorized by that kind of noise. We take him out of town on July 4.

The prior day he was out in the backyard, as usual, while we worked and schooled. Very little thundering, but he jumped the 6 ft wood fence and got out. It's been a few years since he's done that, and we have moved wood piles, composting and strengthened gates to prevent it.

Thankfully I had 4 messages when I got home that day from someone a few streets away who had snagged and returned him.

Therefore, I had left him inside the next day. My mistake.

That was the tea cart shelf with picture frames in the entrance. S'ok. Those were mostly frames from the $1 store.

A shredded potted silk plant. It was over 10 years old, gotten alot of mileage from use.

The first year we adopted him we crated him when this happened. He was SUPERDOG and bent the wires apart, bloodied himself, and punctured the F150 tire which was next to the crate (flat).

Our vet is not crazy about sedating him, neither are we.

So I took the day off due to thunderstorm prediction. Told the office think of it as a 'sick kid'.

He's doing much better today. So am I. I cleaned up everything, replaced the potted silk plant with a 40% off Michaels coupon and love the new one. (Not cheap, ie $45, but I expect it will be here for another 10 years).

Tomorrow off to the dollar store for a few replacement frames.

Just our little brand of earthquake around here.

    Oh my word! Is he a big dog?
    I always think my minimoocher is going to go through the window at the squirrels.

    Sugar is a scant 40 lb golden retriever mix, on the high strung side.

    Oh my gosh. I'm glad you took it all in stride.

    The first weekend we got our dog, we had a thunderstorm. We came home to find 3 different blinds shredded like yours, curtains destroyed, couch chewed through, and the dog missing. He jumped through a screened open window and took off down the road. We were so lucky that a good samaritan grabbed him before he got run over and held onto him until we could get him. Needless to say, we always leave him in his crate anytime we leave the house now! So, I feel for you! Smile
